Congressman Chuck Fleischmann Shares the Importance of His Catholic Faith | EWTN News Nightly

Congressman Chuck Fleischmann of Tennessee spoke out against the defacing of Catholic statues not only in Chattanooga, Tennessee, but around the country. In July, a statue of the Virgin Mary was found on the ground, beheaded, outside of St. Stephen's Catholic Church in Chattanooga, just miles from the congressman's house. He has said "Violence is wrong. It's always wrong" and wrote to the attorney general encouraging the justice department's work to "protect religious freedom, and combat religious discrimination." Fleischmann attributes his belief in non-violence to his Catholic upbringing. " ...It was very important to [my mother] that I be raised in the Catholic faith tradition." He is grateful for the universal church connecting all the Catholic faithful. Capitol Hill Correspondent, Erik Rosales reports.
