BP This Week

BP This Week: Charlottesville and ‘Whataboutism’


John Stonestreet

After last week’s “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia ended in the death of a counter-protester, Americans have been engaged in a fierce debate over racism, violence, the “alt-right” movement, and President Trump’s response. Ed Stetzer and Warren Cole Smith talk about why it’s important to condemn the white supremacists in Charlottesville before shifting the discussion to violence on the radical left.

Our hosts also wrestle with the ongoing threat of radical Islam in light of this week’s attack in Barcelona.

Finally, Dr. Jay Richards of the Discovery Institute shares some insights about the upcoming total solar eclipse and what it tells us about our privileged place in the universe.
