On December 16, 1989 Robert Williams was ordained by John Shelby Spong, Bishop of the Diocese of Newark, New Jersey, into the priesthood of the Episcopal Church. This action immediately ignited heated controversy across the country. Feeling there would be general interest in a discussion of homosexuality from a Biblical perspective, Jeff Asher sought and arranged this debate with Mr. Williams. The discussion took place January 20, 1990, via telephone on Bible Talk the weekly call-in radio program of the Dumas Drive Church of Christ in Amarillo, Texas.
