About this Episode

Most Rev. George J. Lucas, Archbishop of Omaha, discusses the Christian response to racism, hate speech, and similar forms of division in light of recent events in Charlottesville and elsewhere.

"The Gospel has a response that is not simply reaction, but it's the response of the Gospel through the ages. It's important at this particular moment in our country that we focus the truth of the Gospel on this particular challenge."
