Souls to the Polls?

God Squad: Souls to the Polls?

It’s an election year. Should churches have political candidates speak at Sunday services? Should clergy tell congregants how to vote? Should congregations organize political rallies or get-out-the-vote efforts? What are the proper lines for religious involvement in politics? And what are the consequences (to the body politic and to religious communities) when these lines get crossed?

OUR SEASON: September 2022 through March 2023
God Squad is 13 years old.
We hope you'll join us all year.

This program is part of our 13th season of God Squad, hosting improbable conversations for people of faith and no faith at all “because talking politics wasn’t hard enough.” We hope you’ll take a moment to check out the full season of programs here.

So many ways to hang out with God Squad.
God Squad is on Village SquareCast
Listen wherever you get your podcasts!

Need a God Squad hit of wisdom and hope while you go about your day? Village SquareCast is the podcast your mother warned you about. We talk politics, religion and race — across color, creed and ideology — and we do it like the partners in democracy that we really ought to be.
