Father Bob Maguire: Building a Civil Society Despite Elections
Parish priest? Yes. Social advocate? Sure. Revolutionary? Maybe. Cantankerous? Definitely. Father Bob Maguire has become a living national treasure for his forthright opinions.
In this Lunchbox/Soapbox he talks about religion as rebellion, how time should be more than chronology and why his God differs from the one Richard Dawkins doesn’t believe in. But most importantly, Father Bob talks about how community could be “the miracle of the species”.
Father Bob was one of Australia’s best-loved parish priests; he appears Sunday nights on Triple J.
