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!
