I think one of the reasons that Welton is so effective… is because, he’s sort of a stealth figure…  In the sense that he’s a Baptist minister, he’s from Monroe, Louisiana, he has that beautiful accent, and that minister’s voice, and he’s been active in faith communities his entire life. Talking about the separation of Church and State in this country has become such a…  Not only a heated topic, but almost a tawdry topic. It’s a topic in which, after your first few sentences, you get to the epithets.  You can’t do that if Welton is part of the conversation. – Rachel Maddow

I just discovered this program a couple weeks ago on wcpt chicago and listened to few podcasts on the website, and I’m impressed. I rarely find people inteligent and open minded enough to talk about these kind of subjects and finding a radio show that does makes me so happy. Finally something really interesting to listen to in the weekends! Keep the good work.- Ashe, DeKalb, IL

WHAT IS STATE OF BELIEF RADIO? Every week, State of Belief Radio delivers an hour of thoughtful interviews with newsmakers, political and religious leaders, leading journalists and other prominent figures. We’re obsessed with politics, sure; but our area of focus and expertise is the erosion of the wall of separation between Church and State. Religion is in the headlines every day now; we bring together the experts that can explain what is happening, how it affects believers and non-believers alike; and what the long-term effects on our society are likely to be.

  • Religion in political campaigns – is his Mormon faith holding Mitt Romney Back? Is a Dominionist orientation going to help or hurt Rick Perry and Michelle Bachmann? Is Barack Obama a stealth Muslim? Are Evangelical Christian organizers going to succeed at registering five million new conservative voters for 2012 – enough to swing the vote in many states?
  • Religion in government – what are the moral and ethical issues involved in the nation’s budget battles? What’s really driving funding cuts for organizations like Planned Parenthood? Is Roe v. Wade being made irrelevant by religion-driven anti-abortion legislation at the state level? What about marriage equality?
  • Religion around the world – whether it’s the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, emerging forces in Egypt and other “Arab Spring” nations, attacks on religious groups in various parts of the globe, or religiously-motivated terrorism – these are the stories that people are talking about, and need help in understanding.
With deep knowledge, warm humor, and a seemingly endless reserve of empathy, Rev. Gaddy leads each week’s show in exploring the often-misunderstood events that are shaping our world and our lives every day. By the time he ends each show with his trademark “You all take care of each other,” listeners have a clearer understanding of why they should – and some new ideas on how they can.

Rev. Gaddy, I would like to sincerely thank you for all that you do with your program. I admire what you are doing quite a bit. A local station in my area intends to start running a program called XXXXXXX. This program is hosted by a minister. The hosts of the local morning show that runs on this station interviewed him recently and he made a number of shockingly hateful statements about Muslims some of them advocating rather violent behavior.  I find it extremely disturbing that this type of speech is being broadcast on one of the local stations in my area. I am tired of hate coming out of the mouths of those who claim to represent Christ. I would love it if that station would broadcast “State of Belief” rather than that hateful program, but I think that’s about as likely as icicles in hell. -Jason, West Columbia, SC

Traditional mainstream Christian religion has lost so many supporters. Its leaders have lost the courage of their original hero, who routed the money changers etc. Representative Keith Ellison said this: “In Washington what I’ve heard from a lot of people is that, ‘oh, well, if the movement turns violent, maybe it would be wise not to be connected to it.’ I’m like, you know, lets get rid of that super play-it-safe cowardly chicken style. Lets lead with what we believe for a change, and say these people are absolutely right to get out there and express their outrage with these conditions.” I hope that you will do the same. – Abbie, Harborside, ME

Rev. Gaddy- I know you will be happy to hear I am starting an adult Sunday school class using segments of your broadcast as a starting point for discussion.  After 4 years of graduate school, I finally have the energy to initiate a class that works for me; No books to read, no guilt for not being prepared. It has sparked quite a bit of interest in the church, and I can’t wait to share you with my friends! Thank you for all you do. – Wendy, Albuquerque, NM

Hi Rev, You’d be proud of me: I listen, share your excellent ideas and support the Interface Alliance.  I listen to the podcasts every week (and I do miss Air America). Best Wishes, Barry, Kansas City, MO

State of Belief Radio isn’t old-school Sunday morning “God Squad.” State of Belief Radio isn’t bible-thumping fire-and-brimstone, and it isn’t bomb-throwing radical rhetoric. State of Belief Radio is thoughtful but passionate dialogue, analysis and insights. It answers some of the questions being asked by the throngs who have taken to the streets in the “Occupy” movement, and by their millions of supporters.  State of Belief is Religion and Radio – done differently.
