Here’s what’s coming up this weekend on State of Belief Radio –
The Rev. Robert Lee IV, a descendant of the Confederate General, who lost his congregation for publicly condemning white supremacy. You’ll hear his thoughts on conservative Christianity and racism, which he now knows far too well.
Also, Auburn Seminary’s Paul Raushenbush, who edits the Voices section of the Auburn website. We’ll take a look at the role faith communities have in challenging the latest ill-considered assault on the Affordable Care Act.
And, “the gayest bake sale ever,” a tongue-in-cheek response to the deadly serious issue of anti-LGBT bigotry in the name of religious freedom. You’ll meet Salt Lake City activist Hillary McDaniel.
