Bill Moyers Journal: Historian Thomas Cahill / Archbishop Desmond Tutu

“We as a country are actually sacrificing children to an evil God,” says historian and death penalty critic Thomas Cahill. In an interview that takes viewers from the Roman Coliseum to death row in Texas, Bill Moyers talks with the author of How the Irish Saved Civilization about capital punishment and its place in American culture. Discussing his most recent project—a book about a young defendant put to death after a questionable trial—Cahill asks us to acknowledge a brutality that lives as much “inside of us” as it does in our legal system. Also on the program: an essay on Pakistan and a look at a past interview with Archbishop Desmond Tutu. Broadcast dates: November 9, 2007, and December 28, 2007. (58 minutes)
