Watch Now Button
Length: 13:54

As a veteran reporter on the national scene, Ray Suarez has long been fascinated with, and often troubled by how the country’s public policy debate is often framed along religious and political fault lines. In his recent book on the subject, Suarez writes that getting religion out of American politics would be like trying to get sugar out of a cup of coffee, but he’s hopeful these two gigantic institutions in American life can find a way to co-exist and respect each other. Suarez talked about the subject with our Jak Tichenor during his recent visit to SIU Carbondale at the invitation of the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute.
