My Radio Interview About Church, State and Rick Santorum

I was interviewed for a radio show recently called State of Belief that airs on stations around the Midwest about my recent article, “Rick Santorum, Champion of the Secular Left.”

I’ll admit I was a little nervous when a religious radio show from the Beltway wanted to talk to me about my understanding of church and state, and about Rick Santorum’s role in that debate. But it actually ended up being really interesting.

Here’s what they posted on their website about it:

Many of us have watched the Republican primary campaign unfold with growing concern about the prevalence of religious language in it. And we have worried about the potential permanent damage to the separation of Church and State, as enshrined in our Constitution. However, author Christian Piatt, who we had a chance to talk to this week, argues that the overabundance of religious rhetoric may actually be good for our democracy in the long run. Be sure to listen in this week to find out why Piatt, editor of Banned Questions about the Bible and Banned Questions about Jesus, thinks Rick Santorum may turn out to be a champion of the secular left.
