Bill Moyers Journal

Season 13, Episode 12 of 53

This week, Bill Moyers Journal gets insight from three leading public thinkers who taught a unique course - "Christianity and the U.S. Crisis" - at Union Theological Seminary, the oldest nondenominational seminary in the country. Renowned scholars Cornel West, Serene Jones, and Gary Dorrien offer a fresh take what our religious traditions and our core ethics and values as a nation say about America's politics, policy, and the challenges of balancing capitalism and democracy. "This is a society that has stoked and celebrated greed virtually to the point of self-destruction. We can't just go on saying, 'Well if we can just patch this thing up and get back to where we were, things will be all right.' And none of us believe that, so we also have to talk about what was wrong with the system to begin with that had outcomes that you can't really justify morally," says Dorrien.
