Is the American Chesterton Society turning away new people because they keep talking about Chesterton's Catholic faith? His conversion? His religion?

Maybe we'd have more interested people if we'd just keep Chesterton's faith quiet.

Will Chesterton's canonization narrow him into a small little Catholic readership? Will he be narrowed? Can he be narrowed?

 

Nancy Brown discusses these any other questions in this episode of Uncommon Sense.
