/ -- The importance of the U.S. president's religious faith will be explored at Lifetree Café community forums from coast to coast during the week of September 9, 2012.
This program, titled "The President's Faith: Does It Matter?" features exclusive filmed interviews with Michael Gerson, columnist for The Washington Post and chief speechwriter for George W. Bush, and Jim Wallis, president of Sojourners and spiritual advisor to Barack Obama.
According to Michael Gerson, "You do look at the deeper beliefs that a candidate holds, particularly on the issue of individuals and their rights and values."
Jim Wallis said, "We set this up so it would not be a Christian nation. Now sometimes Christians have acted like it is or it should be."
"How the president's faith affects his or her decisions while in office is a matter of debate as we head into the 2012 elections," says Lifetree representative Craig Cable. "This forum will help us explore what--if any--impact religious beliefs play in the president's job performance."
Lifetree Café is a national network of venues where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting.
