Jimmy Carter on 'Interfaith Voices'

 |  NCR Today

Recently, I had the privilege of interviewing former President Jimmy Carter on "Interfaith Voices" about his new book on women: A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence and Power.

During the interview, I asked him about his view of Pope Francis and if he would be willing to dialogue with him on the question of women's rights, including the possibility of ordaining women as priests in the Roman Catholic church.  He is more than willing.

When I blogged about this before, we had not yet broadcast the interview. Now we have. Here is the link.
