I was only able to tolerate the first 15 minutes. I recall Krista Tippett’s statement in her book, “Speaking of Faith,” that there are certain people that she would never have on her program. I believe she mentioned people like Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell, along with some fundamentalist atheists like Richard Dawkins. I believe she invoked intolerance in her reasoning for excluding such. Does the Program’s name change (‘Speaking of Faith’ to ‘On Being) indicate more than a shift in program focus? Are offensive and discriminatory statements now encouraged? Are intolerant attitudes now accommodated (or even celebrated)? I hope the 30 minutes of programing that followed after my tolerance was exceeded were much better than the 15 minutes I heard.
