Overview

When journalists report political stories they tend to be in their element, and appear to be informed, savvy, and street-smart. When they report stories related to religion, however, they tend to be uninformed and insensitive. In this series of eight articles, based on material from conferences put on by the Ethics and Public Policy Center to help journalists understand religious issues, a wide range of commentators discuss evangelism, Catholicism, Judaism, the separation of church and state, voting patterns, the role of religion in public discourse, the new Christian Right, and religion in politics.
