John Rankin, president of the Theological Education Institute (TEI) in Hartford, believes that sexual intimacy should be reserved for one man and one woman in covenantal marriage as defined in Genesis 1-2.

John was raised an agnostic Unitarian, a secular humanist, before his conversion to an evangelical Protestant faith in 1967. He holds graduate degrees in theology from Gordon-Conwell (M.Div.) and Harvard (Th.M.), hosts the Mars Hill Forum series on campuses nationwide, and is author of the three-volume set, First the Gospel, Then Politics... He and his wife have been married 23 years and have four children.

Debra Haffner, past president of the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS) in New York City, believes that non-marital and homosexual relationships can be as moral, ethical and healthy as heterosexual monogamous marriage.

Debra holds an M.P.H. from the Yale School of Medicine, and in twelve years has built SIECUS into a nationwide organization promoting sexuality education in the public schools. She is currently a student at Union Theological Seminary. With more than 50 articles published in professional journals, her second book is: From Diapers to Dating: A Parent's Guide to Raising Sexually Healthy Children. She and her husband have been married 18 years and have two children.
