The Future of Religion in American Politics, w/guest Charles Dunn

How much of a role did religion play in the 2008 elections? What might the founding fathers think of the fact that today’s presidential candidates are frequently peppered with questions concerning the Bible and Jesus? And why is America the lone economic superpower still beset with battles between secular and religious communities over issues such as the teaching of creationism vs. evolution in schools? My guest is Charles W. Dunn, dean of the Robertson School of Government at Regent University and editor of the new book, The Future of Religion in American Politics. [Originally broadcast on WLUW’s Under Surveillance in February 2009.]
