Episode Description

Most of us know that the United States Supreme Court has agreed to resolve the national debate over gay marriage once and for all, beginning in May of this year. The slow, and lately more rapid, cutting edge of this issue comes as a result of the number of people who have come, over time to be intimately acquainted with a GLBT person. Everybody knows someone who is GLBT—even if we don’t know we know them. That knowing begins to create an openness. The political arguments never tell the whole story—it is told by becoming intimately acquainted with the story of someone—someone we could love if we knew them. Meagan O’Nan is one of those people who has a story to tell, a story that allows us to see the person behind the label. Her book is called Courage and she tells us that agreeing to disagree is no longer enough. Gay rights is just one of the many areas of bias and discrimination that run rampant through our country, and our world. Today we open the door to a further discussion.
