Ep. 50: A Conversation with Religion Unplugged’s Paul Glader

Here at MinistryWatch we bring you news about Christian ministries, as well as the latest in charity and philanthropy, all designed to help us become better stewards of the resources God has entrusted to us.

Regular listeners to the program know that this month we began these “MinistryWatch Extra” episodes.  We will continue our regular Friday weekly roundup episodes.  Those are episodes I co-host with Natasha Smith.  But these MinistryWatch Extra episodes are a chance for us to “go deep,” you might say, with our editorial partners.

Today, I’m pleased to welcome back to the program Paul Glader.  Paul is the editor-in-chief at Religion Unplugged and the director of the journalism program at The King’s College in New York City.  His journalism experience includes a long tenure with the Wall Street Journal.

Today we discuss Amy Coney Barrett’s religion, a huge drop in travel – including travel to religious sites – as a result of COVID, and The American Solidarity Party (ASP), a third party that takes Christian ideas seriously.  It’s pro-life, and pro-traditional marriage, which separates it from the Libertarian Party.  But it also favors a fairly strong environmental program, and it’s not afraid to say the government has a role in all of these arenas.

The producers for today’s program are Rich Roszel and Steve Gandy.   Here at MinistryWatch we get database, technical, and editorial support from Cathy Goddard, Stephen DuBarry, Christina Darnell, and Casey Sudduth.  Thanks to Bobby Ross, Ken Vaughan, Meghan Clarke, and the rest of the Religion Unplugged team for providing content for our conversation today.

Until next time, may God bless you.
