Faith in the 2016 Election

Religion is emerging as an important issue in the 2016 presidential campaign. Questions of personal religious identity are under debate, both for potential candidates and the growing segment of Millennial voters without any religious affiliation. The challenges of Islam in America and how to respond to revolutions across the Muslim world have increasing salience. Moreover, divisive social issues with a religious dimension, including abortion and same-sex marriage, continue to spark discussion and controversy. This site gathers together the most important statements by the candidates in both the primary and general election campaigns.
