Here’s what’s coming up this weekend on State of Belief Radio:
What’s next for the Westboro Baptist Church? With founder Fred Phelps, Sr. dead, we’ll get the perspective of Dr. Rebecca Barrett-Fox, a sociologist who specializes in hate group dynamics – and wrote her dissertation on Westboro.
March 22nd is World Water Day. We’ll talk to a proponent of radical giving – Ali Eastburn – who sold her wedding ring to found a water charity called “With This Ring.”
And the Hobby Lobby case comes to the Supreme Court – we’ll look at the possible far-reaching implications for religious liberty with Dr. Jay Michaelson. His recent article on the case appears in The Forward. Last year, Jay authored a report exposing the deep roots of the effort to fundamentally redefine freedom in this country titled Redefining Religious Liberty: The Covert Campaign Against Civil Liberties.
