DR. CHEESEMAN TALKS RELIGION & POLITICS, PART 1
At an all-time high, the intensity around political partisanship has divided the country. We no longer see each other for who we are, but the issues we support. Religion is often at the center of politics, leaving members of communities feeling marginalized based on the policies influenced by religion.
I recently sat down with Melissa Cheeseman, Emergency Medicine Physician and Faith Leader, to discuss the intersection of politics and religion. And how we, as a society, can shift the conversation in a way that unites us because of our commonality vs. leading with our differences.
We discuss an important question, “Does Religion have a place in Politics?”
While this is a polarizing conversation, it is one we must have with ourselves, our family and members of our communities. There is no right or wrong answer, but one we should examine in an effort to unite us because of our shared humanity, in-spite of our differences.
