Religion in the News: Archbishop Joseph Kurtz, and Amish on Trial in Kentucky

by Brad Yost on October 16, 2011

Friday, Oct. 14, on State of the News, we chatted with Peter Smith, Religion Writer from the Courier-Journal.  He discussed his recent feature article on Archbishop Joseph Kurtz‘s burgeoning career within the Catholic Church. Kurtz continues to rise in prominence within the Church, and many speculate he is a leading candidate for archbishop in a major American city, and possibly even cardinal.

We also talked about the ongoing story of some Amish men in Kentucky being ordered to jail for their refusal – on religious grounds – to display orange reflective triangles on their buggies.
