Rev. Chris Buice and his Knoxville congregation, Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church (TVUUC), will be featured on Bill Moyers Journal in a television segment. This episode focuses on how the “shock-jock” media has impacted political discourse exploring the relationship between hate speech and violence. The program is scheduled to air at 9 PM Friday, September 12, 2008 on WGCU PBS.

“A lot of people are hurling insults from the safety of television studios, the safety of radio studios, the safety of cyberspace,” Buice said. “So that’s a void in our community—the chance to be in the same room and to have these exchanges and remember the humanity of the person on the other side.” The program includes an interview with Buice and a segment from his recent sermon titled “God, Gays, Guns, and the Gospel.”

If you can’t watch it tonight, you can most likely view it later on the PBS website http://www.pbs.org/moyers/journal/index-flash.html .
