December 12-13, 2009

This weekend on State of Belief, the Supreme Court recently decided to take up a case that pits a Christian student organization against a college’s anti-discrimination policy.  Los Angeles Times correspondent David Savage gives Welton the details of the case.  Plus, Rabbi Brad Hirschfield on the “war on Christmas”.

Rabbi Hirschfield is the author of You Don’t Have to Be Wrong For Me To Be Right, and he writes the Washington Post On Faith column, “For God’s Sake: The Uses and Abuses of Religion in Politics and Culture”.

And, novelist Mary Gordon tells Welton what she learned when she sat down and read the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.  Her new book is called Reading Jesus: A Writer’s Encounters With the Gospels.

Don’t miss Welton’s thoughts on faith groups at the United Nations climate change summit in Denmark.
