Religion’s Role in the 2008 Elections

Sep 28th, 2008 by PinPonPun in Atheism, Church and State, Politics

This video speaks volumes about the role religion has played in this year’s presidential race and yet doesn’t even touch upon the persisten and yet unfounded rumors about Obama’s faith.

The tenuous wall separating state and church is feeble enough as it is; today is “Pulpit Freedom Sunday” as certain pastor and religious leaders seek to interject themselves directly into world of politics while retaining their tax-exempt statuses. 

It should be interesting to see the fallout of this religious-political experiment; in the meanwhile, please support Americans United and their Project Fair Play.
