Today we have a special show examining the issue of Christian Fundamentalism and its Christian Supremacist tendencies. Using the two terrorist attacks in Norway over last weekend as a backdrop - attacks to which a Christian Fundamentalist Supremacist has confessed, while calling for a civil war in Europe to end multiculturalsm and defeat Islam - we will look at precisely why alleged "pastors" like John Hagee and politicians like Rick Perry of Texas are a danger not just to Amer
In the episode Craig Hart discusses Christian fundamentalism.
Joe tackles issues of faith with Wade Fransson, a former minister in the Worldwide Church of God – a religion eventually denounced as a cult.
Fundamentalist religions are known for intolerance, for demanding strict adherence by followers to a religious text, for requiring individuals to place more value on the religious community than on their own individuality.
Why are such religions growing in appeal around the world, and why do so many Americans flock to them?
Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately? There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective. Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting. But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree! If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you!
It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!

In this week's episode, a wide ranging discussion with Luke Austin Daugherty, beginning with a consideration of whether fundamentalisms secularism or religious avoid confrontation with mortality and from there proceed to a consideration of death itself, its implications for the human condition, civilization and politics, concluding with some riffs on historical consciousness and thoughts on ordering one's own life.
Radical Analysis aims to spelunk the questions that confront us, both as individuals and as a society. It is a forum for conversations that move beneath the surface to excavate the roots of those challenges. It is animated by that spirit of the Radical articulated so elegantly by Paulo Freire:
The radical, committed to human liberation, does not become the prisoner of a "circle of certainty" within which reality is also imprisoned. On the contrary, the more radical a person is, the more fully he or she enters into reality so that, knowing it better, he or she can better transform it. This individual is not afraid to confront, to listen, to see the world unveiled. This person is not afraid to meet the people or to enter into dialogue with them. This person does not consider himself or herself the proprietor of history or of all people, or the liberator of the oppressed; but he or she does commit himself or herself, within history, to fight at their side...
