This weekend on State of Belief Radio – Washington Post writer and commentator E. J. Dionne. His new book is Our Divided Political Heart: the Battle for the American Idea in an Age of Discontent. We’ll get insights on the conflicts that overwhelm our politics and society today, as well as some thoughts on the current “religious liberty” lawsuits brought by Catholic institutions against the Obama administration.
When Scott Walker held onto his seat as governor of Wisconsin in the face of a widely-publicized recall election, many said it was a bad sign for Barack Obama. We’ll analyze that and other campaign news with George Washington University’s Greg Lebel.
And Welton will talk to Dr. G. Pearson Cross, head of the Political Science Department at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. They’ll take a look at the beginning of the end of public education in Louisiana thanks to a just-signed voucher program that funnels billions of dollars to private schools – many questionable, many intensely religious – the broadest such program in the country.
That’s all coming up – this weekend on State of Belief! Click here for ways to listen.
