The Meaning of "Pro-Life" in the Gun Control Debate June 09, 2017
Most Evangelical Christians call themselves "pro-life" on abortion. But what does that stance mean when it comes to the debate on gun control? For Rev. Allen Church, pro-life means protecting gun rights and using guns wisely to defend the innocent. For Rev. Rob Schneck, it means advocating for stricter gun control laws, and questioning our own capacity "to make a good moral judgment as to whether another human life should be taken." The pastors are featured in Abigail Disney's documentary, The Armor of Light. This segment first aired in 2015.

Martin Luther: 500 Years After the Reformation June 09, 2017
Many founders of world religions didn't think of themselves as founders at all. They thought of themselves as radical reformers. Jesus thought he was transforming Judaism; Siddhartha Gautama said he was remaking Hinduism. And so it was with Martin Luther, who initially set out to revamp the Catholic Church but went on to launch the Reformation, which sparked the creation of Protestant Christianity. As we approach the 500th anniversary of this huge schism in church history on October 31st, we talk to the author of a book about a lesser-known era in Luther's Life: his 10 fearful yet productive months hiding out in a German castle. This segment first aired in 2015.
