Is Joe Lieberman's emphasis on religion bad for America?The American Prospect
Vice Presidential nominee Joe Lieberman's recent statements calling for a religious renewal of America touched off a fiery debate over the separation of church and state. The Anti-Defamation League, which monitors anti-semitism, has even called on the candidate to quit his sermonizing and focus on real issues.The American Prospect has pulled together a roundtable of leading thinkers to examine the role of religion in society, including questions like: How much should politicians talk about their faith? Does strict separation of church and state help or hurt religion? Can society be good without God? Participants include, among others, the Rev.
