On this week’s show, host Welton Gaddy is joined by Ted Sorensen, a personal advisor and speechwriter for President John F. Kennedy. He is the author of a new book, Counselor: A Life At the Edge of History. Ted shares his insight into religion in the Kennedy White House and his personal experience helping to draft Kennedy’s now famous speech on Catholicism and the separation of church and state.
Also, Greg White of the Pew Center on Religion & Public Life talks about a new survey on the religious landscape in America…
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.
