21st-Century Faith
21st-Century Faith

Many of the stories NOW has covered have dealt with faith in the modern world. Below we offer some food for thought about 21st-century religion and faith around the world.

"We should listen to prophets like Mohammed, Jesus, Ghandi, Martin Luther King, Jr., and all those who teach love and respect for one another, but we shouldn't pit one belief against another belief and bring atrocities down on all the innocents of the world." --Helen

"So why does your show and your website act as if atheists don't even exist? I mean, "NOW asks God or country?" It's painfully evident how much care you took in making this segment not to offend the delicate sensibilities of Muslims, Christians, and Jews. What about the atheists and agnostics who are utterly baffled by all this religious hatred?" -Richard
