Fox To Host Marriage Debate Between Ted Olson And Hate Group Head Tony Perkins

Via press release from Fox News:
Both sides in the same-sex marriage debate are looking to the Supreme Court as it decides whether or not to weigh in on the issue. The High Court is set to discuss cases from Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee, and decide whether to rule on petitions challenging state bans on same-sex marriage. We’ll debate what has become a key social issue within the country, exclusively with Ted Olson, former Solicitor General who served as Co-Counsel for the plaintiffs in Virginia’s same-sex marriage case, and Tony Perkins, President of the Family Research Council.
The debate airs live at 10AM this Sunday. Olson and Perkins tangled on the same show back in October after the Supreme Court refused to consider appeals out of several states.

RELATED: Buzzfeed reporter Chris Geidner believes we might get word from SCOTUS tomorrow immediately after its conference to consider the appeals out of the Sixth Circuit.
There is a slight — but unlikely — possibility that the court could wait until Tuesday, Jan. 20, to announce whether it will be hearing a case, but that is unlikely. Usually, at this point in the court’s term, such an announcement would be expected Friday afternoon. Then, if a case is accepted, the timeline starts for the filing of briefs by both sides and by outside parties, and arguments would be set — likely in April. Finally, a decision would be expected before the court adjourns for its summer recess — usually by late June.
