CFI’s Michael De Dora, Jr. appears on GritTV to debate “Religion on the Left”

November 3, 2009

GRITtv with Laura Flanders, a "news and arts discussion show, available daily, in multiple formats, with interactivity and a positive take on what’s going on" featured CFI’s New York branch director, Michael De Dora, Jr., on their show today.

From the website:

It’s election day in the U.S. and with Democratic candidates facing tough races in several states, we take a look at what the left can learn from religious organizations, who manage to keep people coming back week after week. Does religion have a place in social justice movements, and does the right have a lock on religious motivation to act?

Joining us to debate the proper place of religion and spirituality on the Left are Michael De Dora of the Center for Inquiry, Reverend Osagyefo Sekou, Senior Minister of Lemuel Haynes Congregational Church, Kim Gandy, Fellow, Institute of Politics, Harvard Kennedy School and former president, National Organization for Women, and Rabbi Michael Feinberg, Executive Director of the Greater New York Labor-Religion Coalition.
