The Wall of Separation Between Church and State is a hot topic in this year’s midterm elections. From witch-hunting evangelicals to Christian nationalists, from violence to gross injustices, our show will touch on instances of extremism and their interplay with politics. The panel includes:

Bruce Wilson of Talk2Action.org exposed how Hawaii’s politics have been influenced by Christian extremists. In May 2008, Wilson posted a video widely credited in the media with precipitating then-GOP presidential candidate John McCain's decision to reject his long-sought endorsement from evangelist John Hagee.

Ilene Proctor is a publicist with an impressive clientele. Ilene will tell the shocking story of how a crime was manufactured against John McTiernan, director of the films Predator, Die Hard, and The Hunt for Red October ... and how any American can face the same type of injustice.

Chris Rodda, author of Liars For Jesus and blogger at The Huffington Post, will reveal why Glenn Beck might be ousted as a radio personality on Armed Services Radio. Chris is Senior Research Director for the Military Religious Freedom Foundation.

Leah Burton, consultant to the California Council of Churches, board member of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, and author of the forthcoming book, Palin’s America: God, Guns & Greed, was a victim of the type of violence that Lauren Valle received from Rand Paul supporters. After leaving a meeting in which she had shared her views about Sarah Palin’s religious views, Leah was “curbed," resulting in a shattered cheekbone that required surgery and a metal plate.
