Bill Bennett is a lifelong Catholic famous for his conservative writings. He served as Ronald Reagan's Secretary of Education.
He writes for the National Review. His best-known work is A Book of Virtues, an anthology of morally uplifting stories drawn from the Judeo-Christian West's literary history. He has been the subject of criticism both for his prior gambling habit and for a remark he made on his radio show in which he suggested that the crime rate would go down if every black baby were aborted, saying that this would be "impossible, ridiculous, and morally reprehensible".
