Much could probably be written by way of critique after watching this piece but that is not my aim. I simply want to make a couple of comments that might serve as transferable concepts as you engage the culture.
1. We have to commend Joel for pointing to the authority of scripture. Without that, we have nothing to say. As Al Mohler has said, "if the Bible doesn't say anything about homosexuality, then is doesn't say anything about anything."
2. The question of "Who are you to say?" is quite self-defeating. In this context Joel could have easily exposed this self-imploding logic by simply saying, "Well, who are YOU to say that my beliefs about homosexuality are wrong?". If it is wrong to disagree with someones views then why is Mr. Reporter passionately doing just that and with a straight face? The "who are you to say" argument just doesn't accomplish anything other than completely shut down conversation. We should seek to give and receive reasons for someone's beliefs instead of discrediting the other person with an easy "who are you to say" question.
