America is no longer a majority white Christian nation. This week on State of Belief, Interfaith Alliance’s radio show and podcast, we grapple with what that means for the nation. Our host Rev. Welton Gaddy will be joined by Dr. Robert Jones, author of the consequential new book, “The End of White Christian America.”
Jones, who heads the Public Religion Research Institute, is an expert on the changing demographics of the United States. He will discuss the impact of these changes, both on our culture and politics, and what to expect in the coming years.
Welton will also speak with Rabbi Jack Moline, president of Interfaith Alliance, about the critical need to heal the many divides in our nation. They will discuss how we can, and must, respond to recent tragedies with a committed and unrelenting search for common ground.
Finally, we’ll discuss the latest political developments with Greg Lebel, Assistant Professor of Political Management at George Washington University. Primary season is over, and the parties are busy hammering out their platforms. Find out where we go from here.
Well, we didn’t get credentials from the Republican National Committee to cover the GOP Convention in Cleveland. Too bad… We had plans to have the Rev. Welton Gaddy, host of State of Belief Radio and President Emeritus of Interfaith Alliance rush the convention stage on Sunday for an impromptu comedy routine… (instead, we had to leave those shenanigans to Stephen Colbert.)
But we are providing daily coverage of the convention with guests from both sides of the aisle. And we will be on the ground in Philadelphia for the Democratic National Convention next week. Stay tuned!
