Christians aren't always right about Christianity
Christians aren't always right about Christianity

Listen
AIR DATE: October 17, 2011

The militant atheism of Sam Harris, Christopher Hitchens and Richard Dawkins misunderstands how religion works and takes the worst examples of irreligious behavior to all religion as evil. Not so fast, says Harvard Professor of Divinity Karen King. Far from making people the violent bigots that Dawkins and Harris see, Christianity can raise people's empathy and truly improve human behavior and it has been doing so since the time of Christ.
 
King will explaining why Christians aren't always the best examples of Christianity at a panel discussion on "Belief and Unbelief in America" at the Black Mountain Institute at UNLV this Thursday at 7pm.
 
GUEST
Karen King, Prof of Divinity, Harvard Divinity School, and author, Reading Judas: The Gospel of Judas and the Shaping of Christianity
