The Role of Faith in the Public Square

Acton's Director of Programs Michael Miller joins host Greg Allen of The Right Balance to discuss the proper role of religion in the public square in light of the religious debates during the course of the early presidential primary season. Miller argues that there is an appropriate role for religion in our political process, and that the common belief that religion and politics must remain completely separate is based on a misinterpretation of Constitutional principles. Additionally, he notes that most conservative evangelical voters do not make their choice in presidential races solely based on the religion of a given candidate, but are willing to side with a variety of candidates as long as their positions on non-negotiable issues (such as abortion) are in line with the voter's values.
