On encountering victims of the tragedy Taylor says:

As the debate surrounding the bombings in Boston – and the subsequent investigation – grows to include everything from Miranda rights to potential death penalty, on Tuesday evening "Piers Morgan Live" invited Arnold Schwarzenegger to offer his perspective.

Joining Piers Morgan live and in studio as part of the program's recently created "In The Chair" segment, the former California governor offered a firm position:

"When it comes to the death penalty, yes, I believe in the death penalty," noted the bodybuilding champion turned actor turned politician.

Piers Morgan Live: Suze Orman and author Ryan Anderson debate same-sex marriage

Tonight with a live studio audience "Piers Morgan Live" welcomed financial guru Suze Orman to share her insights on everything from to same-sex marriage to taxes and Tiger Woods.

Engaging in a passionate debate with conservative author Ryan Anderson about same-sex marriage, Anderson explains why he doesn’t support same sex marriage, and more importantly, feels the government shouldn’t have a role in defining marriage:

"I want the right to marry to be for everyone. The question is 'what is marriage?' I think that marriage is intrinsically, what it is, is a union of a man and woman, a husband and a wife, a mother and a father." "But I think all adults should be free to live and to love as they choose.... You don't necessarily need the government calling your adult relationship a marriage."

Orman, meanwhile, who’s married to her partner, and openly supports same-sex marriage, offers her response:

"I feel compassion for you, and I'll tell you why." "I know that you believe very strongly what you believe, but I also know that you're very, very uneducated in how it really, really works. And I believe from the bottom of my heart that if you really, really understood why the government does need to get involved, why it does need to be legal on a federal level, if you really understood that, there is no way that you would sit there and say what you are saying right now."

Steubenville Victim's Attorney Speaks to CNN's Piers Morgan

Last night Bob Fitzsimmons, the attorney of the 16 year old girl that was raped by two Steubenville, Ohio football players spoke tonight with CNN’s Piers Morgan. Speaking about Ma’lik Richmond’s apology in a courtroom yesterday he said this:

“It was a very emotionally-packed moment that occurred in that courtroom, where watching this young boy suffer once he realized what the punishment, and what had happened at that point.. It was hard to watch anybody suffer, a human being like that. And I think everybody in that courtroom was significantly moved. It was those emotions that moved everybody there. Not that that was right or acceptable or forgiving at that point, but to see the pain that he had caused himself and others.”

Fitzsimmons was asked about his client’s current state of mind after the verdict:

“She has not at this point forgiven anybody for what she’s been through, the terrible ordeal…People need to wake up and do the right thing at this point and accept what’s been decided by the judge.”

Rick Santorum: "The biggest problem with the Catholic Church is it's run by human beings"

As Catholics around the world celebrate a newly elected pope, last night "Piers Morgan Live" invited Rick Santorum to share his reactions and insights to an event watched worldwide.

"I was teary-eyed when I saw," said the former Republic presidential candidate, in describing the first appearance of Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio now known as Pope Francis. "It's an incredibly moving moment, and to see the humility of this man – obviously, a man who is very much of the people, exactly as some of your commentators were saying – exactly what the Church needs right now, is someone who focuses on holiness, focuses on the mission of the Church which is to serve God, and serve His people here on Earth, and it seems like [that's] what Pope Francis has in mind."

"What do you imagine his idea of reformation may be?" Piers asked the former senator.

"What we're talking about here is the operation of the Church. The biggest problem with the Catholic Church is it's run by human beings," noted Santorum. "It's fallible in the sense that people in those organizations make mistakes and they do things the wrong way."

Piers Morgan Live: Christine Quinn on the NYC Soda Ban Fizzle

Tonight, Piers Morgan Live welcomed Christine Quinn on the heels of the announcement she's running for mayor. She offered up her insight on today’s news that Mayor Bloomberg’s limit on big sugary drinks was blocked by a New York judge.

“The soda ban isn’t one of his proposals in this area that I support. Because my fear is with issues around food and obesity, if you say no, people have almost a reflex reaction to do it, to go get it.”

“My fear is, my belief is, that with food related issues, which are different, which are more complicated. Because unlike smoking, which you can stop, and continue existing, you have to interact with food at least three times a day.”
