Conservative on a Hot Tin Roof

The lawsuit by the Center for Inquiry focuses on the role of religion in Indiana's marriage rules and does not mention the issue of same-sex marriage.

On the heels of President Obama voicing his support for same-sex marriage and a lawsuit here in Indiana seeking to overturn our marriage laws, I was asked to debate marriage and family policies with an IU Sociology Professor and a representative of the Center for Inquiry at the Bloomington NPR affiliate on the IU campus.  Needless to say, I was the only traditional marriage supporter in the room and the callers were generally against me. 

However, I believe conservatives must take our message into hostile territory.  We have the truth on our side.  Increasingly Americans are separating themselves based on worldview. Where we live, work, what we watch and listen to.  God's design for marriage and family is important.  If Christians who hold to Biblical truth are not willing to take the message of truth and hope into these areas, who will? 

Take a listen and let me know what you think:
