Going to do a little spot on Indiana Newsdesk tomorrow down in Bloomington. Yes, I know; it's very much like leaning into a left hook. However, the way it has been explained to me is the host wants to have a sit-down discussion (a whopping 3-4 minutes) with someone who could talk about how religion plays into the current Indiana judges' ruling on same-sex marriage and "the fact that same-sex couples are getting married in Indiana changes how churches will function." Now, I actually didn't know that the ruling would change how churches will function, so I'm eager to hear from the host of a PBS television show exactly how this will pay out.
The show's producer went on to explain, "We are hoping this discussion, which would be just with yourself and our host Sara Wittmeyer, could go beyond the partisan politics, etc. and really get at what the cultural and legal shifts mean for our everyday lives from a religious perspective. Questions would be something like, how do churches handle the fact that a lot of young people are more accepting of same-sex relationships? Do you think churches will feel pressure to provide marriage ceremonies to same-sex couples?"
I just hope I can fit it all into 3-4 minutes.
