Cardinal McCarrick talks Christmas and politics

Retired Washington Cardinal Theodore McCarrick recently sat down with David Gregory of Meet the Press to talk Christmas and politics. The cardinal noted that Christmas comes to "remind us that there is a God and this is a God who loves us."  He also asserted that the more a voter understands about the issues, the more he or she will understand a candidate.

"We have to say," Cardinal McCarrick said, "'What is that man teaching - what is that woman teaching? How will it affect me, how will it affect my family, how will it affect my country?'"

Check out the extended interview here.
