Why did two prominent Catholic intellectuals change their minds on gay marriage? And what does that mean for the future of marriage? IAV president David Blankenhorn talks with Joseph Bottum editor, speaker and best-selling author, and Charles Reid, Jr. about marriage in America, gay and otherwise, in light of Catholic teaching and their Catholic faith.
Jody Bottum's most recent book is entitled "An Anxious Age" and subtitled "The Post-Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of America". His article published in Commonweal in August of 2013 -- The Things We Share: A Catholic's Case for Same-Sex Marriage -- was an immediate sensation.
Charles Reid, Jr. is Professor of Law at St. Thomas University School of Law and a prolific contributor to a variety of law journals, as well as a frequent contributor to "The Blog" over at Huffington Post. He has just recently published a play masquerading as a law review article entitled "The Devil Comes To Kansas: A Story of Free Love, Sexual Privacy, and the Law".
