Attorney General Sessions is known for regularly siding with adherents of a particular brand of religion over the rest of us, making a de facto – and unconstitutional – hierarchy of belief. On Wednesday, Sessions announced the establishment of a Religious Freedom Task Force, adding, “A dangerous movement, undetected by many, is now challenging and eroding our great tradition of religious freedom. It must be confronted and defeated.” Critics have pointed out that the task force will clearly be used to promote Sessions’ personal brand of Christian nationalism, at the expense of other religious practices and personal value systems treasured by Americans. State of Belief host Rev. Welton Gaddy will speak with Mark Dann, director of Governmental Affairs at the Secular Coalition for America.
