Hurricane Katrina Tenth Anniversary - Next week marks a decade since Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, leaving a path of death and destruction. Over the years, Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly has reported about the ongoing impact of Katrina on churches and people of faith. In a special report, Managing Editor Kim Lawton returns to New Orleans to see what's happening with some of the people and places that we've covered. The Dalai Lama - In an exclusive interview in Dharamsala, India, the Dalai Lama tells Fred de Sam Lazaro that he is focused on his moral responsibility as an advocate for world peace, that all major religions teach the practice of compassion, love, forgiveness and tolerance and that he would like to see a common ethics curriculum taught in schools. He also says he is not concerned about how his successor will be chosen, or even if there will be a successor.

Previously aired Sunday August 16th
America's Incarcerated - President Obama has launched a new campaign to reform America's criminal justice system. Republicans as well as a diverse coalition of people of faith across the spectrum are also calling for reforms. The United States has more people in prison than any other country in the world - more than 2-million Americans. That's more than five times what it was back in the 1970's, and a disproportionate number of them are African Americans. Why are so many Americans in prison? And why is it that so many of them are minorities? Tim O'Brien reports. The "T" in "LGBT" - Caitlyn Jenner's very public transition has generated new attention to the lives and needs of transgender people. While it remains controversial, more and more churches and faith-based institutions are trying to minister to the transgender community. Judy Valente reports from Chicago about one church doing just that.

Episode #1849
Previously aired Sunday August 9th
Evangelicals and LGBT Acceptance - In the wake of the US Supreme Court's decision legalizing same-sex marriage across the country, evangelical Christians remain among the staunchest opponents of the practice. But Kim Lawton looks at how growing acceptance of LGBT issues in American society is posing new challenges for the evangelical community. Rabbi Jonathan Sacks - Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, eminent scholar and author, retired after serving 22 years as the Chief Rabbi for the UK. He is teaching in the U.S. this year and leading a global religious response to religious violence. In an interview with anchor Bob Abernethy, Sacks says, "Religion causes violence whenever we confuse piety and power." He believes that when groups seek power in the name of piety they do great harm. They injure God's world. Our Lady of Guadalupe Basilica - August 15th is the Feast of the Assumption, when Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodox and some other Christians commemorate the belief that the Virgin Mary was bodily taken into Heaven at the end of her earthly life. The most popular Catholic pilgrimage destination in the world is the Our Lady of Guadalupe Basilica in Mexico, which honors Mary's appearance to a native American peasant in the 1500s. Fred de Sam Lazaro visits the shrine and reports on the devotion of the pilgrims who visit there.

Episode #1848
Previously aired Sunday August 2nd
The Aga Khan - Around the world there are approximately 15 million Ismaili Muslims, a sub-group of the Shia branch of Islam, which is distinct from the much larger Sunni branch. After the death of the Prophet Muhammad, Sunnis said the Prophet's successors should be an outstanding religious leader. Shias, on the other hand, said their leader should be a direct descendant of the Prophet, and that split has fractured Islam ever since, often violently. The leader of the Ismailis is the Aga Khan, an enormously wealthy, little-known philanthropist who has made it his mission to fight poverty and encourage peace around the world with schools and hospitals, the arts and hope. Recently, the Aga Khan was in Canada, where he granted a rare interview to Lucky Severson. The Singing Monks of Nursia - In Italy, in the town in which St. Benedict was born, there are Benedictine monks led by American Father Cassian Folsom. The monks gather nine times a day, every day, to worship God with their Gregorian chants and other prayers. Father Cassian spoke with Judy Valente about music and prayer -- and brewing beer, which is how the monks support themselves. Also, Father Cassian spoke about how he views the return of the cancer he thought he had overcome.

Previously aired Sunday July 26th
Religion in Cuba - As the U.S. and Cuba reopen their embassies, what is the state of religion in Cuba after 50 years of repressive Communist rule? Dan Lothian reports from Cuba ahead of the Pope's September visit on the wary but emerging signs of religious life there, and the growing hope that Cuba's younger generation can somehow be introduced to the religious practice that many have never known. Women's Mosque of America - American Muslim women can feel marginalized at worship services in traditional mosques. Only men are allowed to lead the prayers and preach the sermons, and women are usually seated in separate areas. Correspondent Kim Lawton reports on a new project, the Women's Mosque of America, believed to be the first female-only mosque in the U.S. Participants say creating a space where women lead empowers them to influence the broader community. Hindu Coming-of-age Ceremony - A Hindu coming-of-age ceremony, or "sacred thread" ceremony, for a nine-year-old boy at a temple in Adelphi, Maryland. Presiding over the two-day event was Dr. Siva Subramanian, a Georgetown University neonatologist and a Hindu leader in the greater Washington, DC area.

Previously aired Sunday July 19th
A Different Islamic School - Centuries ago, family operated Muslim schools - madrasas - taught not only Arabic and the Koran but also a wider curriculum. Then, in recent years, many madrasas became politicized and even radicalized -breeding grounds for violent extremism. Fred de Sam Lazaro travelled to predominantly-Muslim Pakistan and visited one family's madrasa, in Karachi, that is trying against strong opposition to restore what many say all Islam needs: giving male and female students a broad general education. Singing in a Choir -Volunteers in the Choral Society at New York's Grace Church tell Bob Faw what choral singing does for them. They say it overcomes hardship, feeds the soul, creates community, serves as a workout, shrinks the ego and just plain makes everyone happy. Belief and Practice: Eid al-Fitr - This week, with the sighting of the new moon, Muslims around the world will observe Eid al-Fitr, the three-day festival marking the end of Ramadan. During the holy month of Ramadan, Muslims who were able fasted from sunrise to sunset. Imam Johari Abdul-Malik, director of community outreach for the Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Falls Church, Virginia, describes the rituals and spiritual significance of this important holiday.

Previously aired Sunday July 12th
Moving Beyond the Confederate Flag - As South Carolina continued debate this week over whether to fly the Confederate flag at the State Capitol, many African-Americans are urging the nation to also examine deeper issues such as systemic injustice and ongoing racism. Host Bob Abernethy and Managing Editor Kim Lawton talk with Harold Dean Trulear, associate professor of Applied Theology and director of the Doctor of Ministry program at Howard University School of Divinity. Interracial Diversity in a Black Church - At First Corinthian Baptist Church in Harlem, a historically African-American congregation, there's a small but growing number of white members. One of them is even on the church staff, in charge of community outreach. The white members told David Tereshchuk they feel at home - not as visitors but as fellow-worshippers, as one said, "tuning in to God." American Eye Surgeons in Vietnam - A "flying eye hospital" has taken American surgeons to 92 countries, among them Vietnam, where they heal and teach others to heal, too. Fred de Sam Lazaro reports from the airfield at Hue, once a battlefield in the Vietnam War. One American surgeon told him, "Every life matters, and every life matters equally."

Episode #1844
Previously aired Sunday July 5th
Can charity do harm? - People of faith consider it their religious duty to give to the poor. But Lucky Severson reports on a Presbyterian psychologist in Atlanta, Robert Lupton, who thinks some charity can do harm. He preaches helping the very poor to learn to help themselves, and what is called "re-neighboring" -- encouraging the well-off to come live alongside the poor. Ethics of Gene Editing - There is a new genetic editing technique called CRISPR/Cas9 which has the potential to fix devastating illnesses. It allows scientists to identify a single defective gene among 30,000 and then cut and repair it. Correspondent Betty Rollin speaks with George Church of Harvard Medical School about its therapeutic potential and with ethicist Marcy Darnovsky of the Center for Genetics and Society who has called for a moratorium using gene editing on human embryos. Darnovsky is concerned about gene editing's safety especially since changes made to a human embryo would not only affect that individual but all of his or her descendants and also has ethical concerns that the same gene editing technique used to cure diseases, could potentially allow wealthy parents to genetically enhance their offspring. Religious Reaction to Same-Sex Marriage Ruling - Faith groups continue to analyze the implications of last week's landmark Supreme Court decision legalizing same-sex marriage in all 50 states. Host Bob Abernethy and Managing Editor Kim Lawton discuss the range of religious reactions, from those who are celebrating the decision to those who fear it could infringe on their religious liberty.

Previously aired Sunday June 28th
Healing Moral Wounds of War - 2.6 million U.S. service members have returned from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan-the largest number since the Vietnam War. In her new book Afterwar, Georgetown University professor Nancy Sherman argues that many of them suffer from moral wounds, a complex set of emotional injuries that are often separate from post-traumatic stress. In an interview with Managing Editor Kim Lawton, Sherman explores these injuries and says the entire nation has a "sacred obligation" to help service members heal. Lawton also talks with a veteran who suffered moral injury. Former Mormons - In recent years a number of young U.S. members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, the Mormons, have left the Church. One reason, many of them say, is because they no longer believe in the accuracy of some of the Church history they learned as children. Over the past year, Church officials have commissioned straightforward essays about many of these teachings and posted them on the Church's website. The results have been mixed, as Deborah Potter reports. She spoke with Church officials about what they hope the postings will achieve and also with former Mormons trying to adapt to the world outside the Church.
