DR. CHEESEMAN TALKS RELIGION & POLITICS, PART 2
In part 2 of my conversation with Dr. Melissa Cheeseman, we continue our discussion on the intersection of politics and religion.
Some of our discussion includes how faith may influence party affiliation and policy leanings. We discuss when faith influences policy, but leaves some members of a community feeling marginalized, how do we reconcile this?
Dr. Cheeseman also discusses the division between political leanings and faith communities and how we can reconcile this. She emphasizes how we fail to see each other for who we are, but instead, the issues or policies we support. This leads to division and we fail to see our shared humanity.
Dr. Cheeseman offers enlightening ideas on the intersection of politics and religion in our conversation. I hope you’ll be inspired to see others for who they are and not the issues they support, no matter political affiliation or religious leanings.
