Faith and Politics

What is the role of faith in politics and how much influence should it have? 

The First Amendment states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” However, the phrase “separation of church and state” itself does not appear in the United States Constitution. Faith and religion clearly have an influence in politics but how much influence should it have?

Indivisible HOPE podcasts

Indivisible HOPE proudly presents a podcast series to reach out to residents and voters to inform about topics, candidates and upcoming elections.
Although we couldn’t be happier with the outcome of our monthly meetings, we have to acknowledge that we are competing with family time in the evening, and many people cannot attend due to other commitments or obstacles. For those, we will publish our monthly meetings as a podcast.
But we also wanted to add another outlet to go deeper into conversations with candidates or stakeholders in our community to get to know them better.
In our first podcast, we introduce ourselves and tell you why we started Indivisible HOPE. We just published our second podcast and introduce you to Noah Marlier, candidate for the office of Prothonotary in Montgomery County, PA.

You can subscribe to our podcast chanel on Podbean or iTunes.
