Thursday night (February 19) there was a panel discussion to discuss issues related to the Christian and LGBT communities. The discussion, one in a five part series sponsored by Cru (Campus Crusade for Christ) about differing worldviews, brought together 4 Cru panelists and 4 LGBT panelists. Before a large crowd, composed of ~2/3 Cru and ~1/3 LGBT members, each group was posed five “difficult” questions by the other group, and each group had a sum of 45 minutes to answer these questions (~9 minutes per question). After having alternated between groups to answer each of their five questions, and after a ten minute break, there was a one hour question and answer session consisting of questions taken from the audience via text message.
This panel discussion is worthy of multiple blog postings, so I will be addressing aspects of the event as follows:
Questions asked of each panel by other panel
Questions asked of each panel by the audience
How LGBT performed well
How Cru performed well
How LGBT performed poorly
How Cru performed poorly
That’s right, we have a lot to discuss!
