Friday Morning News. Potential to have an indepth conversation on religion in our times.


MSNBC is one of my favorite morning shows. Its Friday and the closing segment on Morning Joe today featured a conversation with a Catholic Priest and a Rabbi about religion, unions, government and world turmoil, I think; it was a light conversation. The Priest and the Rabbi talked about their sermons this weekend and noted the similarities in message. Okay. I kept thinking though, what would be discussed at a Islāmic or Buddhist or Hindu (or Baptist) place of worship? And how would their messages compare with each other on the same topic?

Perhaps MSNBC’s Morning Joe hosts will consider broadening their conversation to include a fuller representation of religious thought; even in New York City. In these contentious and historical times, what religious leaders are saying to their parishioners to encourage, make whole, minister to, make sense of a fast-evolving world would make for great conversation. I hope they do this. I think they would present an open and honest conversation.
