Here’s what’s coming up this weekend on State of Belief Radio –
The extremist religious right is firing on all cylinders… And that doesn’t bode well for the American way of life.
We’ll talk with activist Zack Kopplin, who’s been investigating overt intimidation of students in our public schools by proselytizing faculty. His disturbing Slate.com article is headlined Religious Rants in the Classroom.
Meanwhile, will the right’s scare tactics over culture-war issues bring out the vote next November? We’ll hear from Iowa political science professor Dennis Goldford.
Welton also has some thoughts to share about a particularly disturbing anti-gay gathering in Iowa last weekend that attracted several presidential candidates.
And on a more positive note, we’ll talk about recent progress on post-incarceration issues with John Santa of the Malta Justice Initiative.
