What’s the Christmas season like for people with no religious background? Is it alienating? Does it share the same meaning as it does for religious people? And how does Santa Claus fit into all of it. We’ll talk to Dr. Dale McGowan. He’s the author of Parenting Beyond Belief and he’ll offer holiday advice and suggestions for the non-religious.
We’ll also hear from filmmaker Jules Naudet who, along with his brother Gedeon, has created a network television special that features a dozen of the world’s most influential religious leaders. Jules tells us what prompted him to make In God’s Name, which airs nationally on CBS.
And we’ll be handing out our year-end Intersection Awards. Who’s getting green and who’s getting red this holiday season?
State of Belief explores the intersection of religion with politics, culture, media, and activism. Through interviews with newsmakers and celebrities, reports from the field, and his own commentary, Welton shows how religion and radical freedom are best friends and how the religious right is wrong – wrong for America and bad for religion.
