Notre Dame to host gays-should-just-form-spiritual-friendships panel

by Jeremy Hooper

Next Monday, anti-equality activists Ryan Anderson (who has written that gays must be celibate) and Sherif Girgis (who was recently dismissed from a federal court because his "expert testimony" was simply personal opinion) will join former NOM associate Jennifer Roback Morse (who has made several calls for gay people to not be gay) on a marriage panel at Notre Dame University. Also on the panel will be Ron Belgau, a man who has created an entire website built around the idea that gay people should not act on their gayness and instead just have "spiritual friendships." The details:

A panel discussion on the role of the Catholic Church in the cultural and political debate about marriage will take place at 7 p.m. Monday (March 17) in DeBartolo Hall, Room 101, on the campus of the University of Notre Dame.

The discussion, “Marriage, the Church and the Common Good,” is sponsored by Notre Dame’s Center for Ethics and Culture and several student groups and will include Jennifer Roback Morse, founder and president of the Ruth Institute; Ron Belgau, founder of the website Spiritual Friendship; and Sherif Girgis and Ryan T. Anderson, coauthors, with Robert P. George, of the book “What is Marriage? Man and Woman: A Defense.”

No word if Notre Dame will also host a "Precisely Why These Folks Are Losing All Credibility In This Debate" panel. But that would be redundant, now wouldn't it?
