This weekend on State of Belief Radio – Dr. Warren Throckmorton on the pernicious attempts of some on the far right to rewrite American history and redefine this as a conservative Christian nation. He recently rebutted some of revisionist historian David Barton’s most extremist claims in a Salon.com article, as well as in a new book, co-written with Michael Coulter, titled: Getting Jefferson Right: Fact Checking Claims about Our Third President.
Also, you’ll meet the founder of a new website dedicated to highlighting the Muslim Heroes around us. Saud Inam will tell us about his project, which can be found, appropriately enough, at www.muslimheroes.org
And Welton will talk to Tom Drake-Brockman, author of the new book Christian Humanism, in which he makes the argument that the greatest threat to the message of Jesus is the way organized religion expresses it today.
