Religion has played a pivotal role in American politics and especially presidential campaigns. Mitt Romney’s Mormon faith and media scrutiny of several evangelical candidates this year has again raised the issue to the forefront.

Many viewed John F. Kennedy’s Catholic faith as an obstacle in his bid for the White House in 1960. Kennedy even gave a major address that year to Protestant ministers in Houston, Texas to assuage concerns they had about his Catholicism. Join Ray Nothstine as he leads a discussion about the modern history of religion and presidential campaigns and a look at how the issue is shaping up for the 2012 campaign.
