.- Colorado Public Radio will feature an in-depth interview with Archbishop Charles Chaput of Denver about the Catholic Church and politics. The interview will air July 13 on KCFR's Colorado Matters, hosted and produced by Dan Drayer. This is the archbishop’s most extensive interview on the subject since the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops issued a statement last month, deeply disapproving of Catholic politicians, who support abortion rights.

"Many people who are upset with the Church on this matter are telling us to shut up," Archbishop Chaput tells Drayer, "rather than just entering into the debate in a way that respects our American rights and our dignity and, of course what I think is really at stake here, the dignity of the unborn child. ... There's nothing wrong with a good debate and an ongoing debate about these issues.”

Audio of the full interview is available upon request.

Archbishop Chaput’s interview on Colorado Matters will air July 13 at 10 a.m. and 7 p.m., on Colorado Public Radio: KCFR 1340 AM in Denver, KCFC 1490 AM in Boulder, KKPC 1230 AM in Pueblo, KPRN 89.5 FM in Grand Junction, KPRH 88.3 FM in Montrose, and online at www.cpr.org.
