Three Democratic presidential candidates appear live on national television to talk about faith. Was it a triumph of religious conversation? Or did it cheapen faith? Democratic religion strategist Mara Vanderslice and religion blogger Chuck Currie give us their takes.
Plus, how are people of faith getting involved in the national immigration debate? Kim Bobo of Interfaith Worker Justice tells us about The New Sanctuary Movement.
And, we’ve got four stranger-than-fiction news stories about religion. It’ll be up to one of our listeners to tell us which one is not true in our Choose the News game show.
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.
