122: Orthodox Christianity and Capitalism Revisited
June 26, 2009 Length: 51:50
The previous podcast on this subject stimulated comments about whether we covered the bases on this issue fully or dispassionately enough. In this conversation, Fr John Whiteford, (ROCOR) priest and frequent conservative commentator and blogger, and Dr. Amir Azarvan, (ROCOR) layman, political science lecturer, and self-described "social democrat," talk about poverty, the welfare state, whether alms-giving is spiritually effective if government mandated, and the best way to live out the Orthodox Christian life in the world.
"Although I spent five years in a Hare Krsna temple as a novice monk, I am also a faithful listener of Ancient Faith Radio. I am now reading about Sol Maria Jesus, and the sacred hymns you play set the perfect background for my studies. Again, thank you for such a valuable website. All glories to Lord Jesus Christ."
