[This show was originally broadcast on May 17, 2004, the day Massachusetts legalized marriages of gay couples. It is being replayed today at listeners’ request.]
Mark Debates Glenn Stanton,
Focus on the Family ‘s Director of Social Research and Cultural Affairs and Senior Analyst for Marriage and Sexuality. Mr. Stanton is the anti-gay-marriage expert at one of the leading interest groups in America that opposes giving gay couples equal civil rights to straight couples.

As you can imagine, Mark and Glenn had quite a debate.
