When Satire Crosses the Line

From Odyssey Networks’ Faith on the Record series: This week, the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo published its first edition since the killings at their offices last week.

Odyssey Networks tells the stories of faith in action changing the world for the better. Their stories explore a wide range of issues including peace, tolerance, social justice and the environment.
