KQED World: Mon, Aug 27, 2012 -- 6:30 AM

Does Sexual Orientation Equal Identity? (Episode #507)

KQED World: Mon, Aug 20, 2012 -- 6:30 AM

The practice of labeling people by sexual orientation - homosexual, heterosexual, etc. - started only a century ago. At times labels can help make sense of our world, but at other times labeling individuals can be dehumanizing and can even be a form of injustice. Our sexuality need not define us, argues Jenell Williams Paris, anthropology professor at Messiah College and author of The End of Sexual Identity: Why Sex is Too Important to Define Who We Are. Shirley Hoogstra hosts.

Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy (Episode #506)

KQED World: Mon, Aug 13, 2012 -- 6:30 AM

Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a remarkable young theologian and pastor in World War II Germany who joined the Resistance in several plots to assassinate Hitler. His devotional books are still best sellers today. That's because, according to Eric Metaxas, Bonhoeffer was also a prophet. Metaxas, author of the New York Times #1 bestseller Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy, explains that term and what it means for all of us. Shirley Hoogstra hosts.

Arab Spring: Revolution Or Reformation? (Episode #505)

KQED World: Mon, Aug 6, 2012 -- 6:30 AM

Three quarters of Muslims in the Middle East are young (18-35 years old), and today's communication technologies allow them to form a new kind of community that bridges ethnic, national, and sectarian borders. As these Muslims actively pursue democracy, the resulting changes--according to writer and religion scholar Reza Aslan, author of No god but God: The Origins, Evolution, and Future of Islam--will be as monumental as the Protestant Reformation was for Christianity. Karen Saupe hosts.
