- Religion in the 2012 Election -- In the final countdown to next week’s election, both presidential campaigns are shoring up support from their coalitions, including religious coalitions. Although faith-based outreach hasn’t dominated this campaign, it has remained a key factor. Managing Editor Kim Lawton looks at the many ways religion has been playing a role in Election 2012.
- Black Churches and Gay Marriage – On Election Day, four states have same-sex marriage measures on the ballot. Traditionally, some of the strongest opposition to gay marriage has come from Black churches. However, as Betty Rollin reports, there is now a sharp debate among some African-American ministers over whether that opposition should continue.
