Government and Marriage Debate: November 16, 2013

I will be participating in a debate this Saturday at 7:00 pm EST (November 16, 2013) at Patrick Henry College in Purcellville, Virginia. The debate is hosted by the Wilberforce Society, and the topic is “Government and Marriage.” More specifically, should the government define marriage to be between one man and one woman? I’ll be defending the negative — that government should not have that power. It should be a really fun event. My fellow debater will be Dr. Allan Carlson of the Howard Center For Family, Religion, and Society. I am confident that we will all be able to learn from each other.

If you’re in the area, feel free to join us (I think it is open to the public). The debate will be held in the Student Lounge of the Barbara Hodel Center, located at 10 Patrick Henry Circle, Purcellville, VA 20132.

I am uncertain at this point if the debate will be recorded and/or streamed live, but stay tuned to this post and I will update with additional details as they come.

Lastly, please pray that I can present the best case for why we cannot trust the government to be any better a steward or regulator of “marriage” than they are a steward of our economy, health, or security. As always, thank you for your support of the efforts of LibertarianChristians.com!

UPDATE: I am told that the event will be live-streamed, click here at 7pm EST on November 16 to watch. Hopefully the recording will be made available following the event…
