On the next State of Belief Radio – the Pope says even Atheists go to heaven. A few days later, a Vatican spokesman says, no, they don’t. Who does one believe? Kevin Eckstrom, Editor-in-chief of Religion News Service, will straighten all this out when he joins us on this week’s show.
Also, the role of organized religion in the surge in anti-gay violence in New York City. New York preacher and activist Pastor Joseph Tolton will be with us to take a closer look.
And Imam Ahmet Atlig, who recently joined other Muslim leaders for a historic trip to pray at Holocaust sites – and to issue an unambiguous condemnation of anti-semitism.
That’s all coming up this weekend on State of Belief! Here’s how to listen.
