VIDEO: Kathleen Kennedy Townsend on Churches Failing America’s Faithful

“Two-term Maryland lieutenant governor Townsend makes a valid point: in America, faith is no longer about community. She longs for the Catholic Church of her youth, that ‘dealt with issues at the core of the Gospel–suffering, injustice, sickness, and poverty’ rather than a Christianity influenced by a crop of preachers who seem to believe that ‘Jesus healed the sick, fed the hungry and cared for the poor just so we don’t have to.’ Addressing a broad range of issues including women, the religious right (and left), the GOP and her own political party, the Democrats, Townsend hopes to appeal to a wide audience, not just a Christian one.”
