Making No Apologies for Feminist Theology, Rev. Welton Gaddy, and More
March 12, 2015
Summary: Feminist theology: It's so much more than calling God 'she' or 'wind.' Two feisty theologians argue it's really a question of who gets to say. And Rev. Welton Gaddy reflects on 16 years as an interfaith rabble-rouser.
Father-Lord-Ruler-King: A Feminist Debunking March 12, 2015
We often hear about Abraham, the Biblical father of Jews, Christians and Muslims, but not so much about his wife, Sarah. We hear God described as a Lord, a King, a white-bearded father in the sky; but rarely is God called a mother, a nurturer or a woman. Two scholars, a Christian and a Jew, explain how feminist theology is calling for new words, new blessings, and new mindsets. From June 2009.

Rev. Gaddy: Sixteen Years as an Interfaith Rabble-Rouser March 12, 2015
Rev. Welton Gaddy just might be Maureen's doppelganger: he's a fierce leader in the interfaith movement who also hosts a radio show about religion every week. This week, he sits down with us to reflect on his sixteen years as president of the Interfaith Alliance, a progressive non-profit working to fight religious bigotry in American politics. He retired from his post in December.

Faith By the Numbers March 12, 2015
America is no longer a majority Protestant country, the religiously unaffiliated are now one of the largest 'religious' groups in the nation, and half of Buddhists are single. These are just a few of the blockbuster findings revealed in a huge new survey of more than 50,000 Americans, the American Values Atlas. Our favorite religion number-cruncher gives us the details.
