Religion is Always in the Room

We’re taught not to talk about religion and politics in polite company. But dismissing religion ignores one of the fundamental, daily ways people interact with their world and how politics, law, healthcare, education are influenced by and tied up with religion. University of Vermont Professor Ilyse Morgenstein Fuerst discusses religious literacy, what we mean when we say religion, and how even if you are not religious, religion still impacts your life.
