Call to Action Upstate Presents:
Catholic Culture Wars
Featuring Michael Sean Winters
Michael Sean Winters is a journalist with the National Catholic Reporter covering politics and events in the Roman Catholic Church. He is the author of Left at the Altar: How Democrats Lost the Catholics and How Catholics Can Save the Democrats. His biography of the Rev. Jerry Falwell, God’s Right Hand: How Jerry Falwell Made God a Republican and Baptized the American Right was published in January 2012 to critical acclaim. Winters also reports on the U.S Church for the London-based Catholic weekly the Tablet.
About the Thruway Tour:
Culture Wars have distorted the Catholic intellectual and moral tradition of the Church. Winters will address the following topics:
- Achieving a balance of the “common good” in our divided society.
- The American tendency to reduce religion to ethics and politics and how that adds fuel to the fire of culture wars.
- Protecting ourselves and our Church from the distortions of Culture Wars.
- Becoming an inclusive church, one that listens, learns, and takes responsibility for proclaiming the Gospel.
- Questions and interactive discussion to follow. Image found at https://shop.catholic.com/catholics-and-the-culture-war/
