Conservative gay law professor and columnist Dale Carpenter debated gay marriage with Glenn Stanton of Focus on the Family on Sept. 16 at the University of Minnesota.

While providing support to Focus on the Family’s exgay “Love Won Out” road show, Exodus official Randy Thomas attended the debate and offered his reaction on his personal blog.

Thomas says he was “surprised” when “liberal” students stood up for Stanton’s free-speech rights and shouted down a disruptive gay member of the audience. (XGW finds nothing surprising about this.)

Thomas also compliments Carpenter for defending tolerance of antigay views — but Thomas does not clearly defend tolerance of gay-tolerant views.
