Sherif Girgis and Andrew Koppelman debated same-sex marriage. Mr. Sherif argued against same-sex marriage, saying the issue was not about equality but rather what marriage is and the reasons states are involved in the question. He said “marriage is fulfilled by the bearing and rearing of whole new children.” Mr. Koppelman made his case in favor of same-sex marriage by refuting Mr. Sherif’s thesis. Following their prepared remarks they answered questions from moderator Richard Fallon and audience members.
Sherif Girgis is the author of What is Marriage? Man and Woman: A Defense, and Andrew Koppelman wrote Defending American Religious Neutrality. close
