"The people who remain rooted in a religious tradition are able to psychologically endure..."

"Anger-at the root of that angst is a sorrow."

In a thought-provoking conversation, Shaykh Hamza Yusuf and Chris Hedges discuss a wide range of topics, including the deadly sin of wrath. In addition, this fascinating discourse looks closely at some of the social decay within American society today.
Please be sure to see the entire discourse entitled “The Seven Deadly Sins.” In this series, Shaykh Hamza Yusuf converses with scholars, leaders, and writers to explore one of religion’s most enduring conceptual frameworks, the Seven Deadly Sins.
These compelling conversations shed light on how the sins manifest within us, illustrate their devastating consequences on our culture, and elucidate their corresponding virtues for all of us who struggle with sin.
