A “Fortnight of Facts”
There’s been a lot of attention paid to the U.S. Council of Catholic Bishops’ “Fortnight for Freedom” – the bishops’ two-week campaign culminating on July 4th to raise the issue of alleged threats to religious liberty. Evangelical Christians have jumped aboard with “Two Weeks for Freedom.” Emotions are running high on both sides of these efforts. But what’s been missing from all the rhetoric? Some good ol’ fashioned facts. Dr. Robert P. Jones, CEO of Public Religion Research Institute, joins Welton this week to provide a good snapshot of what Americans are really thinking about the state of religious liberty in this country.
