As we take a short summer break, we’re revisiting one of our favorite interviews from the recent past – December 2019, to be exact.
That’s when regular listeners to State of Belief, Interfaith Alliance’s weekly radio show and podcast, first heard this exclusive in-depth conversation with MSNBC host Rachel Maddow.
At the time, America had just witnessed President Trump’s latest attack on freedom of expression in the press and in faith when he lashed out against the prominent evangelical publication Christianity Today for an editorial calling for his removal from office. It was yet another frightening example of how far we’ve strayed from having the leader of our country respect and preserve some cornerstone priorities of the Founders.
These precedents did not go unnoticed by American journalists. Rev. Welton Gaddy, host of State of Belief, visited best-selling author and MSNBC Television host Rachel Maddow to discuss how our nation, public religion and journalism have all changed in just the past couple of years. They also addressed Rachel’s recent #1 bestselling book, Blowout: Corrupted Democracy, Rogue State Russia, and the Richest, Most Destructive Industry on Earth.
