For over three decades, WPBT2’s Viewpoint has brought various religious leaders and scholars together for discussions on topics of religious, moral and ethical importance to both South Florida and the world.
The goal of this monthly religion roundtable program is to provide a means by which the numerous religions of our community can come together to openly discuss timely and vital issues.
As communities grow and diversify, faith becomes an increasingly significant factor, and each religion offers a unique solution to the concerns of the community. How do today’s young adults view religion and spirituality? Is religion hampering science? Who hates in the name of God?
Spearheaded by host Steve Gushée, Viewpoint attempts to answer these and other questions in an effort to foster communication within the community and help educate viewers on different points of view.
