IN FOCUS: What is the role of religion in politics, government and American Life?
God in America
Religion and the Law
The Politics of God
I don't attend church on a regular basis but I try to use my individual beliefs and values to make the major decisions in my life.
If we allow a monument to one man's religion to stand in a public space, we have to then allow monuments to all sorts of religions and that would be nuts.
I want my leaders to have strong moral values and beliefs. If that means they speak openly of God and religion, I think that's just fine.
