Episode #38: Ender's Game and the Resurrection

Episode #38: Ender's Game and the Resurrection

Karl and Jared have one of the deepest, most thoughtful, and intense discussions of their friendship when they start discussing Luke 20:27-38, which they both agree is the Gospel reading that keeps on giving.  But first, they wonder if they should see Ender's Game, given Orson Scott Card's homophobic public statements, and talk about the ethics of media consumption in general while discussing Alyssa Rosenberg's article on vulture, "Ender's Game, Chris Brown, and the Slippery Slope of Ethical Pop-Culture Consumption."  Do our fantasies matter?  Do they shape who we are?  And does imagining the Kingdom of Heaven help us come any closer to it, or help us to avoid the ethical pitfalls of our lives here and now.  You can listen to the podcast here or by subscribing through the iTunes store.
