Did you watch Ted Olson’s interview on FOX News Sunday with Chris Wallace? Consider the irony: Olson is a conservative legal giant who argued the winning side of the recent Prop 8 decision in California. Watch the video below and weigh his argument.
BIG QUESTION #1: Does the U. S. Constitution grant a “fundamental right” to marriage: yes or no? If yes, show evidence.
BIG QUESTION #2: In his most radical statement, California Judge Vaughn Walker said that “gender no longer forms an essential part of marriage; marriage under law is a union of equals.” Is there a legal–not sociological, political, ethical, biblical, or theological–defense for the gender complementarity of marriage? If so, provide details.
