Debate a fellow Christian about a woman's "role" in society.

Peter Heck, a high school history teacher and conservative radio host, gave a commencement speech in which he stated that we "don't need more women CEOs" but rather, for women to understand their greatest role: as wife and mother.

I would like to debate Mr. Heck. He can set the complete terms of our debate on topics (must be related to women), time, venue, etc., but it *must* be open to the public and an unedited recording must be made available online.

Though I think it's more than a little sad that two men would debate the "role" of women in society, I seriously doubt Mr. Heck will understand just how sexist and asinine he's being until a fellow white, straight, cisgender, Christian male explains how incredibly bigoted and destructive his views are to society.

And I'm willing to bet that I have far more knowledge on Scripture (and frankly, history) than Mr. Heck claims to possess.

So, put your money where your mouth is, friend. If God is truly for you, and I'm letting you set the terms for our debate, how can this ever go wrong?

I await your response.

      I strongly suspect Mr. Heck is intimidated by women, and would like to keep us in subservient roles. Perhaps he felt insulted or emasculated by a woman at some time in his life and he feels that all women should pay?

      GOD DOESN'T INTEND FOR WOMEN'S ONLY ROLE TO BE WIFE AND MOTHER! WOMEN HAVE RULED COUNTRIES, AND FOUGHT IN WARS, WITH NO CREDIT I MIGHT ADD, FOR ALL TIME THUS FAR! IT'S TIME FOR THIS MYTH, AND SO MANY OTHER MYTHS, TO BE DISPELLED, IF OUR CULTURE IS EVER TO EVOLVE!

      Females need to know, at a young age, they can be anything they want. If it is to be a housewife/mother awesome, but if to be an astronaut, still awesome and atainable

      Intelligent, caring male feminists can have a great impact and should be supported at every turn!

      We need more women in business. We need more men home taking care of the children
