Here’s what’s coming up this weekend on State of Belief Radio –
The Nuns on the Bus ride again! After speaking from the last Democratic National Convention stage, Sister Simone Campbell, executive director of the NETWORK Lobby, will be far from that spotlight this time around. We’ll ask her about the message she has for American voters: “Mend the Gap.”
Also, is Newt Gingrich the dream Veep for Christian Nationalists? Peter Montgomery says “yes” in a recent column for rightwingwatch.org, Why Newt Gingrich is Christian Nationalists’ Dream Veep, and he’ll be with us to explain why.
And remembering the great Elie Wiesel. We’ll talk with Dr. David Gushee, who has both studied and taught Wiesel’s work for decades. Dr. Gushee’s remembrance of the Holocaust survivor, Nobel Prize laureate and author appeared at Religion News Service under the headline, What Elie Wiesel meant to me.
