March 17, 2011 Length: 33:25
On March 9, 2011 the Governor of Illinois signed a law banning the death penalty in his state, commuting the death sentence of 15 prisoners on death row. In the current episode of The Illumined Heart, Fr Peter-Michael Preble, a staunch anti-death penalty advocate, and host Kevin Allen discuss the pros and cons of capital punishment from an Orthodox perspective. Fr.Peter references the book Contemporary Moral Issues Facing The Orthodox Christian by Fr. Stanley Harakas.
"I found Ancient Faith Radio by accident when I began searching for information on Orthodoxy. I have been studying Orthodoxy for a year, and I am finally ready to take the first step and actually attend a service. I have learned so much from the various podcasts. Studying the Bible with you has been a wonderful experience. I found answers to questions that have long plagued me and answers to questions I didn't realize I had. Thank you for your knowledge and willingness to share with those of us who need direction in our faith."
