In honor of Independence Day, State of Belief revisits some of our favorite and most patriotic interviews…. all of which celebrate the origins of religious freedom in this country and the need to protect this first freedom for all Americas. Host Welton Gaddy speaks with Newsweek’s Jon Meacham, Beliefnet’s Steve Waldman, Reverend Forrest Church and Pulitzer-prize winner Anthony Lewis. Also, tune in to hear Welton’s own wish for this year’s holiday.
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.
