Here’s what’s coming up this weekend on State of Belief Radio, with Huffington Post Executive Religion Editor Paul Raushenbush filling in for Rev. Welton Gaddy as host:
The Vatican says “never mind” to those American nuns that had been under close supervision for what was called “radical feminism.” Sister Simone Campbell, Executive Director of NETWORK, a national Catholic social justice lobby and the original “Nun on the Bus” will explain what this means, and what’s next, as Pope Francis moves the Catholic Church away from the culture wars and towards a moral imperative for social justice.
Also, the challenges of covering the world’s religions. We’ll be joined by the Huffington Post’s Associate Religion Editor Antonia Blumberg and Senior Writer Jaweed Kaleem, to discuss producing the new project, “What it Means to be Muslim in America.”
And author and activist Rabbi Jay Michaelson. His recent writing raises the alarm about the growing alliance between Evangelical and pro-Israel Christians – and the fact that their goals are probably very different from your goals. We’ll focus on his recent article in The Forward, Don’t Be Shocked by Jewish Honor for Anti-Gay Pastor Charles Stanley.
