Glenn Loury (Brown University), Glenn Loury II (Just a Bloody Blog), and David Blankenhorn (Institute for American Values)

On a special live edition of The Glenn Show, David moderates a discussion with the Glenns, father and son. Glenn shares some family history, and Glenn II shares the story of how he came out to his parents. They consider the morality of homosexual conduct and the growing support for same-sex marriage, including the effect of personal ties on changing minds. Glenn II explains why his support of gay marriage has deepened recently. David argues that, for the sake of marriage, we must leave the culture war behind. Why is marriage declining in the general population? Should children be taught that marriage is the way to escape poverty? Finally, the three debate the comparison between the civil rights movement and the current struggle for same-sex marriage.
