Here’s some of the reaction to the upcoming November 1st debate between Dr. Michael Brown and Rabbi Shmuley Boteach on Is Homosexuality America’s Greatest Moral Crisis?:
From Jeff Johnston of Focus on the Family:
On Monday, November 1, Dr. Brown and Rabbi Shmuley Boteach will debate the question: Is homosexuality America’s greatest moral crisis? The event is available on the Internet via a live webcast. Rabbi Boteach recently had an article – with a very different perspective on homosexuality – published in the The Jerusalem Post and The Wall Street Journal.
With these two scholarly and savvy communicators, it should be a lively and interesting discussion.
From Rhiannon Bowman on the Charlotte Creative Loafing Blog (a link will not be provided due to the extreme vulgarity directed at Dr. Brown later in the article):
Michael Brown loathes homosexuals, and he wants you to, too. Which is, of course, exactly the opposite of what Jesus would do, but never mind the minor details.
In slightly positive news, Brown’s announced he’s ready to debate the issue with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, who is joining him in his crusade of intolerance to offer the Jewish view on homosexuality and why, maybe — just maybe — we should stop bashing gays. Or, at least, he admits to having gay friends … which is one step closer to the reality that every human deserves the chance to find and foster love, regardless of what it looks like.
Rather than point out all the blatant falsehoods and logical fallacies in this short bit of text, we’ll just let it lie (pun intended), and hope that Rhiannon will actually watch the debate (whether live or online), and give a fair report afterward. An email will be sent out shortly inviting her to the debate.
