Washington, D.C. – On this Sunday’s “State of Belief,” The Interfaith Alliance Foundation’s show on Air America Radio, Rev. Dr. C. Welton Gaddy welcomes former Maryland Lt. Governor Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, who has written a new book, Failing America’s Faithful: How Today’s Churches are Mixing God with Politics and Losing Their Way. Townsend tells Rev. Gaddy the Catholic Church is too narrowly focused on issues of sexuality, and that Church needs to reclaim its mantra of supporting social justice issues. Also, the general counsel of the Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Liberty, Holly Hollman talks to Rev. Gaddy about the recent Supreme Court hearing on the president’s faith-based initiatives.
Interfaith Alliance celebrates religious freedom by championing individual rights, promoting policies that protect both religion and democracy, and uniting diverse voices to challenge extremism. Founded in 1994, Interfaith Alliance brings together members from 75 faith traditions as well as those without a faith tradition to protect faith and freedom.
