Candidates Talk About Their Faith

Mitt Romney and Barack Obama are faithful men who don’t shy away from talking about their beliefs. Busted Halo’s Michael O’Loughlin looks at how the two men articulate their beliefs and what they mean to the personal and political decisions the two men make. Share Michael’s article with young adults and ask them about their reactions. Here are some other discussion questions to explore:

  • What role does your faith play in personal decisions? How openly do your share the role you faith plays in these decisions with others?
  • How might you talk about your faith with someone you work with or go to school with?
  • What did you think about Michael’s point that both Romney and Obama have very “American” religious experiences? What has been the story of your faith journey? Can you identify with Romney or Obama?
