Accidentally hijacked the History Channel thread with a similar post. I think I may have killed that thread. Lets see if I can kill this one before it starts. :o
I have enjoyed “Decoding Christianity” on the Smithsonian Channel. I watch it on satellite, don’t know if it is available on cable. Although the host Christy Kenneally, is a former Catholic priest, the show is not particularly anti-catholic. As a matter of fact I was a bit surprised to learn Mr. Kenneally had been a priest because he certainly doesn’t show the bitterness of the few other defrocked priests I have run into. Although some of his comments suggest that he no longer is a believer, he seems to still have a certain reverence and respect for the Church he left. The series on a whole appears to be a well balanced and fair look into the many aspects and Christianity and the various beliefs that Christians of various traditions hold.
