Earlier this week, a handful of Christian scholars and leaders convened in Washington, D.C. to announce their united efforts to reclaim the word “Evangelical”… The authors of the Manifesto say the true meaning of Evangelicalism has been obscured by those who would mix politics and faith.

And, don’t miss this week’s intersection awards…with dubious honors for Indiana’s new voter ID law and of course, the Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins…

State of Belief explores the intersection of religion with politics, culture, media, and activism. Through interviews with newsmakers and celebrities, reports from the field, and his own commentary, Welton shows how religion and radical freedom are best friends and how the religious right is wrong – wrong for America and bad for religion.
