THE ARMOR OF LIGHT follows an Evangelical minister and the mother of a teenage shooting victim who ask, is it possible to be both pro­-gun and pro­-life?

In what RogerEbert.com calls “one of the year’s most powerful documentaries” and The Christian Science Monitor describes as a “gripping portrait of courage,” director Abigail E. Disney tracks an Evangelical minister trying to find the moral strength to preach about the growing toll of gun violence in America. In THE ARMOR OF LIGHT Reverend Rob Schenck breaks with orthodoxy by questioning whether being pro-gun is consistent with being pro-life. Rev. Schenck is shocked and perplexed by the reactions of his long-time friends and colleagues who warn him away from this complex, politically explosive issue. Along the way, he meets Lucy McBath, the mother of Jordan Davis, an unarmed teenager who was murdered in Florida. ARMOR follows these unlikely allies through their trials of conscience, heartbreak and rejection, as they bravely attempt to make others consider America’s gun culture through a moral lens.

ALL people deserve the right to live in peace.

    Jeff, Thanks for posting.  I note two things 1) when I went to be the “first to like this post” it asked me for my WordPress login information when I expected it to do a FB like onto my page. 2) there is a link on the bottom left to “register for free Under the Gun tickets”.  These don’t detract from the post, simply housekeeping I think. Appreciate your quickly getting the post up,George George Higgins, Executive Director Emeritus Delaware Coalition Against Gun Violence Proud Principal OrganizerMovement for a Culture of Peace
