George has provided advice on moral issues to Ted Cruz (his former student), Ben Carson, Jeb Bush, and others. Unfortunately, apart from abortion and gay marriage, I don't hear much of George's nuanced views when I listen to these candidates. George is pro-life, pro-traditional marriage, and one of our foremost advocates for the application of natural law to moral and political issues. He also hangs out with Cornell West, sees no difference between his views and the views of Pope Francis, thinks poverty is one of the most pressing moral issues of our day, and wishes he could go back to voting as a Democrat.
(He also went to Swarthmore with Way of Improvement Leads Home reader and friend Fred Jordan. I think they may have even been roommates).
