Kent Dahlberg, Campus minister and member Campus Crusade for Christ

Tom Wilson, Dartmouth graduate, 1966, diversified farmer, decorated Army Captain and Veteran of the Vietnam war.

Mason C. also wrote in and pointed to this piece at the EPPC:

    I finally had a chance to listen to the lecture by Mr. Arkes. Very interesting lecture with some good arguments. People looking to increase their knowledge on how to answer the pro-gay marriage crowd should listen to this audio.

    Mr. Blankenhorn touches on something that I've also found troubling - that in popular culture a celebratory note has been struck about marriage dismantling - divorce parties on "Good Morning America" and such.
