The Appropriateness of God in Politics

It's not unusual to hear the opinion that religion should not be an issue in American politics. And of course, the US Constitution prohibits any religious test that must be met for an individual to hold public office. But should religious belief have nothing to do with politics? Dr. Jay Richards joins host Trevor Carey on AM 710 KNUS to argue that religion has a place in politics. While it would be inappropriate for candidates to be barred from office based on their religious beliefs, it is entirely appropriate for voters to examine the religious beliefs of candidates in order to help determine not only the candidate's character, but also to provide insight into the candidate's philosophy of governance. Richards and Carey cover the issue of abortion, and also candidates including Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney and Barack Obama.
