Religion attacked around the world — does faith have a future? (Full episode)

On this special episode of News.Views.Hughes we take a look at the retreat of religion from public life in the West and growing hostility to Christianity around the world, from an uptick in anti-Christian persecution in China to growing apathy toward churchgoing and even belief in God among younger generations. RT America's Natasha Sweatte and Trinity Chavez report. Clinical psychologist Dr. Norman Fried and author Austin Ruse join to discuss the crisis facing religion in our time and to weigh in on the intersection of religious intolerance and the recent conflagration between Israel and Palestine. Plus, we hear from Catholic philosopher Tim Gordon about how to rekindle religiosity in a new generation of Catholics by retreating from the trend to modernize Church teaching that has been dominant in recent decades.
