|UPC presents "A Civil Debate" Jan. 25|
The University Program Council (UPC) is sponsoring “A Civil Debate: Is Same Sex Marriage Good for Society?” at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 25, in the Memorial Union Ballroom. The debate will take place between Glenn T. Stanton, senior analyst for marriage and sexuality and the director of social research and cultural affairs at Focus on the Family and John Corvino, philosophy professor, Wayne State University in Detroit, Mich. While these men have opposing views, they agree that “controversial issues demand civil discussion, not personal attacks, and so challenge each other’s arguments, not each other’s motives.” During their debate they will address these sub-topics: needs of children, the complementarity (sic) of the sexes, the alleged slippery-slope towards polygamy and polyamory (sic), and whether same-sex marriage is a civil-rights issue. For further information about this debate, visit their agent's, Kirkland Productions, web site at
