Should We Welcome Muslim Immigrants? Ft. Matthew Soerens and Matthew Kaemingk In this episode, we chat with Matthew Soerens, US Director of Church Mobilization for World Relief, and Matthew Kaemingk, Professor of Christian Ethics at Fuller Seminary and author of Christian Hospitality and Muslim Immigration in an Age of Fear.

Holy Post Episode 471: Oreos, Ethics, & Afghanistan with Matthew Soerens With religious believers among the most likely to downplay the seriousness of both the pandemic and climate change, a recent article claims secular people and atheists are now more empathic and moral than conservative Christians. But is the problem really that evangelicals are less moral, or that they’re more easily deceived? Then, Matthew Soerens from World Relief talks about the unfolding tragedy in Afghanistan. What dangers do the thousands of Afghans who helped the American military face as the Taliban takes back the country, and what obligation does the U.S. have to help them? While evangelicals remain widely opposed to welcoming refugees, will they make an exception for those who risked their lives to help American troops?
