The 2016 presidential election split the country.  That is well-known.  Interestingly enough, a comprehensive study with more than 64,000 respondents indicates that among Catholic voters, Donald Trump garnered 49% of the vote while Hillary Rodham Clinton garnered 46%.  What brought about such a split?  Steven Millies contends, not surprisingly, that neither candidate offered an appealing perspective on social or political questions.  Follow Steven as he uncovers the path of the Catholic vote and reflects on ways to put the Catholic faith to better use in American politics.

"Steven Millies's engaging narrative deftly navigates enduring tensions at intersections of theology, law, and politics in view of the impact of cultural and religious polarization in the postconciliar church. His subtle, interdisciplinary analysis offers valuable insights into questions of conscience, political engagement, and Catholic identity that will prove helpful to those interested in a forging a path forward beyond the binary thinking and divisive patterns he identifies."
Kristin E. Heyer, Professor of Theological Ethics, Boston College
