Unexpected Allies In The Catholic Church

Writer Richard Rodriguez has stirred controversy in the past with his opinions on affirmative action and bilingual education. But one topic that has always been present in his writing that he feels few have noticed is religion. In his new book Darling: A Spiritual Autobiography, Rodriguez looks at religion in the years after 9/11.

Host Maria Hinojosa interviews Rodriguez, a gay catholic, about the church. They talk about a revelation he had about the role of women in the church and how it has affected his relationship with the institution.
