Today's show features a debate and discussion between myself and the Keith Giles. Mr. Giles argues that religion and politics should be separate and the Christians shouldn't even vote. I argue that religion is political, has always been political, and will be political in the foreseeable future. The question is not whether religion is or should be political. Instead, the question is what type of politics will it be?

Keith Giles is the author of "Jesus Untangled: Crucifying Our Politics to Pledge Allegiance to the Lamb." Rich Procida is an author and attorney who writes Biblical commentary at and produces the Podcast "Bible Study for Progressives. I recorded this debate and discussion live at the Think Meetup in Irvine California before a mixed group of Christians, atheists, and people of other faiths on March 5, 2018. Sit back, relax and enjoy.
