State of Belief was at the Take Back America conference in Washington, DC, this past week. We have highlights from the event, including comments from the editor of The Nation, Katrina vanden Heuvel, filmmaker Robert Greenwald, and Secular Coalition for America director Lori Lipman Brown.
Also at the conference, Welton’s got to sit down with Democratic Presidential Candidate Mike Gravel. He gives us his thoughts on the role of religion in the race for the White House.
Plus, in our Intersection Awards, we’ve got a red light to President Bush, for his veto of a stem-cell research bill; another one to Mitt Romney, for pandering to the Religious Right with his new “family home movie;” and a green light to the U.S. Senate for the passing the reauthorization of the Head Start early education programwithout a provision that allows religious discrimination.
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.
