Video: Basic rights as a panel debate: Oregon edition

by Jeremy Hooper

I've had the pleasure of seeing Basic Rights Oregon's Jeana Frazzini speak, and she's quite awesome.

Dennis Richardson's largely faith-motivated attempts to further obfuscate the matter (even if the latter two's faith views are purposely geared towards a civil framework):
