Some people say you shouldn’t talk about religion or politics, but in today’s world, the role of faith in public policy is becoming more important. This week, I talk with a couple of experts on both: Andrew Preston is a Cambridge University professor who says President Obama’s actions have not matched his rhetoric when it comes to faith and foreign policy. Then I chat with Farid Senzai, who helped prepare a major report on Muslims in America and their role in this year’s election. Religion and politics: strange bedfellows or necessary companions on this week’s Passages.
