- Wednesday, October 15 at 6:00 p.m.
- Wausau Campus CHS 1004 with IVC to regional campuses (T132, M118, P133)
The debate over same-sex marriage rages on in the U.S., with a handful of states permitting it, many more banning it, and still others contemplating it. But the debate doesn't merely concern the rights of gays and lesbians; it touches upon the meaning of marriage itself, as well as the role of government, the significance of sex, the function of family, and the deep human longings for intimacy, love, and security. Join John Corvino - a national leader in the marriage debate - as he assesses the controversy and makes a compelling case for extending marriage to same-sex couples.
