99: Do moderate Christians enable fundamentalism?
Sep 22, 2011 · 1 hr 7 min
Inspired by a post on the forum following the last show on Christian PTSD, Emery challenges Scott's moderate positions on the Bible, and asks whether Scott's moderate positions simply empower fundamentalists by legitimizing their dependence on scripture. We look at passages from Sam Harris's book "The End of Faith" to explore the idea that moderates in a religion enable the very extremism they try to distance themselves from.
