Talk-radio host on 150 stations is Catholic convert

Catholic World News - February 16, 2011

Allen Hunt, a talk-radio host whose show is broadcast on 150 stations, discusses his conversion to the Catholic faith in a Catholic newspaper interview. Hunt, a former megachurch pastor, says that

there were three big things that led to me entering the Church. First was a growing sense of Christ’s real presence in the Eucharist. Secondly is what I call doctrine by democracy. In general, in the Protestant church, everything is up to a vote every few years. For instance, in the Methodist church, every four years we would get together to vote whether or not homosexual behavior is acceptable or not and whether it was time to ordain openly gay pastors.

The third area of reflection was Jesus’ prayer in John 17. There, Jesus pleads for unity in the body of Christ. The Protestant church has split into 33,000 different strands. What message does that fractioning send to the world? As well, how much this division must grieve God’s heart.
