Democratic presidential hopeful Tom Steyer on faith, climate change and who goes to heaven

From the article:

Billionaire businessman-turned-climate-activist Tom Steyer has emerged as an unexpected player in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, recently polling among the top contenders in South Carolina. Known for his environmental advocacy, Steyer, like other candidates, has made a point of referencing his faith often while on the campaign trail — and even referred to religious activists while on the debate stage.

Still, less is known about Steyer’s personal approach to matters divine. He spoke with Religion News Service to discuss his faith, how it intersects with his policy agenda, and the overlap between religion and politics in the United States. This interview has been edited for length and clarity.

1. There is no need to promote a billionaire trying to buy the Democratic nomination.

Please don't. I realize your need to promote religion above all else, but let's try to agree a billionaire is not going to fix this country. OK?

2. That's Tom and Pete out.

I want a candidate who talks about reality.
