While you watch the Oscars

 | 

On Interfaith Voices every week, we scan the news and upcoming events and ask, “Is there a religion angle to this story?”

When the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia were in the news, for example, we produced a feature on the Russian Orthodox Church and its important political role in Putin’s administration.

This week, it’s the Oscars. And my senior producer for Interfaith Voices, Laura Kwerel, who is Jewish, asked quite innocently, “Have you ever heard of the Legion of Decency?”  

Vatican sex, money scandals subject of PBS documentary

 | 

PBS’ award winning news and documentary program, “Frontline,” is to air tonight (Feb. 25) “Secrets of the Vatican,” from British director Antony Thomas and co-producer Jason Berry, a name that should be well-known to NCR readers.

Most PBS stations will broadcast the show Tuesday, February 25, at 9 p.m. eastern time, but check your local TV listings to get the correct time.
