How do US communities today balance their religious beliefs with their political pursuits?

Filmmaker Ilan Ziv spent much of the last year observing and documenting life in Anderson, South Carolina, a place where 90 percent of the residents go to church. This small town is a snapshot of how America balances Church and State.

Ziv's perspective is unique. He fled his homeland, Israel, in order to escape the volatile mix of religion and politics there. He wanted to build a life in a country where he felt religion was not always uppermost in people's minds. But as he reveals in this episode of We the People, religious fervor in the US is alive and well.
