I have the privilege of becoming a regular on the blog talk radio program at www.goddiscussion.com and tomorrow night’s show is going to be an exceptional one! Here is an excerpt from the release posted at their site…
“At God Discussion, we believe that all people should be free to believe or not believe, and not be judged for the conclusions they reach. We strongly oppose the notion that a particular religious group should force its views on people who do not adhere to its dogma. A person’s spirituality or understanding is his or her own private affair.
We don’t have to sit by helplessly and watch the freedoms that have made America’s faith-based and secular communities flourish. And in this special edition of the God Discussion show, we’re going to talk with some of the movers and shakers in our society who offer information and tools that will empower you, as a parent, as a voter, as a rational thinker.
This issue is important because the textbooks published by the State of Texas could very well be the standard study aids purchased by schools in about two dozen other states. That means that children throughout the nation might be taught that the separation of church and state is liberal bias that is “not in the Constitution.” The publishers say that with printing technology these days, they can easily customize textbooks. Nonetheless, many of us are concerned about the future of social studies in America. In fact, a legislator in California introduced a bill that would prohibit the use of the Texas curriculum in California schools.”
We welcome everyone to tune in. The line-up of guests reflect a very interesting array of perspectives on the Christian extremism in America. One of the guests, Chris Rodda is a fellow researcher that I am grateful to converse with and vent to from time to time. There are 5 trusted sources that I share with and Chris is definitely the expert on Christian Dominionism in education and their relentless attacks on re-writing our history. She has personally confronted David Barton and has been the result of his dismissive smears against her.
God Discussion is skyrocketing as one of the most read web sites who presents all sides of the diverse population here in America. I will be putting their RSS feed on my sidebar to make them readily accessible. In the process of immersing myself in this book project I simply have not been able to post as frequently as I would like to. I will endeavor to get a post up as often as I can, and I will also be welcoming contributions by other writers as well. I apologize for the disruption but the work I am doing on this book will be well worth it.
Please tune in tomorrow, May 27th at 7:00pm Pacific Standard Time. Many heartfelt thank yous to the host, Deborah, for all the work she does to make these shows happen!
