if you missed it early Sunday evening the podcast is available Monday afternoon .

This Sunday's State of Belief Radio
Washington July 7 On this Sundays "State of Belief," The Interfaith Alliance Foundations show on Air America Radio, Rev. Welton Gaddy speaks with author Michelle Goldberg about the rise of Christian authoritatism in America; examines Barack Obamas speech on how faith affects his life; examines the effect of recent religious conventions on the landscape of America; and explores how faith bloggers plan to make their mark.

Blogger Velveteen Rabbi, also known as Rachel Barenblat, explains the importance of not just the blogosphere, but of religiously progressive blogs and how they can impact lives, religions and even elections. Rachel is heading up a Progressive Blog Conference with more than 30 bloggers next week to discuss the best way to spread their message.
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, Welton shows how religion and radical freedom are best friends and how the religious right is wrong wrong for America and bad for religion.

1. Thanks for posting this!
I'm still trying to figure out how the rightwing
changed Jesus from a radical liberal into a conservative.

2. michele goldberg is a good one on this subject...
and if you go to the state of belief archives (you can download or podcast old shows) there's a great episode on the RW Infiltration of protestant churches, the ird is aiming to to politically take over the leadership, as they did with the southern baptists.
there's a blog on the site too.
