Sarah Posner (sarahposner.com, God's Profits) and Matthew Lee Anderson (Mere Orthodoxy, Earthen Vessels)

On The Posner Show, Sarah talks with Matt about the fallout from Gov. Brewer’s veto of Arizona’s SB 1062. Matt explains why, contrary to what many conservatives claim, the failure of the bill was not an example of persecution of Christians. Are religious institutions poised to lose their tax-exempt status over gay rights? They debate whether photographers should be able to refuse service to gay couples, and Matt explains why, if he were a photographer, he would refuse. If the Supreme Court strikes down bans on same-sex marriage, will conservative Christians retreat to monastic-like communities? Sarah and Matt debate whether marriage is a broken institution. Plus: Is the persecution narrative a winning strategy for the Christian right?
