"John spent nearly ten years as an education reporter before leaving journalism to blend his passion for writing, politics and faith. Previously, he served as Communications Director at Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good and was an Assistant Director for Media Relations at the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. He has appeared on MSNBC, written for the National Catholic Reporter, Washington Post “On Faith,” U.S. Catholic, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and is frequently quoted in national media outlets. John blogs about Catholic issues at Bold Faith Type.
"Catholic nuns, Jesuit priests and journalism professors at Columbia University taught John to think critically and seek justice. He believes that religion is infinitely complex and fascinating, especially when you throw politics into the mix. John enjoys helping faith leaders communicate in a sound-bite culture and broadening a values debate that has been distorted by the Religious Right."
