Podcast #130 – The Fundagelical Politics of Rick Perry and Michele Bachmann

The Republican presidential race is in full swing, and fundamental evangelicalism is already playing an important part. We look at the religious views (and actions) of two frontrunners: Texas Governor Rick Perry and Congresswoman Michele Bachmann. Specifically, check out Timothy Egan’s NYT article “Rick Perry’s Unanswered Prayers” and Bachmann’s August 14 appearance on Meet the Press (go to the 3:00 mark to listen to the discussion of her religious views).
