4:00 – Debating Same-Sex Marriage
Polls and election results show Americans sharply divided on same-sex “marriage,” and the controversy is unlikely to subside anytime soon. Taking a "point/counterpoint" approach, John Corvino (a philosopher and prominent gay advocate) and Maggie Gallagher (a nationally syndicated columnist and co-founder of the National Organization for Marriage) explore fundamental questions: What is marriage for? Is sexual difference essential to it? Why does the government sanction it? What are the implications of same-sex marriage for children's welfare, for religious freedom, and for our understanding of marriage itself? We host a debate.
