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.
"Thank you, AFR, for your ministry. AFR reaches into China, where I have twice found myself on business. It is a breath of fresh air, a connection with home, and (most importantly) the primary link I have with my faith while traveling. God Bless you all!"
