GZERO World with Ian Bremmer


Nov 11, 2019

The Catholic Church is facing tremendous internal upheaval and Pope Francis is at the center of it. Our guest is a Jesuit priest who recently had a private audience with the Pontiff, and who has courted plenty of controversy of his own. In a candid conversation with Ian Bremmer, bestselling author Fr. James Martin discusses the moment of potential schism the Church is facing. On issues like LGBT inclusion, immigration, and income inequality, Pope Francis has moved the Church into a more progressive place, one that traditionalists and conservatives oppose. Meanwhile, the sex abuse scandal continues to take a toll on Church membership and credibility. Fr. Martin frankly and honestly addresses all these issues and more.
