Chicago Police Department Documentary on Orthodoxy

Very interesting. The CPD has done documentaries on many religions, as a way of educating their officers on how to relate to members of different religions.

Definitely interesting. Not a bad quick-hit video, considering the audience.  We still need to do a better job of identifying ourselves without using the words "Roman Catholic" or "Jewish" in the description.  (I think the notable exception is when describing multiple ethnic parishes in one faith - that we can parallel with the ethnic RC situation of old.)

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.""
