The best-seller lists would have you believe there’s a war between atheists and believers in America. Christopher Hitchens, Sam Harris, and Richard Dawkins have all hit it big with books that show varying degrees of hostility toward religion. But is issue as divisive as we’re led to believe?

We’ll dispell some of the myths about “atheism vs. religion” with help from Nica Lalli, author of Nothing: Something to Believe In, and Lynn Garrett, religion editor for Publisher’s Weekly.

Plus, Roger Hickey, co-director of the Campaign for Americia’s future will give us a preview of the Take Back America Conference.

And, in our Your Voice segment, a dinner party where the faith traditions are as diverse as the menu.

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.
