The Patrick Madrid Show: April 04, 2024 – Hour 1

Join Patrick as he explores Richard Dawkins’ surprising remarks on cultural Christianity, his preference for it over Islam, and the reactions that followed. As an avowed atheist celebrated in secular circles, Dawkins’ newfound appreciation for the aesthetics and ethical framework of Christianity comes as quite the surprise. Patrick unpacks his statements, considers the implications for interfaith dialogue, and reflects on the potential personal journey that even a staunch atheist like Dawkins might be on towards faith. Will external beauty lead to the discovery of an internal truth?
