Here’s what’s coming up this weekend on State of Belief Radio:
A dangerous ruling from the Supreme Court. You’ll hear analysis and comment from expert voices on the collision of religion and politics, when we’re joined by Dr. Jay Michaelson, journalist Sarah Posner and the Rev. Brian McLaren.
Jay’s written widely on the case, most recently for Reuters.
Sarah’s coverage of the Hobby Lobby case includes Hobby Lobby decision set to reignite conflict around women’s rights and Religious Leaders Press Obama for Exemption from Executive Order Barring Discrimination.
Brian published a column in On Faith headlined Q: What Did Hobby Lobby Win? A: Many More Abortions
We’ll also talk to Katherine Franke, Director of the Center for Gender & Sexuality Law at Columbia Law School. The Center has just launched the Public Rights/Private Conscience Project, bringing badly-needed legal expertise to this area of policy.
And Welton have some thoughts of his own to share about this misguided decision – the first time in history that the high court has recognized that private corporations have a religious conscience.
