Is The Catholic Church Too Political?

 |  NCR Today

NCR Today blogger Michael Sean Winters was a guest on Jack Rice's show "Live in Washington," which airs on Air America.

Listen here: Is The Catholic Church Too Political?

The teaser for the show reads: "Over the past few weeks the Catholic Church has been injecting itself, more and more, into the political arena. From backing the Stupak Amendment to denying Representative Kennedy communion because of his position on abortion to fighting gay marriage legislation, the Church has been very vocal. Pro-life Democrat and practicing Catholic Michael Sean Winters debates Jack Rice over the Catholic Church's involvement in these recent political issues."
