E.J. Dionne has written a new book that outlines how the religious and political winds in this country are changing. We’ll get his forecast for this fall’s election, and tell us why the Pope’s upcoming visit is so significant. Also…we’ll preview “The Lord’s Bootcamp” which trains evangelical teenagers to become Christian missionaries.
Plus… we’ll talk to a rabbi who supports same-sex unions though the state she lives in refuses to recognize them. She has decided to lodge a unique kind of protest – she is refusing to sign marriage licenses for any marriages she performs.
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.
