From Rwanda’s Dark Past to America’s Uncertain Future

In today’s episode of The Altar and the Eagle, we take a somber look back at the Rwandan Genocide—a tragic event that claimed around 800,000 lives due to deep-seated ethnic tensions. We examine the destructive role of propaganda and how media fueled a massacre that unfolded with frightening speed and brutality. We discuss the shocking complicity and, in rare cases, the courageous resistance of religious institutions. Finally, we juxtapose the Rwandan crisis with today’s polarized America—wondering whether a history so grim could repeat on different soil. Join us for this thought-provoking discussion here on The Altar and the Eagle.
