In this podcast, hosts Jeff and Bill respond to a listener who thinks they are too quick to dismiss non-Western cultures. Can’t a culture’s values be valuable, she asks, even when their practices are less than desirable? In other words, can’t we condemn the human sacrifice of the Aztecs without being dismissive of the whole culture? Bill bases his answer on the Mafia, and Jeff pontificates on St. Patrick. Guess who the spiritual one is!

Living in a small town, host Jeff Baldwin is always slow to see the latest movies–so in this show, co-host Bill Jack brings him up to speed on two movies he really liked: Blood Diamond and Amazing Grace. Both movies have redemptive themes, but only one offers true redemption (easy to guess which one, right?). As a bonus, this gives Jeff and Bill the opportunity to expound on the life of William Wilberforce.
