BATON ROUGE, La (NBC33) - A protest was held against a speaking engagement by Tony Perkins, the former head of the Louisiana Family Forum.
Perkins was at the university to speak to a class on public administration, but several people outside the classroom take issue with Perkins' stand on traditional marriage -meaning one man married to one woman.
Protestors believe the Baton Rouge native is too extreme and should not have been invited to speak.
Perkins says he's glad we live in a country where everyone can speak freely and have an open debate on the issues, even if they disagree. He further goes on to state that there should be an dialogue to exchange views.
