This weekend on State of Belief, how do people of faith feel about immigration? A leading pollster and a representative from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops discuss the religious case for a humane approach to this controversial issue. Plus, the Hindu American Foundation weighs in on what they’ve called the theft of yoga and we’ve got a look at some of the week’s top religion stories with ReligionDispatches’ Peter Laarman.
Don’t miss Welton’s own thoughts on religious freedom and the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy.
