Over and over again he has made it clear that the marriage and family debate is central -- not peripheral -- to understanding the human person, and defending our human dignity.

That's why I was SO proud of my friend, Connell Friel, President of the Long Island Chapter of the American Family Association, who was on a News 12 debate on homosexual marriage. He was pitted against Lee Nissensohn and Daniel Pinello (seen here) who staged an event at Oyster Bay Town Hall where they went looking for a marriage license they knew they couldn't obtain, along with a few sign-carrying protesters and TV crews. They had the TV News station in their pocket, due to the biased questions asked by interviewer Lea Tyrell, and the fact that 3 out of 4 callers were pro-homosexual marriage. Nisselsohn quoted statistics saying that children are better off living with homosexual parents, and the interviewer didn't question the source of his statistics. Pinello, a professor at John Jay College in New York, tried to use that fact to stop discussion; his opinion was law, according to him.
Connell held his own in these difficult circumstances, and calmly quoted all the right statistics which prove that marriage was made for the procreation and raising of children, and this is THE best way to raise a child. He did well, considering the completely hostile environment which was slanted to make him look like a hate-monger.
I tried to email and call in, but my efforts were in vain. The agenda was set. News 12, like all other news outlets besides Fox News, has bought on to the gay agenda.
