Season 20, Episode 21 of 52

Religion and the New Trump Administration - As Donald Trump takes office, faith-based groups continue speaking out. Some are supporting him and urging him to take up their issues. Others are raising strong concerns about Trump's appointments, statements and potential policies. Host Bob Abernethy talks about religion and the new administration with Managing Editor Kim Lawton, Religion News Service Editor-in-Chief Jerome Socolovsky, and Professor Stephen Schneck, director of the Institute for Policy Research & Catholic Studies at the Catholic University of America. Profile, Terry Waite - In the early '90's, Terry Waite, a hostage negotiator for the Archbishop of Canterbury, was himself captured by terrorists in Lebanon. He was freed eventually, after nearly five years alone, in the dark, blindfolded and chained to a radiator. Back in England he has been able to write about his ordeal. His latest book of poetry is Out of the Silence, and he told Lucky Severson recently how he learned in captivity to be compassionate and listen to an inner voice-in spite of his ordeal.
