Moderated by:

From Jeremiah Wright and anti-Muslim rhetoric to interfaith alliances and Compassion Forums, religion has been a front-burner issue during much of the 2008 presidential campaign. It has been used both as a divisive weapon and as a force that unites and inspires. Since 2004, the face of religion has changed dramatically across the country. The values debate is broader, the religious right is weaker, and a diversity of faith communities has gained visibility and strength.

What does the 2008 election tell us about the hopes and concerns of the country? What issues do we care about most? What role did faith communities play in the election, and what should they be doing in the days ahead? Please join our distinguished panel of experts for a provocative, enlightening conversation on religion and politics in 2008 and beyond.
