For All Saints Day, David Gornoski interviews Jason Jones, a film producer, author, activist and Catholic human rights worker. As fellow students of Rene Girard, they explore the foundational principles of Catholic social teaching, social justice victimism, how the unborn child is the ultimate scapegoat in the West, and how loving our neighbor can transform society while costing us dearly as we become scapegoats by proximity of society’s victims.
For the past 25+ years, Jason Jones has worked to defend the most vulnerable — from the homeless on the streets of Los Angeles to persecuted Christians in Africa, from women in crisis pregnancies to victims of “honor killing” in Iran. He is the founder of Serviam USA, a group dedicated to advancing Catholic social teaching to the general public. Learn more about Serviam here.
