About the Film
This film documents the journey of an evangelical minister trying to find the moral strength to preach about the growing toll of gun violence in America. “The Armor of Light” tracks Rev. Rob Schenck, anti-abortion activist and lobbyist on the political far right, who breaks with orthodoxy by questioning whether being pro-gun is consistent with being pro-life. Along the way, Rev. Schenck meets Lucy McBath, the mother of Jordan Davis, an unarmed teenager who was murdered in Florida and whose story has cast a spotlight on “Stand Your Ground” laws. Also an evangelical Christian, McBath’s personal testimony compels Rev. Schenck to reach out to pastors around the country to discuss the moral and ethical response to gun violence. The film is a courageous look at a fractured political culture and an assertion that it is, indeed, possible for people to come together across deep party lines to find common ground.
