Talk to Action
, the blog site about the religious right and what to do about it I co-founded, has not sought media attention since our initial press release last November. We focused primarily on making the site a must-read, and we would worry about the media later.
But this week, a project that has been in the works for some time comes to fruition -- and some other media attention serendipitiously came our way.
Regular readers know that three Talk to Action
writers (John Dorhauer, Mainstream Baptist, and Andrew Weaver), will appear on State of Belief
, a national radio show hosted by Welton Gaddy, president of the Interfaith Alliance, and broadcast on Air America -- this Sunday.
I was interviewed for an article about the antigay, and anti-mainline Protestant politics of the rightist Institute on Religion on Democracy some time ago. It finally appreared in, the Washington, DC weekly, The Washington Blade. A somewhat different version appeared in Southern Voice.
As notable as all this may be, it can't hold a candle to Tanya Erzen's Talk to Action piece on the Christian Right and immigration -- that was cited by the Associated Press and appeared nationwide, including (among many, many, others),in the online editions of The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, USA Today, ABC News, as well as BeliefNet.
I am sure that the story will also appear in many print editions of newspapers across the county over the next few days as well.
