On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (03/12/20), Hank discusses democratic socialism, a topic brought up by Senator Bernie Sanders, who said recently “when I talk about democratic socialism, I’m not looking at Venezuela. I’m not looking at Cuba. I’m looking at countries like Denmark and Sweden.” Which raises the question, are countries like Denmark and Sweden great examples of the exceptionalism of democratic socialism? No, says Hank. In the second segment of the broadcast, Hank addresses the question of how a good God could create a world in which things can go desperately wrong, a question brought up in light of the current coronavirus pandemic. A common refrain in the 21st century is that religion is the root cause of the great atrocities of human history. But in reality, more people have died as a result of secularist ideologies in the last century alone than have died in all the religiously motivated conflicts of Western history.
Hank also answers the following question:
- Why is it that you don’t mention the tens of millions of people murdered by communists?
