State of Belief - Oct 24th - 2015

Utah Hosts Two Different Global Gatherings On this episode of State of Belief, Interfaith Alliance’s weekly radio show and podcast, Rev. Welton Gaddy takes a closer look at two global gatherings taking place in Salt Lake City, Utah over a span of just two weeks. Last weekend, 10,000 representatives of 50 different faith traditions travelled to the Parliament of the World’s Religions in Salt Lake City for a global discussion on interfaith initiatives. This weekend, the World Congress of Families will also hold a global gathering in Salt Lake City, but instead will be meeting to promote an exclusive, discriminatory vision of religion. Eric Ethington of Political Research Associates join us to address how PRA works to expose the ways in which the religious right, including the World Congress of Families, regularly undermines civil society and human rights. Later, Rev. Mark Luens, Board Chair of Interfaith Alliance of Long Island, New York, will speak about his experience at the Parli...

Pope Francis Goes To WashingtonFrom Pope Francis’ first visit to the U.S. to Ben Carson’s comments about American Muslims, the celebration of Eid al Adha to the observance of Yom Kippur – this was the type of week that us interfaith junkies live for.

Labor Day and Looking BackThis week on State of Belief, Interfaith Alliance’s weekly radio show and podcast, Rev. Welton Gaddy sits down with several special guests to talk about the role of faith in political and public life. We’ll hear from Interfaith Alliance Executive Director Rabbi Jack Moline about the potential dangers of mixing government and religion for political benefit. On a warmer note, a Rabbi and former President Carter staffer shares how 39’s faith helped – and continues to help – him through troubles and tough times. Finally, in the spirit of the holiday (and time off work!) we’ll hear two excerpts from Labor Day broadcasts of years past, and spend some time reflecting on how the world has changed – or not– in the years since those segments first aired. The Religiosity of Politics and the Politicization of Religion At the end of September, Pope Francis will travel to the United States, a trip that features a stop in Washington, D.C. where he will address a j...

The Struggle for Religious Freedom Goes SouthFrom the Deep South to Southern Europe, struggles for religious freedom are sending ripples across our communities. This week on State of Belief, Interfaith Alliance’s weekly radio show and podcast, Rev. Welton Gaddy takes a look at three different conflicts facing religious communities. We’ll hear about Texas Freedom Network’s fight to keep Christian education out of public schools. We’ll check in with our friend Suhag Shukla at the Hindu American Foundation on the latest debate about adding a Hindu monument to the Ten Commandments monument at the Arkansas State House. And Catherine Orsborne, director of the Shoulder to Shoulder campaign, will tell us about how anti-Muslim bigotry stops us from helping those refugees most in need.

August 22, 2015 – Remembering Julian Bond, Interpreting Donald Trump and Exposing Christian ReconstructionistsDonald Trump may not seem share a lot in common with the average preacher (at least not our host Welton Gaddy), but both could end up shaping the political landscape in 2016. This week on State of Belief, our host Rev. Welton Gaddy, examines the Trump phenomenon with Prof. George Lakoff, one of America’s leading linguists. But Trump isn’t the only giant looming over our political scene, Dr. Julie Ingersoll joins us to discuss the work of Christian Reconstructionists to put 1,000 fundamentalist pastors on the ballot next November. But first, Welton invites Rev. Dr. Amos T. Brown to help us remember the life and mourn the loss of longtime civil rights champion Julian Bond. Remembering a Titan of Civil Rights and Religious Freedom Last Saturday we said goodbye to Julian Bond, the former president of the NAACP, co-founder of the Southern Poverty Law Center, and a tireless cha...

Race, Religion and Reproductive Rights on the 2016 Campaign TrailAs the 2016 elections heat up across the country, things are heating up on State of Belief, Interfaith Alliance’s weekly radio show and podcast, as well (and not just because it’s 104 degrees in Welton’s home town of Monroe, LA).

Veteran religion journalist Kim Lawton of PBS Religion & Ethics Newsweekly shares her observations from the 2016 campaign trail. And theologian Rev. Dr. Susan Brooks Thistlethwaite comes back to talk to us about the #BlackLivesMatter movement and what it means for America’s religious and political landscape. Whatever Happened to Hobby Lobby?
