Walk the Talk Show with Waylon Lewis: Sister Helen Prejean of Dead Man Walking fame.

My interview with Sister Helen Prejean.

A Walk the Talk Show with Waylon Lewis on location special at Naropa University.

The nun behind the best-selling Dead Man Walking best-selling book and movie (in which she was played by Susan Sarandon) offers a Christianity that’s about mercy, compassion, forgiveness, humor—a Christianity that simultaneously transcends and directly engages politics. Because life’s too short, and precious, for judgment or class welfare!

“It’s all about waking up,” Sister Helen says. Amen to that!

… part II: Mr. Sharp overstates his case by asserting that "Had rapist/murderer Matthew Poncelet not been properly sentenced to death by the civil authority, he would not have met Sister Prejean, he would not have received spiritual instruction, he would not have taken responsibility for his crimes and he would not have reconciled with God." While Poncelt might not have met Prejean if he hadn't been on death row, how could Sharp possibly assert that that would be the only way for Poncelt to have had spiritual instruction or to have come to God?"

Talk about creating Fiction.
