Here’s what’s coming up this weekend on State of Belief Radio –
“Rising Inequality, Doubts About the Future” – the 2014 American Values Survey is out from the Public Religion Research Institute. We’ll dig into what it tells us about ourselves – and how that might resonate at the ballot box next month – with PRRI CEO Dr. Robert P. Jones.
Also, the anti-gay far-right brings its so-called “pro-family” agenda to the United Nations. Philosopher and writer Austin Dacey has a disturbing report about the “Declaration on the Rights of Children and Their Families.” Dr. Dacey is the author of a Religion Dispatches article on this initiative titled At the UN, Conservative Christian Agenda Cloaked in Human Rights Language.
Meanwhile, a young American Evangelical is helping train fellow Christians to teach acceptance of LGBT persons in their congregations, with a conference next month in Washington, DC. We’ll talk with Reformation Project founder Matthew Vines. Early registration for the Regional Training Conference on November 6-8 closes on October 7th.
