A candid conversation…but one on heavy issues.
He seems to have great respect for journalists and doesn’t talk down to them. I wish they had pressed him a bit more on the death penalty. While I agree with the church’s statement that the death penalty is warranted in certain extreme situations, I would say that there is not the possibility of that existing in the United States and certainly is not the case in any of the situations in which people have recently been put to death. Regardless of this, the point that abortion is a far worse problem is certainly a valid.
