Noah Filipiak interviews Shane Claiborne about how to engage churches in helping the poor, activism and justice issues. They talk about celebrityism within popular Christianity, about what can be done to stop the death penalty (Shane’s latest book is Executing Grace: How the Death Penalty Killed Jesus and Why It’s Killing Us), and about how to be an ordinary radical as both a single person and as a married person (and what to do if one spouse is moved toward this and the other isn’t).

Noah Filipiak says
David, I get a sense that you have a preconceived judgment about me and/or about people who advocate for the poor, racial justice, etc. — like a political lens that if one is for the poor they must also be pro-choice, or something along those lines. Just because a person advocates for one issue doesn’t mean they have to advocate for them all simultaneously, nor does it mean that they follow party lines. Shane Claiborne is extremely outspoken against abortion. In fact, if you read his material or listen to the interview, he talks about being pro-life from the womb to the tomb. And same goes for me, I’ve written extensively against abortion:
I don’t mean to come across strongly. I appreciate your perspective a lot, but I think you could write your comments in a way that came across as more edifying and less of a tearing down feeling.
