US Government Hires Ethicist in Hopes that He Can Repair Religious Relationships Globally

Campaign adviser and ethicist Shaun Casey has been given a new position to lead the State Department’s new Office of Faith-Based Community Initiatives.

Casey served as advisor during President Obama’s campaign, helped other Democrats to reach religious voters and is a professor of Christian ethics at the Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, D.C.

The Office of Faith-Based Community Initiatives, that Casey will head, has been set up partially to quell rumors and criticism that the U.S. is pushing religious groups aside in its foreign policy.

Secretary of State John Kerry said that Casey would understand how to talk with religious communities around the world so that the U.S. can help them achieve peace. Kerry added that to ignore the global impact of religion was a foolish move in a world where people of different faiths live together.
