The Role of Religion in Presidential Politics, 2012

Americans seem to like the idea of a religious, or at least morally guided, president. President Obama is reluctant to be forward about his faith but needs to overcome his reticence, according to Professor Randall Balmer of Columbia University, in the video, "Defending His Faith: President Obama and the Politics of Religion."

In a second video article, "Faith in the 2012 Elections," Professor J. Terry Todd of Drew University explores the religious makeup of the 2012 Republican presidential candidates and analyses how their beliefs affect their run for the office.
 
A third video news story, “Mormons and Evangelicals,” explores the theological issues related to the decision of evangelical Mark DeMoss to support Mormon Mitt Romney’s candidacy. All three videos are archived on the website of Odyssey Networks, an interfaith consortium that uses electronic media to enrich spiritual life and build bridges of understanding among people of faith.
