This week’s challenge is a video that’s currently being passed around: How can you be against same-sex marriage? Families with same-sex parents are really no different from any other family, and their children do as well as any other children. Families are defined by their commitment to each other. So why would you want to codify discrimination in the state constitution?
There are many arguments and claims made in this video. Can you identify them? Can you respond? Which do you see as most important to respond to first? In a real-life conversation, you have to be able to pick out what is most central because you probably won’t have time to cover everything. And in this case, you also have to consider the powerful emotions involved. So let us know how you would graciously approach this challenge.
Make sure you’re here on Thursday to hear Alan’s response.
