CBS will broadcast an interfaith religious special to examine the role and responsibility of religion in the struggle against terrorism. Titled, “Responding to Tragedy: Religion in a Time of Terror,” the program will be broadcast Sunday at 8 a.m. (ET). In the program, a panel will discuss how religion affects the fight against terrorism and how it should affect the action of nations. Panelists will include Reverend Bob Edgar, a former congressman and now the general secretary of the National Council of Churches of Christ, Rabbi James Rudin, senior interreligious advisor of the American Jewish Committee and a former military chaplain, Reverend Thomas Reese, editor-in-chief of America, the Jesuit Catholic weekly; Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf of the Al Farah Mosque in New York, founder of the American Sufi Muslim Association; Elaine Pagels, the Harrington Spear Paine Professor of Religion at Princeton University; and Nicholas Vreeland, a Buddhist monk who is director of The Tibet Center in New York and editor of An Open Heart, the teachings of the Dalai Lama. The program will be staged at the headquarters of the American Bible Society in New York and intends to explore the various moral and ethical issues surrounding the attack, the national and international response and the varied views of a just war.
