Why do politicians spend so much time talking about religion? Are they pandering or is there a psychological explanation? Dr. Justin Frank, the psychiatrist who put Bush on the Couch, analyzes the relationship between religion and politics.
Plus, Michael Newdow, the man who put the words “under God” on trial, tells us why he’s back in court.
And in our Faith on Film segment, we’ll ask What Would Jesus Buy? Helping us answer that question is the subject of this new documentary, our friend Reverend Billy of the Church of Stop Shopping.
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.
