The heavyweight match of the century has finally been given a ring!
In this week's Savage Love podcast, Dan Savage gives Brian Brown an answer for his "anytime, any place you name" request in the Bible debate invitation the NOM leader extended in early May.
So, where and when has Dan decided to take up Brian's request?
Dan has selected his home dinner table as the setting to debate Brian. The gay activist/columnist has also appointed Mark Oppenheimer of the New York Times as moderator and wants to film the entire post-dinner exchange to later release on YouTube, unedited.
"Where? My dining room table. Place? Seattle, Washington. Here's the deal. We [could] fill a room with your screaming partisans and my screaming partisans and we can both fill a room with our respective peanut galleries and I think both of us have a little bit of grandstander in souls and we will work that and I think that will create more heat than light. And so what I'd like to do is challenge you to come to my house for dinner. Bring the wife. My husband will be there. and I will hire a video crew and we will videotape sort of an after dinner debate."
"And the trick here is you have to knowledge my humanity by accepting my hospitality and I have to acknowledge yours by extending my hospitality to you."
So that Brian won't be able to back out of the venue selection because "filthy homosezzuals have touched my food," Dan's straight neighbor has offered to cook the meal.
"Are we on? Ball's in your court," Dan ends his anticipated announcement by saying.
What do you think about Dan's well-thought venue for the debate?
