Religion in US Politics

Religion has long been a staple of American politics. At the national level politicians have continually evoked religious themes, whether addressing foreign policy, social, economic, and social issues, or their own convictions, and the nation continues to debate the proper role of religion in public life, including the structure of church-state relations and the nature of religious freedom in a religiously plural society. This resource page assembles statements from politicians, journalists, scholars, and activists as they contribute to this discussion. For a historical perspective on how American presidents have approached this issue, see here.
