|Martin Cannon, Jr.|
Tomorrow the United States Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on the issue of whether or not so-called same-sex marriage will become the law of the land. On hand to discuss what’s at stake in this case will be Martin Cannon, Jr. of the Omaha branch of the Thomas More Society. Martin has been an outstanding legal advocate for marriage, life, and free speech and has been involved in many notable cases involving these issues.After Martin, Deacon Mike Manno and Gina Noll will welcome Kelsey Harkness, a news producer at the Daily Signal and the producer of the short clip on the Oregon baker (above) whose family is being forced into bankruptcy over the refusal to bake a wedding cake for a lesbian marriage. The state is recommending a $135,000 fine and Kelsey will comment on how the state has arrived at this figure, as well as the efforts by gay activists to close a “Go Fund It” account
While the Supreme Court hears arguments, we’ll ask the question, “Who are the real bullies?”Join Deacon Mike and Gina every Tuesday at 9 a.m. (CDT) for Faith On Trial on Iowa Catholic Radio 1150 AM; 88.5 & 94.5 FM and streaming at IowaCatholicRadio.com.
