Doesn’t it seem like President Bush uses religious rhetoric more often than previous presidents? We’ll talk to the authors of a new book who have documented how presidents are increasingly using religion as a weapon.
Plus, we’ll look at how and why Democrats are appealing to religious voters. Amy Sullivan will join us to discuss what she calls the God Gap between the two parties.
Also, I’ll offer a Preaching to the Choir segment to put all this White House God talk into perspective.
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.
