Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly

Episode #339

The program included a report investigating the extent to which US foreign policy makers take ethical issues into account when engaging in relations with countries who violate human rights; a cover story looking at a new hospice program implemented by Angola Prison Warden Burl Cain in which prisoners would be buried in wooden, rather than cardboard, boxes and could volunteer to take care of dying inmates; and a feature on a small German town tradition, in which every ten years its people perform the Passion Play depicting Christ's last five days of life, which was believed to have stopped a plague from spreading in 1633.
