Vocal Point-Dr. Mark Beliles

President Washington declared a day of Thanksgiving to be celebrated in November 1789. President Lincoln made Thanksgiving an annual celebration in late November every year. But it might be asked, “What about ‘the separation of church and state’”? Dr. Mark Beliles joins Jerry Newcombe to discuss Thomas Jefferson, the source of the phrase (separation of church and state) and the truth about Jefferson’s faith—providing a much more nuanced picture that we often hear today. Together Beliles and Newcombe wrote the new book, Doubting Thomas. www.doubtingthomasbook.com
