Houses of worship are our focus this week on State of Belief. What happened to the California church that was investigated over an anti-war sermon? The rector of All Saints Episcopal Church, Rev. Ed Bacon, joins us.
Plus, this weekend is the 100th birthday of Washington National Cathedral. Cathedral dean, the Very Reverend Samuel Lloyd, tells us why this house of worship has been deemed “the national house of prayer.”
The country’s largest Hindu temple has opened in a small Atlanta suburb. Executive Director of the Hindu American Foundation, Ishani Chowdhury, talks bout its significance. She’ll also tell us about legislation in Congress that is important to the nation’s Hindus.
And, we’ve got something to say to Congressman Peter King (R-NY) regarding his gaffe about mosques.
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.
