VIDEO: Peter Wehner on Faith and the Faithful in U.S. Politics



Georgetown Initiative on Catholic Social Thought and Public Life


On March 26, 2018, EPPC Senior Fellow Peter Wehner appeared at an event sponsored by the Georgetown Initiative on Catholic Social Thought and Public Life, titled “Faith and the Faithful in U.S. Politics.” Below is the sponsor’s description of the event:

The place of faith and the roles of the faithful in U.S. politics are often misunderstood and neglected, generate confusion and conflict, and are changing and challenging both religious communities and political leaders and parties. This first of a series of three Dialogues offered an overview and analysis of the continuing and changing religious dimensions of political life, including the election of President Trump and the leadership of Pope Francis. It also explored the roles of religious voters, evangelicals, Catholics, and other religious communities in a divided nation and polarized politics. John Carr, the director of the Initiative Catholic Social Thought and Public Life, moderated a civil and substantive roundtable with E.J. Dionne, Joshua DuBois, Jocelyn Kiley, and Peter Wehner.
