Dan Savage picked up the gaunlet and has gone one step further in trying to set up a debate with NOM’s Brian Brown, who earlier this month, angerly challenged Savage to one but has not said a word about it, or responded to Dan’s acceptance since
If you don’t remember Brown stated:
Let me lay down a public challenge to Dan Savage right here and now: You want to savage the Bible? Christian morality? Traditional marriage? Pope Benedict? I’m here, you name the time and the place and let’s see what a big man you are in a debate with someone who can talk back. It’s easy to make high-school girls cry by picking on them. Let’s pick on someone our own size!
I’m here, any time, any place you name, Dan Savage. You will find out how venal and ridiculous your views of these things are if you dare to accept a challenge.
Well even though Brian Brown could only dream of ever being Dan Savages size. Danhas now named a place. And the place is such an unintimidating venue it doesn’t give Brian Brown much room to wiggle his massive girth out of.
Dan’s suggestion for the debate?
His kitchen table!
““So, what I’d like to do is invite you to dinner. Bring the wife. My husband will be there. I will hire a video crew and we will video sort of an after dinner debate. You have to acknowledge my humanity by accepting my hospitality, and I have to acknowledge yours by extending my hospitality to you.” Dan said.
The debate would be an hour long and would be released on YouTube, unedited. Dan also wants to invite New York Times journalist Mark Oppenheimer to ensure it’s “fair.”
Now the only question is will Brian Brown accept? Or will Dan and his husband be eating alone that night on a big fat chicken?
