Louisiana State Senator James David Cain (R-Dry Creek) calls Welton from the Senate floor to explain why he wrote legislation to post the Ten Commandments in government buildings, which led to legislators editing the Ten Commandments. Asked if there are not more important issues in Louisiana, Cain responds, âIf I have one person in this state who will read the Ten Commandments Iâve done a wonderful job.â
House Majority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) will bring the VRA to the floor of the U.S. House next week in what should be a great show of bipartisan support to extend the guaranteed rights and freedoms to all Americans. Welton says, âNo one in this democracy should ever have to fear their vote was not counted. The outcome of elections should be determined by voters, not the Supreme Court, the Federal Election Commission or anyone else.â
State of Belief explores the intersection of religion with politics, culture, media, and activism. Through interviews with newsmakers and celebrities, reports from the field, and his own commentary,Â Welton shows how religion and radical freedom are best friends and how the religious right is wrong â wrong for America and bad for religion.
