Hunthausen Biographer John McCoy On 'Home Ground Radio' (Broadcast 'Home Ground Radio' 12/27/15)
Within the Catholic Church, there exists a surprising diversity of viewpoints, illustrated vividly by native Montanan archbishop Raymond Hunthausen. He was Carroll College president, then a bishop. As archbishop of Seattle, he took a stand against nuclear weapons, which brought him into direct conflict with his president and his pope. John McCoy published a biography of Hunthausen in 2015: “A Still and Quiet Conscience: The Archbishop Who Challenged a Pope, a President, and a Church”. McCoy joins us this week on "Home Ground Radio".
