Many of us have watched the Republican primary campaign unfold with growing concern about the prevalence of religious language in it. And we have worried about the potential permanent damage to the separation of Church and State, as enshrined in our Constitution.  However, author Christian Piatt, who we had a chance to talk to this week, argues that the overabundance of religious rhetoric may actually be good for our democracy in the long run. Be sure to listen in this week to find out why Piatt, editor of Banned Questions about the Bible and Banned Questions about Jesus, thinks Rick Santorum may turn out to be a champion of the secular left.

A New Religious Test
Our own Rev. Dr. C. Welton Gaddy weighs in on what just may be a new low in a race that some days seems more like a campaign for Pastor-in-Chief than Commander-in-Chief. Not only was Rick Santorum introduced by a pastor telling Americans who don’t share his conservative Christian views to “get out,” Santorum himself questioned the seriousness of the faith of Americans who choose to support his opponents. You don’t want to miss what Rev. Gaddy has to say, so make sure you listen in this week.
