Sen. Chris Coons, D-Delaware
U.S. Sen. Chris Coons on Faith and Politics April 12, 2019
Coons is a Democrat who has managed to meld his faith and his day job in way that many in his party might find instructive as they try to convince Americans that as much as Republicans, they too are “faith and values” candidates. Coons holds a masters of ethics from Yale Divinity School, was co-chair of the National Prayer Breakfast this year, and chairs the weekly Senate Prayer Breakfast. A Presbyterian, he says he is more grounded in his faith than ever, but less certain than ever that his reading of the Bible can reveal God’s will on questions of lawmaking and governing.
