2022 Thruway Tour


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/
