We devote the rest of this week’s best-of State of Belief program to a critically important panel discussion Welton hosted in 2006. While we regularly cover the political religious right takeover of our politics and our government, the fact that a concerted, long-term attempt to infiltrate and fundamentally alter the workings of many leading mainstream denominations in this country is harder to quantify – and tricky to discuss. Welton brought together three faith leaders who spoke articulately to this campaign, which continues to this day: The Rev. Dr. Bruce Prescott, the late Rev. Dr. Andrew Weaver, and the Rev. Dr. John Dorhauer, who currently serves as ninth General Minister and President of the United Church of Christ.
