"Seemingly in the blink of an eye, same-sex 'marriage' (SSM) has gone from being a radical new idea to an inevitable fact of life in the West. Yet even as its proponents increasingly pressure Christians to submit to the new definition (or else), we believe the fight isn't over yet. In 'How to Talk About Marriage and Same-Sex Unions', Trent Horn (Persuasive Pro-Life) throws a rescue line to anyone who wants to make a good case for marriage but can't seem to find the right way to do it. You probably know the approaches that don't work--for example, 'Because the Bible says so,' or 'Let's just get the government out of marriage completely.' In this presentation, Trent shows the weakness of these and other arguments that rely on appeals to religion or tradition or that fail to get the core issue of what marriage is. In place of these ineffective approaches, Trent offers concrete strategies for simplifying the debate over marriage, showing you now to avoid the common traps set by SSM enthusiasts and offering a powerful and intelligent case for one-man, one-woman marriage that any reasonable person, regardless of religion, must reckon with. Along the way he gives specific tips for dealing with common objections and counterarguments. Have you ever had someone tell you 'love is love, and that's all that matters,' or that opposing SSM is like opposing interracial marriage? Trent shows you how to deal smartly and charitably with these and other specious charges. Watch 'How to Talk About Marriage and Same-Sex Unions and never again be stuck without answers to one of the most important questions of our age!"
