Warren and Curry

Patrick Archbold at CMR shows a clip of Ann Curry's interview with Evangelical pastor, Rick Warren. The operative response is Warren's succinct, apt answer regarding homosexuality. The money shot is Curry's eye-flutter after Warren's answer. I like Curry, but Warren cornered her in a true Jesus-trips-the-Pharisees-at-their-own-game moment.

What one needs to ask as a follow-up to Warren's reply is this: How do you know right from wrong? What is the epistemological origin for your certainty regarding faith and morals?

That is the thread that would lead our separated brothers and sisters, perhaps, back to Catholic truth vouchsafed by the Magisterium. Perhaps.
