Kathleen Kennedy Townsend Reclaims Catholic Faith
Daughter of RFK Discusses New Book
Washington, D.C. – On this Sunday’s “State of Belief,” The Interfaith Alliance Foundation’s show on Air America Radio, Rev. Dr. C. Welton Gaddy welcomes former Maryland Lt. Governor Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, who has written a new book, Failing America’s Faithful: How Today’s Churches are Mixing God with Politics and Losing Their Way. Townsend tells Rev. Gaddy the Catholic Church is too narrowly focused on issues of sexuality, and that Church needs to reclaim its mantra of supporting social justice issues. Also, the general counsel of the Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Liberty, Holly Hollman talks to Rev. Gaddy about the recent Supreme Court hearing on the president’s faith-based initiatives.
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.
