This weekend on State of Belief, what role did Jews play in the discovery of the New World? Author Ed Kritzler shares stories from his book, Jewish Pirates of the Caribbean: How a Generation of Swashbuckling Jews Carved Out an Empire in the New World in Their Quest for Treasure, Religious Freedom–and Revenge. Plus, Bruce Prescott from Mainstream Oklahoma Baptists fills Welton in on the latest activities of the Religious Right in his state and in honor of Passover, we visit a Seder dedicated to hunger awareness.
The Child Nutrition Seder is a project of the Jewish Council for Public Affairs and Mazon: A Jewish Response to Hunger. More information is available here.
And don’t miss Welton’s commentary on the good, the bad, and the ugly of healthcare reform.
Religion and radio done differently – this weekend on State of Belief.
