Author to speak on religion, politics

Author to speak on religion, politics

The role of religious beliefs in presidential elections will be the topic of discussion when author David L. Holmes speaks at a free political science and history forum from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at Indiana University Kokomo.

Holmes, author of “Faiths of the Postwar Presidents,” will conduct the forum in Kelley Student Center Room 130. It is open to the public, and free parking is available. Books may be purchased in the campus bookstore during regular hours, and Holmes will sign copies starting at 5 p.m. The IU Kokomo campus bookstore is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday.

Andrew McFarland, associate professor of history, said how a president’s beliefs guide him in the job has been a topic of discussion for many years, especially in the most recent elections.

“We thought this topic was a good fit and would be of interest to our campus and community,” he said. “There is so much discussion today about the role of religion in politics, and a great deal of debate about the separation of church and state.”
