"Armor Of Light" will broadcast nationally on PBS Tuesday, May 10. It's a movie that shows the heart-wrenching fight of Lucy McBath after the murder of teenager Jordan Davis, and one pastor's journey to explore the pro-gun and pro-life arguments.
The compelling documentary follows Reverend Rob Schenck, founder of the Christian outreach program Faith and Action, on his quest to start a dialogue with his Christian brothers and sisters on gun laws and how they align with what the Bible teaches.
McBath, who is actively fighting for stricter gun laws after her unarmed teenage son was shot and killed on November 2012, is a big part of "Armor of Light." The grieving mother, also a devout Christian, vowed to fight for stricter screenings for those who want to acquire fire arms. She believes it's what God has instructed her to do after losing her own son to unwarranted gun violence. more >>

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham has warned of grave consequences if Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump succeeds in becoming president, from opening the door to another 9/11 terror attack, to "destroying conservatism."
"There's a civil war going on in the Republican Party, obviously. John [Boehner] and I are very close friends, but he's embracing Donald Trump, and I am not," Graham, who dropped out of the GOP race in the early running, told CBS' "Face the Nation" in an interview.
His comments referred to former House Speaker John Boehner's backing of Trump, where Boehner attacked Texas senator and Trump rival Ted Cruz, calling him "Lucifer in the flesh." more >>
Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi on Sunday ordered the arrest of hundreds of supporters of Shiite Muslim cleric Moqtada al-Sadr who stormed Iraq's parliament Saturday evening and camped out, demanding reforms in the political quota system that was introduced after the 2003 U.S.-led invasion.
A United Nations spokesman and western diplomats said their compounds inside the Green Zone were locked down, according to Reuters, which also said some of the demonstrators set up tents at a nearby parade ground.
The Green Zone houses the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq and many embassies, including the U.S. Embassy. more >>
A senior defense official revealed Thursday that the U.S.-led air coalition against ISIS has incinerated an estimated $500 million worth of the terror group's slush fund, seriously hampering the group's ability to pay existing fighters and attract new ones.
The official who asked not to be named in a USA Today report said the coalition has been targeting ISIS's large stores of cash, held mostly in U.S. dollars in warehouses and distribution sights for about 15 months now. He said the coalition estimated they may have destroyed up to $1.3 billion but felt $500 million was the most plausible estimate. The coalition has also managed to slash oil revenues of ISIS by an estimated 50 percent.
ISIS, according to the report, has been forced to ration fuel and cut pay in half for fighters and government officials in regions that the group still controls. more >>
The Islamic State terror group is reportedly planning to carry out bomb attacks across Europe's beaches this summer. NATO has separately warned that the radicals are also looking into using biological and nuclear weapons in their attacks.
British media has said that IS (also known as ISIS and ISIL) militants are putting together plans to attack tourists at holiday resorts across Europe this summer, planning to disguise themselves as ice cream and T-shirt sellers. MailOnline noted that the radicals are aiming at Spanish, French, and Italian resorts the most, and are planting suicide vests and bombs under sun loungers.
The information apparently stems from Italian secret service agents, who have a credible source in Africa keeping them updated on the plans of the jihadists. more >>
