There is so much religious conflict in the world today, and more than enough right here at home in the U.S. Why is it that everytime I tune into this show, it seems to have some topic or focus that is so high concept, or so divorced from what's going on in the world.

In the streets of LA there were people protesting in front of the mormon temple about that church's involvement in the effort to repeal the rights of gay people to marry in California. Where was this show when that real, tangible conflict was taking place? There was a debacle over the Catholic church's effort to rehabilitate a bishop who is a Holocaust denier, which once again opened up the issue of the church's responses to that event. Where was this show in the midst of that real, tangible conflict?

Why on earth can't Krista Tippett cover religious issues that are truly relevant today? I'm going to stop listening to this show, because it seems to be way too timid and fluffy.
