The West Wing
19-05-2018
Duration: 14 mins 21 secs
A segment from NBC's "The West Wing" has recently been receiving attention in the media because of it's relevance to the US Supreme court ruling on gay marriage. In this segment, the writers for the show employ several straw-man arguments to attack God's law in an attempt to portray His commandments as ridiculous and outdated. In this installment of the Answering Atheists series we will refute these erroneous claims and show how God's laws are a blessing to those who keep them.
