Is it possible to have a civil and intelligent dialogue about anything these days, but especially about gay rights? I hope so.
Attorney Stephen C. Clark (a gay man) and I (president of the conservative Sutherland Institute) had a private email conversation over the course of a year to 18 months about gay rights and, with all the current hoopla over California's decision to allow legal same-sex marriage, we felt it might be appropriate to turn our private conversations into public ones.
This dialogue is marked by candor...it is raw and honest. We discussed gay marriage, civil unions, sexual orientation, hate crime laws, social integration, the science of homosexuality, and just some plain old-fashioned argumentation.
I am sure you'll let us know how we did!
Here are PDF links (it is a long dialogue so we broke it into three parts). You also can find them on the Sutherland home page at http://www.sutherlandinstitute.org/.
