Father Bob Maguire: Building a Civil Society Despite Elections

Listen to 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”.
