This American strife

News & Politics
This American Life, the best, most consistently listenable radio show for a decade recently tackled the dicey Church/state issue. "One segment provides a chilling listing of legislation proposed by the religious right which would further impose their religious views upon everyone," writes Ron Chusid. "Another...looks at the history of the idea of separation of church and state and the dishonest revisionist history being distributed by right wing groups such as Wallbuilders...[and] those who are sick of the religious right's claim to superior moral values will be interested in the story by Julia Sweeney. From the description of the show, 'Julia's faith began to crack after reading Biblical passages like the one pictured here, of Abraham about to cut the throat of his beloved son, Isaac.'"
