Riots in Britain and Religious Intolerance {LISTEN} HTMH #22

Sometimes we simply have no choice but to tackle the tough issues — even if it means things will get ugly.

Which is why, in episode 22 of Hey! That’s My Hummus! We discuss the recent violence and chaos which has troubled Great Britain over the past week. The riots sparked by the shooting death of a citizen by law enforcement has spiraled into something much more catastrophic, and we try to determine why and how something like this could happen. Our thoughts are with those affected on the other side of the Atlantic.

We also delve into a recent report by the Pew Research Center’s Forum on Religion in Public Life titled Rising Restrictions on Religion, which talks about religious tolerance (and intolerance) in the countries around the world. Are nations becoming more restrictive about religion? Are they becoming more accepting?

But perhaps the toughest controversy of all is addressed: was KITT from Knight Rider voiced by the guy who played Mr. Belvedere?

    I’m a little freaked out by how quickly Mike knew the name of the actor who played Mr. Belvedere. I mean, I knew immediately that Faiqa was wrong (ha!) about KIT’s voice. Knew that was William Daniels. But pulling Mr. Belvedere out of the air? Impressive!
