Rome, Georgia, experience continued: I gave presentations at two Journalism classes at Berry College. After talking a bit, I turned each into an open forum session. One of the questions was what I thought was the most important issue leading up to 2008. I responded that I was “Pro-Life across the board.” And in the wake of the just released U.N. report on climate change, I said this may well become the most pressing “Pro-Life” issue. That is, if global warming continues to lead to more and more droughts, famine, super-charged hurricanes and typhoons… the death tolls will be staggering and, ultimately, the planet may no longer be able to sustain life at all… After the classes, I was interviewed by a reporter from the campus newspaper. I said at the core of our platform was a “What Would Jesus Do?” philosophy. A reporter from the campus television station asked me what my stance on gay marriage was. I pointed to an excerpt I had read in class from some writing of Rome, Georgia’s Tom Farmer. He says of practicing homosexuality: “Here the virtue of love runs uncecked into lifeless sexuality and moral relativism. This is a fundamentally religious issue for me because marriage is a fundamentally religious institution. It is meant to mirror the procreative union of Christ with his Church that will bring about God’s kingdom.” I told the reporter that I lined up with this as well.
