Humphrey School hosts religious leaders in a discussion about how to reduce partisan animosity and arrogance.
Addressing a crowd at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs recently, the Rev. Leith Anderson, president of the National Association of Evangelicals, told a story about the now-defunct "Civility Project."
That bipartisan project folded last year after only three of 585 political leaders (535 congressional leaders, 50 governors) signed the following pledge:
"I will be civil in my public discourse and behavior. I will be respectful of others whether or not I agree with them. I will stand against incivility when I see it."
