It sounds like the setup for a joke, but while there were plenty of laughs we were quite serious about the whole thing.  And CBN was there to watch.

A few months back my friend John Corvino and I did a public discussion on many of the questions relating to gay marriage.  Not only is John a published academic and a prominent participant in the gay marriage debates, but he is also something of a Youtube rockstar.  His video series on the arguments around gay marriage is way more engaging and fun than the series I’ve been cranking out, even if it’s wrong in nearly every way.  (That’s a joke.  He’s right on one or two things.)

Anyways, the whole thing was a fun and interesting conversation hosted by my friends at Midrash.  And the 700 Club was there to report on it, which means that yes, yes I have made my 700 Club debut.  You can hear me make one or two points in the video, but have mercy:  I was barely holding it together due to a sudden onslaught of pneumonia.

I have little to add beyond the video other than to note that the whole thing wasn’t (unfortunately) recorded.  But if you’re interested in having John and I out to repeat the scrum, we’d be happy to take up other offers.

  1. Thanks for showing it can be done. It’d be nice to see more. Too bad more of the actual discussion wasn’t recorded. Thanks!
