The Purpose of Religion
Roman goes solo with Catholic priest, Father Chris Townsend. Roman and Chris discuss the purpose of religion in a pluralistic, liberal democracy. Chris argues that religion gives meaning to people and that the church should create dialogue to heal existential and psychological wounds. Roman investigates whether religion really does give people meaning, and what the future of religion might be. The conversation ends with a discussion around the repercussions the sex scandals have had on the church.
