+Gene and +Jane on State of Belief

Tune in this weekend to Interfaith Alliance's weekly radio show and podcast State of Belief for a special edition featuring Bishop Gene Robinson and Bishop Jane Holmes Dixon for the full show.

Bishop Gene Robinson of New Hampshire is the first openly gay man ordained in the Episcopal Church. He joins Rev. Gaddy to talk about the implications of the Church's decisions to lift a moratorium on ordaining gay clergy and to allow bishops to bless same-gender unions.

Bishop Jane Holmes Dixon, the second woman to be ordained as a bishop in the Episcopal Church joins the conversation to talk about the role of politics and outside forces in the Church's decision, how this controversy reflects and relates to the push for equal rights in society and the similarities between the current debate and the debate held previously on the ordination of women.

The podcast of this week's show includes 15 additional minutes of Rev. Gaddy's conversation with Bishops Robinson and Dixon not heard on the Air America broadcast.

This week's show is available online now--you can also check to see when it airs on an Air America station near you.
