Talk at Emory and Henry College

I gave a talk at Emory and Henry College on my three loves: love of family, love of Jesus, and love of dogs.

I began the talk with a provocative stab: I live in a country in which legislators in AZ passed a bill that discriminates against me as a part of the tribe LGBTQ; that Uganda's President signed a bill condemning LGBTQ to life in prison, and that Mormons are telling students at Brigham University not to masturbate.

What a time to be alive?

We are on the crest of history unfolding.

What I'm aware of is that the unfolding blurs lines of state, culture, and religion. They are all now enmeshed, and hard to separate.

This is not a time to be silent but to speak out, pointing to the danger of these actions by people here and abroad.
