Archbishop Chaput Takes on the Conventional Narrative

From an interview he did with me on religious liberty in America and his new e-book on the same:

LOPEZ: What about the fact that so many Catholics — however many — use contraception and are advocates of legal abortion in their political lives?

CHAPUT: That’s the wrong question. Plenty of self-described Catholics also commit adultery and cheat on their taxes. That doesn’t make them right, and it doesn’t make their behaviors “Catholic.” The central issue in the HHS-mandate debate isn’t contraception. Casting the struggle as a birth-control fight is just a shrewd form of dishonesty. The central issue in the HHS debate is religious liberty. The government doesn’t have the right to force religious believers and institutions to violate their religious convictions. But that’s exactly what the White House is doing.
