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 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.
