Revisiting Israel

Irreverend: Faith and Current Affairs

12-04-2024 • 1 hr 37 mins

Church of England revs Jamie Franklin and Thomas Pelham sit down to talk about the most pressing issues of church and state. This time:
- British aid workers killed in Gaza. Is the moral case against Israel's war efforts becoming clearer?
- Attempts to decriminalise abortion resurface. We respond to a debate on the subject featuring pro-choice activist Ann Furedi.
- The European Court of Human Rights rules that Switzerland must do more to protect its citizens from climate change.
- And a listener asks us to discuss our views on the death penalty.
That and much, much more as ever. Enjoy!
