God Squad: Souls to the Polls?

Listen on

Episode notes

It’s an election year. Should churches have political candidates speak at Sunday services? Should clergy tell congregants how to vote? Should congregations organize political rallies or get-out-the-vote efforts? What are the proper lines for religious involvement in politics? And what are the consequences (to the body politic and to religious communities) when these lines get crossed?

Joining us for God Squad are Father Tim Holeda of St. Thomas More Co-Cathedral, Pastor Joe Davis, Jr. of Truth Gatherers Community Church, Stefanie Posner of Temple Israel, Discipleship Pastor Funmi Ojetayo of Four Oaks East, and Lead Pastor Scott Martin of Element3 Church.

Funding for this program was provided through a grant from Florida Humanities with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
