Interfaith Voices is the nation’s leading religion news magazine on public radio. Through honest interviews and reporting each week, Maureen Fiedler probes the many ways that religion informs our politics and culture. In so doing, Interfaith Voices has grown to become an independent resource for religious and secular listeners on 76 stations nationwide.
Today, we offer you a weekly analysis of the big headlines alongside lesser-told stories – those of African-American Mormons and atheists in the military, evangelical environmentalists and Muslim feminists. Through these stories, a rough sketch of our country’s religious landscape begins to emerge. It’s a marketplace of beliefs and ideas too complex for sound bites, and too important to ignore. We believe interreligious understanding is more than hollow jargon. It is integral to being informed and engaged citizens in the most religiously diverse country on earth. Polite society might try to avoid talking about religion and politics, but Interfaith Voices believes that we must talk about both – together.
