PBS To Air Three-Part Documentary Series on the Religiously Unaffiliated

PBS’ Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly partnered up with the Pew Research Center’s Forum on Religion & Public Life to bring us that survey everyone was talking about today.

They are going to be airing a three-part mini-series on the “The Rise of the Religiously Unaffiliated” and a preview is now available online. Lots of faces in the clip should be familiar to readers of this site!

The first segment, None of the Above: Who Are They, will begin airing on public television stations nationwide on October 12, 2012. It provides an overview of who these religiously unaffiliated people are and what they believe. The story will be reported by R&E Host Bob Abernethy and produced by Marcia Henning.

The second segment, None of the Above: Political Implications, which begins airing on October 19, 2012, focuses on how the growing number of religiously unaffiliated citizens could affect elections and the role of religion in politics. The segment will be reported by R&E Managing Editor Kim Lawton and produced by Patti Jette Hanley.

The third segment None of the Above: Religious Implications, which begins airing October 26, 2012, looks at the possible influence of this trend on religious congregations and institutions. This segment will be reported by R&E Contributing Correspondent Deborah Potter and produced by Susan Goldstein.

No wonder Mitt Romney wants to cut funding to PBS.
