Michael Sean Winters is an American journalist and writer who covers politics and events in the Roman Catholic Church for the National Catholic Reporter, where his blog "Distinctly Catholic" can be found. "Distinctly Catholic" received the Catholic Press Association award for "Best Individual Blog" multiple times. Winters is also the US correspondent for The Tablet, the London-based international Catholic weekly.

Winters is the author of Left At the Altar: How Democrats Lost The Catholics And How Catholics Can Save The Democrats. His biography of the Rev. Jerry Falwell, God's Right Hand: How Jerry Falwell Made God a Republican and Baptized the American Right was published by Harper One in January 2012.

Winters has described himself as an "Ella Grasso Democrat," a reference to the pro-labor, pro-life, pro-Israel Governor of Connecticut in the 1970s. On Catholic issues, he is frequently ranged in opposition to the conservative "culture warrior" approach, favoring positions that are both "orthodox" and "pastoral".[citation needed]


Winters has written in opposition to the agenda of President Donald Trump.[1]
