Today's episode is brought to you by AT&T. Mobilizing Your World.

With the Supreme Court set to debate gay marriage next week, we talk to Tanner Williams, a University of Oklahoma pole vaulter. This June, Tanner and his husband Scott celebrate their first anniversary. Tanner talks about how pole vaulting and his faith in God saved him in his homophobic town. His religion is important to him even as others use Christianity to keep gays down. We explore Tanner's story and the role of religion in the debate over gay rights.
