This week’s Religion News Godcast: Godtalk at the GOP

As Republicans decamp from Tampa with a newly minted Mormon nominee, RNS Editor-in-Chief Kevin Eckstrom talks with Kim Lawton, managing editor of PBS' Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly, about Godtalk at the GOP in this week's Religion News Godcast.

RNS works closely with our broadcast partners at Religion & Ethics, and Kim is a longtime observer of religious activism and politics. As you can see from the photo, broadcast is a pain with a tropical storm bearing down.

Will evangelicals rally for a Mormon nominee? Do the die-hard partisans at the convention represent the rank-and-file? And can the GOP sway Catholics by linking arms with the hierarchy around the contraception fight and religious liberty?

The Religion News Godcast is available every Friday at iTunes. If you don't have iTunes, you can subscribe to the Godcast at Feedburner, or at Soundcloud.
