Death Penalty Decision Answers Lingering Questions about How Barr’s Faith Affects His Politics

U.S. Attorney General William Barr is, by all accounts, a very committed Catholic. He’s a Knight of Columbus and served for several years as a member of its Supreme Board. He served on the board of the Catholic Information Center in Washington, D.C. until 2017 and serves on the board of the New York Archdiocese’s Inner-City Scholarship Fund. He reportedly donates $50,000 of his own money to pay for Catholic education for needy students each year.
