Colorado Mormons honor Catholic archbishop as 'voice of courage'

Latter-day Saints in Colorado presented their 2007 Family Values Award to Archbishop Charles Chaput of the Catholic Archdiocese of Denver, who was described by Elder Steven E. Snow of the Seventy as "a voice of courage" in defending traditional marriage and family life. "On some key issues facing Americans today — the nature of marriage and family and the sanctity of human life, among others — Catholics and Mormons have the same concerns and similar values rooted in our belief of a loving God. It makes sense to work together and support each other whenever we can, and the Catholics warmly welcome that." To read the entire story about the honor from the Denver Post, please click here.
