Guest Host: Melinda Penkava

There was a time when candidates for political offices didn’t talk about their religious beliefs. But today it’s become acceptable, even fashionable, to talk about one’s spiritual beliefs. A panel talks about how, when and why religion lost its taboo in the political realm.
