Do you hear something? It’s ‘God Talking’ on the campaign trail

Cary Covington gave a presentation at the Geneva Campus Ministry Friday lunch series, “Finding God at Iowa” last week. He talked about the reversal of religious anointment in the two major parties’ candidates, saying that the Dems were somehow more comfortable talking about religion this election cycle.

This first-year UI student, Samantha Honken, was impressed by Covington’s thesis. Religion and faith play a big part in her life.

It wasn’t only the believers listening to Covington’s talk, atheist and philosophy professor Evan Fales took part in the discussion.

He’s concerned that faith plays too big of a role in politics but is interested in hearing how faith informs public policy decisions.
