Meeting Jesus in the Voting Booth: Faith and the 2008 Election
October 16, 2008
Presenter: Rev. Kenneth Himes, O.F.M., associate professor of theology and chair of the Boston College Theology Department
Many of the key issues debated in the final campaign for the 2008 U.S. presidential election had implications for people of faith. How does Church teaching address immigration, war and peace, concerns about the earth’s changing climate, ethical issues arising out of advances in science, and more? This presentation addresses these issues in the context of faithful citizenship.
