Religion and Politics in America

Hosted by

A long-time student of American politics says the Republicans have become America's first religious party.  On this archived edition of To the Point, we hear Kevin Phillips debate Richard Land of the Southern Baptist Convention.  Does religion drive foreign policy in the Bush White House?  What about the separation of church and state?  Plus, a conversation about the booming business of Christmas and a conversation about whether conservatives are more generous than liberals.

  • This edition of To the Point will not be heard live on KCRW as it will be pre-empted by special holiday programming.
