6/14/06: The Risks of Conscience
By Doug Fabrizio
Salt Lake City – Philosophy Professor Jeffrey Nielsen knew the risks when he publicly criticized The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' position on gay marriage. Just four days after his op-ed piece ran in the Salt Lake Tribune, Nielsen - himself an active member of the Church - was in effect fired by BYU. Wednesday on RadioWest, Nielsen joins Doug Fabrizio to talk about what he calls the moral imperatives that compelled him to speak out, and the risks of taking such a stand.
