Godless America

Listen to this story... 

This American Life, June 3, 2005 · "At a time when House Majority Leader Tom Delay calls for enacting a 'Biblical world view' in government, when Christians are asserting their ideals in the selection of judges, in public school science classes and elsewhere, This American Life spends an hour trying to remember why anyone liked the separation of church and state in the first place." (Thanks to WBEZ and PRI, who produce the show.)

Joyce, who listens to KQED in Northern California.

"This [story], in particular Julia Sweeney's "Letting Go of God," stopped my entire family. I was catching a show I'd missed on the computer while preparing dinner, and as the rest of the family came in, each one became involved with the show. We couldn't turn it off while we ate. Even when dinner was finished, all of us just sat around the table without moving, listening to Julia Sweeney's compelling tale. Even my 16-year-old son was captivated!"
