BP This Week: The U. S. Strikes

The Death of Soleimani; Violence in Places of  Worship; the Best Decade Ever?

01/3/20

John Stonestreet

Shane Morris

John Stonestreet and Shane Morris discuss the stunning U. S. strike against Iranian General and terrorist mastermind Qasem Soleimani. Did the U. S. act justly, especially in light of the Christian Just War tradition?

They also discuss the sadly ever-more-common acts of violence in U. S. houses of worship. What’s more frightening? Armed church members (as one USA Today columnist wrote) or the fact that churchgoers find it necessary to army themselves? What does that say about our society.

Finally, was the last decade truly the best in human history? In terms of the lowering poverty, boosting health, and increasing longevity and other factors, the answer may be . . . yes.
