Balancing Rights for the Gay Community

Episode #2610

 

The guests will discuss the recently passed Senate Bill 10, the Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act, which passed the state senate last February but did not pass the state house until November 5; the federal Employment Nondiscrimination Act that, if passed, would prohibit workplace discrimination against gay, bisexual and transgender Americans; the question of benefits for same-sex couples where marriage is not legal; respect for institutions that do not believe in gay marriage; and how they address the Biblical definition of marriage.

Original Air Date(s): 11/21/2013
