Former PD contributor Jeff Hunt is doing PR for an intriguing new documentary on religion and politics. It’s called Article VI and the trailer is now online. What better day to see it than the day Romney makes his highly-anticipated JFK speech?

I know, I know, I keep saying I want to keep the discussion more on politics and less on religion, but this film merits our attention. It’s certainly possible to discuss the role of religion in politics without bashing one another’s beliefs. (Careful stepping off the soapbox, Jason.)

A snippet from the film’s website:

THE CATALYST
The documentary Article VI is an intense discussion of the role of faith in politics. In the heat of the current presidential campaign, Article VI makes an unbiased presentation on a volatile topic. It asks voters whether they would have denied America some of the greatest presidents in history because of their religious beliefs. Article VI of the constitution ignites the film’s exploration of the current political environment, religious bigotry, and intolerance in America.

THE FILM
In response to Americans’ concerns about his Catholicism in the 1960 presidential campaign, JFK said “an act against one religion is an act against all.” Today, the debate rages as the faith of the 2008 presidential candidates falls under the same scrutiny. Article VI examines the Founding Fathers’ vision of religious freedom and the current intersection of faith and politics.
