Segment 2 -Dr. Jordan Peterson, in a recent salvo, challenges the Christian Church. -Young people are looking for more, they are looking for transcendence and we're offering them zip lines and rap music. -We've dumbed down Christianity and the group most effected, are the youth. -Jordan Peterson is shouting out to the Churches to get involved.
