This week, we’re marking the 13th anniversary of State of Belief’s first broadcast. We started this show to provide a way to engage in, and influence, the national conversation around issues of religion, government and politics. To celebrate our anniversary, we’ll re-air one of our very first interviews. In January 2006, Welton sat down with Esther Kaplan to speak her book, With God on Their Side: How Christian Fundamentalists Trampled Science, Policy and Democracy in George W. Bush’s White House. It seems like the conversation between Welton and Esther was a lifetime ago, and yet it’s clearer than ever that this nation is living every day with the consequences of not taking warnings like hers seriously enough.
