PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) – With the recent resignation of Pope Benedict XVI, many are wondering what will happen for the future of the Catholic Church.

KDKA Radio’s Mike Pintek spoke with author Garry Wills about his insight to religion.

Wills is a Catholic, but doesn’t agree with the rules it has in place.

He spent his youth attending a Jesuit Seminary and nearly became a priest himself. But after some soul-searching, he developed some challenging questions like why do we need priests at all?

Wills is the author of “Why Priests? A Failed Tradition,” “Papal Sin,” “What Jesus Meant,” and “Why I Am A Catholic.”

Mike can be heard weekdays, noon to 3 p.m. only on NewsRadio 1020 KDKA!
