From the "Teaching Moments '08" Desk, what'll likely be another intervention of note in the campaign's home stretch is on the way as Archbishop Joseph Naumann of Kansas City in Kansas delivers a talk on "social justice and the elections" tonight at the University of Kansas.

A native of St Louis, Naumann's already made three noteworthy strides in the political arena this year, beginning with his public May request for the state's Democratic governor to refrain from the Eucharist after Kathleen Sebelius vetoed a measure that would've restricted abortion access, a public critique of the governor's serving on the Obama campaign's Catholic advisory committee, and his recent joint pastoral with KCMO Bishop Robert Finn on the "moral responsibility" of the Catholic voter.

Sponsored by Jayhawks Central's campus ministry, the archbishop's 7pm speech will be followed by a Q&A period.
