Awesome video series featuring John Corvino, author of Debating Same-Sex Marriage (Point/Counterpoint) calmly and rationally debunking basically every argument you’ve heard against same-sex marriage equality, starting with the video above that is about the definition of marriage.

There are many more to be explored (and shared!) via John Corvino’s YouTube channel, which is just awesome.
Personally, I really like his take on whether or not people who are against marriage equality are bigots (video below). Personally (and I’ve said this publicly), I think discriminating against any group of people based upon sex, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender or other things out of one’s control is bigotry. But I profoundly agree with Corvino that we need to be careful about demonizing our opponents.
“The best antitdote to moral blind spots is to educate people, not to shun them. And if we’re going to make progress, we need a better conversation.”
