Dembski had earlier that day spoken at chapel and been very forthright about his own Christian faith.

Which is exactly the context he should have talked about it, not in lecture later on.

If you had a Christian congressman come to chapel and speak, sharing how important the Bible is to him, would you then later, in a public policy lecture, try to "make him squirm" by forcing him to justify taking a private, personal stance against gay marriage, and his public stance on ensuring fair treatment of all his constituents?

I don't think Dembski had any obligation to mix his private views on the implications of ID, with his public stance as an proponent of what he considers to be a scientific research program.

But that's just me.
