Faith in God is a powerful motivator in people’s lives. Powerful enough to shape attitudes about everything from foreign policy to poverty at home.

On this special edition, part two of “Left, Right and Christian,” we look at faith and politics in the reddest county in the nation — Orange County, California. We expected to find the religious right — and we did — but we also found a few surprises along the way.

Featuring:

Nigel Morris, pastor, Vineyard Christian Fellowship; Gini Braley, teacher and director, Vineyard Partner School; Betsy Newman, teacher and co-director, Vineyard Partner School; Dwight Smith, Catholic worker and owner of Isaiah House; Rick Marshall, pastor, Brea Congregational Church; Dave Nunley, moderator, Brea Congregational Church; Benjamin Lopez, legislative analyst and lobbyist, Traditional Values Coalition.

This week’s hosts: Justin Beck and Meaghen Keyser. Contributing producer: Pauline Bartolone.
