Michael Coren didn't have to be Catholic. Actually, he's had several opportunities to walk away from the enterprise altogether. Born to a Jewish cab-driver father in Essex, England, in January 1959, he became a Roman Catholic in his 20s while still living in the U.K. A talk show host and author of fifteen books, Coren took time to answer some questions from Breitbart News on his views and prognostications.
