Pope Francis Holds His Weekly General Audience

The Catholic Intellectual Voice (American Style)…

December 12, 2013 With Robert P. George

…is heard in this podcast with Robert George, Professor of Jurisprudence at Princeton and Lecturer at The Harvard Law School. Many have said that as  Niebuhr was the earlier ideational manifestation of American liberal Protestantism so George now is for contemporary American conservative Catholicism. Here he addresses the many issues currently roiling both in the Catholic church and in—as his mentor, Father Richard Newhouse might have said—the public square. An incidental aspect of this conversation is that it demonstrates the rhetorical force and ordered logic that have commended him as one of the master teachers of our time. An interesting analytic exercise would be to compare George’s views to what we have been hearing from Pope Francis.
