June 30, 2015 – Faith & Society: Founding Fathers and Mothers
Season 7, Episode 26
With Independence Day just around the corner, on this installment of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we’ll discuss faith and our founding fathers and mothers. They were the architects of a new nation, and as one of our greatest leaders, President Abraham Lincoln, once said, it as a nation “conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all ‘people’ are created equal.” What role does religion play in regard to the thinking and philosophies of our founding fathers and mothers? Some have suggested that the United States is a Christian nation. Is that accurate based on what our founders believed and intended? What role should religion play in both the American reality and also within nation-states? Listen now! There may be fireworks on this Fourth of July edition of Friends Talking Faith.
