Glenn Loury (Brown University) and Glenn Loury II (Just a Bloody Blog)

On a very special edition of The Glenn Show, two guys named Glenn Loury, father and son, introduce themselves. The son asks his dad why he is so cool towards President Obama. The father explains his resentment of Obama’s use of racial identity to foster his political ambitions. Glenn the son isn’t very happy with Obama either, but think Romney’s election would be a disaster for the country. The two then discuss religion and gay rights. The gay son asks why his father, an evident agnostic, attends a church which does not support marriage equality. But Glenn the son objects to what he sees as the rampant homophobia of many black American Christian communities. The elder Glenn defends the black church against this charge, and asks his son for patience; the younger, impatient, Glenn passionately explains why he can’t wait.
