Topics: Parsing Pres. Obama’s Notre Dame Speech;Atheist Sunday School”: What’s Wrong with Hymns

The remarks of Pres. Barack Obama in his May 17 speech to Notre Dame, including many deferential religious references and messages, will be parsed. And for something completely different, the hosts will do an eye-opening analysis of standard Christian hymns, such as “There Is a Foundation Filled with Blood,” which reveal why the more one goes to church, the more likely one is to support torture. They will also look at hawkish hymns which feed the intrusion of evangelical Christianity into the U.S. military.”
