In 2004 while I was hosting Colorado Matters on Colorado Public Radio, I interviewed Archbishop Charles Chaput of Denver. At the time, many of the nation’s Catholic bishops had spent a week in Colorado and issued a statement disapproving of Catholic politicians who support abortion rights. Archbishop Chaput attended. I asked him to talk with me about the Catholic Church and politics.
I also interviewed him in 2008 about his book, “Render Unto Caesar: Serving the Nation by Living Our Catholic Beliefs in Political Life.”
