Balancing Faith and Politics
Episcopal priest and retired Missouri U.S Senator and attorney general John Danforth presented the keynote address at the Center’s 25th Anniversary Annual Dinner in 2009. In his book, Faith and Politics, he devoted a chapter to the Terri Schiavo case. In this interview, he explains why he views the case as an “outrageous and extreme use of government” that was overly politicized and inconsistent with Republican principles of small government.
