Atlanta,   August 3 – On this Sunday’s “State of Belief,” The Interfaith Alliance Foundation’s show on Air America Radio, Rev. Welton Gaddy comes to you from Atlanta, Georgia, where he discusses civil rights in the South and the suppression of religious liberties in Cuba. 


Welton first speaks with Reverend Raphael Warnock, Pastor of Historic Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, about the power of local grassroots groups in the current movement for civil rights.  Warnock bemoans the current “unholy alliance between those who say they speak on behalf of God and those who have money,” alongside the “deafening silence about the issues Martin Luther King would have preached about.”


Dr. Stan Hastey also joins Welton in speaking on the suppression of religious liberties experienced in Cuba and the Treasury Department’s recent refusal to renew the Alliance of Baptists’ license to travel there. Plus, don’t miss Kansas versus Kentucky, South Dakota, and how Jesus would vote in Ohio.

Interfaith Alliance is a network of people of diverse faiths and beliefs from across the country working together to build a resilient democracy and fulfill America’s promise of religious freedom and civil rights not just for some, but for all. We mobilize powerful coalitions to challenge Christian nationalism and religious extremism, while fostering a better understanding of the healthy boundaries between religion and government. We advocate at all levels of government for an equitable and just America where the freedoms of belief and religious practice are protected, and where all persons are treated with dignity and have the opportunity to thrive.
