today after we wrapped up our Culture War Curriculum class in chicago, i was to be hopping on a train and heading to Indiana Wesleyan University to speak in their chapel service tomorrow on building bridges between conservatives and LGBTQ students on their campus.
when IWU alumni pete heck, who is billed as a conservative christian commentator on social and political issues on his radio show (The Pete Heck Show) caught wind of The Marin Foundation being represented on the campus of his alma mater, his team reached out to us and asked if i’d provide him with ‘a phone interview.’
so, of course, i did.
the phone interview went well – although pete was a bit more aggressively antagonistic than any previous interview i’ve had with a radio personality – i felt he allowed me to respond to his questions with an explanation of The Marin Foundation’s philosophy, and listened to my biblical reasoning for our posture and position by reflecting on some examples of the life, teachings and actions of the jesus we both claim to follow.
we didn’t agree, at the end. but that’s not the point.
i was looking forward to listening to the interview once it went live on the air – as it does weekly – on the largest talk radio station in indiana. i was told that would be today.
this morning, i saw pete had tweeted ::
