The Callie Crossley Show 8/25/10
2010 Mass Decision: State Representative Jeff Perry is running as a republican for the 10th Congressional District currently held by Congressman Bill Delahunt. He's been endorsed by many including former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney and Senator Scott Brown, but he's got a trail of controversy to worry about, including supervising a sergeant who conducted an illegal strip search, and a degree from a fake college. We'll get his explanation, and his take on the issues in the upcoming election.
Consumer Culture and the Church: With the rise of mega churches with thousands of members, we'll look at whether churches have adopted the aesthetics and business model of corporations, and whether changes in the church leave room for spirituality.
We're joined by:
-G. Jeffrey MacDonald: Religion reporter and minister in the United Church of Christ.
-Rev. Dr. James Forbes Jr., President and Founder of The Healing of The Nations Foundation and Senior Pastor Emeritus of The Riverside Church
-Nancy Ammerman, Professor of the sociology of religion at Boston University School of Theology
