Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod speak with Colorlines publisher Rinku Sen about "We Are the Majority and We Demand Justice."

Rinku Sen spoke at the "Facing Race" conference in Baltimore on November 17th to discuss what happens next, after an election in which people of color were once again a deciding force.

Air date: 
Tue, 11/20/2012 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Abe and Joe examine the Israel/Palestine conflict, past and present.

 Some things are timeless -- the world turns, and Israelis and Palestinians try to kill each other. As the latest iteration in this eternal folly heads into its second week, efforts to broker a cease-fire are intensifying.

All of this begs the question -- why are they fighting? Will it ever end? Abe and Joe look for an answer and take listener calls.

Atheist Rights Group Sues IRS Over Tax-Exempt Churches

Fri, 11/16/2012

A non-profit group representing atheists and agnostics filed a federal lawsuit this week calling on the IRS to prevent tax-exempt religious organizations from electioneering. The Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation, which advocates for the separation of church and state, says that failing to enforce the tax code allows churches to advocate for candidates and unfairly raise money for political causes. According to the group, American religious organizations receive more than one billion dollars in tax-exempt contributions annually. Congress barred churches from using tax-exempt funds for politics in 1954, but since then the IRS has only revoked the tax exempt status of one church.
