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.
"AFR is an oasis for me in a troubling world of uncertainty. I listen often and my children love to listen, too. We are going through a very difficult time right now—being able to tune into AFR gives me and my children much comfort. Thank you for all that you do."
