Wholey, a Catholic, was inspired to create I BELIEVE one Sunday when he drove past a Protestant church with a full parking lot and wondered, "What goes on in there; what do those people believe?" Wholey adds, "The goal of I BELIEVE is not to create controversy or practice 'gotcha' journalism but to learn about different religions and faiths. In America's rapidly changing culture, it's not enough to tolerate diversity; we need to actively seek to learn and respect the way other people live, what they believe, and how they worship."
