Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly Listings—November 1

Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly is a production of THIRTEEN for WNET. Visit for additional information. This weeks program is fed over PBS on Friday, November 1 at 5:00 p.m. (check local listings).

  • Religion in the 2012 Election -- In the final countdown to next week’s election, both presidential campaigns are shoring up support from their coalitions, including religious coalitions.  Although faith-based outreach hasn’t dominated this campaign, it has remained a key factor.  Managing Editor Kim Lawton looks at the many ways religion has been playing a role in Election 2012.
  • Black Churches and Gay Marriage – On Election Day, four states have same-sex marriage measures on the ballot.  Traditionally, some of the strongest opposition to gay marriage has come from Black churches. However, as Betty Rollin reports, there is now a sharp debate among some African-American ministers over whether that opposition should continue.

Embeddable  versions of new segments become available at on Fridays between noon and 6 p.m. EST
