We had an enjoyable debate on the marriage amendment at Marquette last night. You can read John McAdams' impressions here. The turnout was fantastic and the audience - largely consisting of MU undergrads - was courteous and attentive. In a world where students at an Ivy League institution behaved like a pack of brownshirts and rushed the stage to silence a speaker they did not like, it was really heartening to see an auditorium full of young people who were willing to listen to both sides.
