Redefining our relationship with the homeless

Last year, Portland City Council approved a pilot "overnight sleeping" program that would permit churches and other non-profits to make their parking lots available to people currently living in their cars. The measure, loosed based on a similar program in Eugene, was intended to offer refuge for those on the brink while more permanent support was found. When Sellwood's Moreland Presbyterian Church announced earlier this spring their intent to be the first church to carry out the program - in their case for a single woman living in her car - a vocal minority raised a sufficient ruckus that the church delayed implementation of its plan.

Hosted by Abe Proctor.

Last week's discussion, as can happen at KBOO, veered into unexpectedly heated and fertile territory. Who knew that July 4 fireworks could be the source of such controversy?

The resulting discourse begged several questions: What is the nature of progressivism? What does it mean to be a liberal in the early 21st Century? What is our struggle about, and how ought we to struggle? Why should we struggle in the first place? And just how pretentious is talk radio, anyway?
