Bishop Budde on ‘Face the Nation,’ Bishop Beckwith on ‘Morning Joe’

Bishop Budde on ‘Face the Nation,’ Bishop Beckwith on ‘Morning Joe’

Those tempted to skip church on Easter Sunday (or those attending a midnight or sunrise vigil) can stay home to hear “Face the Nation,” featuring Bishop Mariann Budde of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington. She will be part of a roundtable discussion on the state of religion in America. Joining her will be the Islamic Society of Boston’s Imam Suhaib Webb, Rabbi David Wolpe of the Sinai Temple in Los Angeles, and Bishop Harry Jackson of Hope Christian Church. The show will start with an interview with Catholic Cardinal Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York, discussing Pope Francis and challenges facing the Catholic church.

Check local listings here.

Catch video here of Bishop Mark Beckwith this morning on “Morning Joe” on MSNBC, talking about Good Friday and interfaith work. The Rt. Rev. Beckwith serves the Episcopal Diocese of Newark.

We also have word that the Very Rev. Gary Hall, dean of Washington National Cathedral, will be on CNN Newsroom at 7:15 p.m. ET Sunday, debating marriage equality with a Catholic priest.

It will be pre-recorded. Not live on Sunday

Chris Arnold

Is this pre-recorded? Or are they seriously doing that on the Sunday of the Resurrection of Our Lord?


If that’s the “Bishop Harry Jackson” I’m thinking of, he’s a *heinous* bigot. Blood libel against LGBTs. Disgraceful. CBS shouldn’t give him a platform, and people of (every) good faith should not give him credibility [Anymore than one would “debate” a Klansman! >:-( ]

Oh please post a video of that 7:15am debate. I will be otherwise occupied, but would love to see it.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
