The Intersection of Religion & Politics: The Catholic Perspective
The economy is identified as the top concern and voting issue in this presidential election. There is, however, a strong and sometimes overriding religious subtext on such issues as abortion, contraception, and same sex marriage. In advance of an upcoming lecture at Fontbonne University on “Faithful Citizenship: A Forum on Religion and Public Life,” host Don Marsh talks with some of the panelists about the intersection of politics and religion, engaging in a broad discussion though approaching it from the Catholic perspective.
Our guests include:
- Randy Rosenberg, Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet Endowed Chair in Catholic Thought at Fontbonne University
- Julie Hanlon Rubio, associate professor of Christian ethics at St. Louis University
- Rusty Reno, editor of First Things
