The Posner Show
On The Posner Show, Sarah talks with the Rev. Welton Gaddy, who recently announced his retirement as president of the Interfaith Alliance. They discuss Welton’s history of advocating for religious diversity and religious freedom, after he witnessed first-hand the Religious Right’s takeover of the Southern Baptist Convention. Welton provides a brief history of the politicizing of religion from the “pseudo-piety” of the Clinton impeachment through the Obama administration’s refusal to change Bush-era rules on faith-based initiatives. Did Obama fear crossing “the Christian establishment” in enacting the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate? Welton argues that the recent Supreme Court ruling in favor of legislative prayer undermines authentic religion. Plus: Why Welton is scared about the state of religious freedom in America.
