For the in-depth segment same as last week plus one new one (#3).

  • In a video over at Prager University’s Prager opens with the often used metaphor of evil and darkness.  He claims that is wrong, and that actually evil is bright, so bright that we do not want to look at it, and thus we find it much easier to simply down play it or even ignore it. While he applies this to the danger of Iran, it could just as easily be applied to a whole range of issues.   Given the current focus of “God is Love” and the focus on positive uplifting messages, how do we deal with the fact that evil does exist? How do we face it.
