Here’s what’s coming up this weekend on State of Belief Radio:
Friday, April 11th is the student-led Day of Silence, with LGBTQ students and allies expressing their concern for victims of bullying and bias. This weekend, we’ll talk to Idit Klein, Executive Director of Keshet, which is working along with a number of other faith-based organizations to call for passage of the Safe Schools Improvement Act and the Student Non-Discrimination Act.
Also, the rising tide of religion-themed major motion pictures. We’ll discuss the trend in general, and the recent Son of God in particular, with retired Episcopal Bishop – and avid film buff – Gene Robinson.
And Marilynne K. Roach, author of the book Six Women of Salem: The Untold Story of the Accused and Their Accusers in the Salem Witch Trials. Has all that much changed in human nature in the three centuries since that shameful episode in American history?
