Why Can't Religion and Politics Just Get Along?

The Rt. Rev. Catherine S. Roskam, bishop suffragan of New York; David Allen White, a professor of English at the U.S. Naval Academy and a devout Catholic; Randall Balmer, the Ann Whitney Olin Professor of American Religion at Barnard College, and Jay Lefkowitz, U.S. special envoy on human rights in North Korea, discuss "Is Religion Political?" Marianne Hirsch, professor of English and comparative literature at Columbia, moderated the March 2 discussion, which marked the inauguration of Columbia's new program series "Religion in the Public Sphere," sponsored by the Kraft Family Fund for Interfaith and Intercultural Awareness.
