Join us this week as we discuss Religion, Marriage and the 1st Amendment: What's at stake with the recent Defense of Marriage Amendment passed by the NC Legislature? The focus of the discussion is North Carolina's approach to marriage from a legal, religious and social perspective. Using the Defense of Marriage Amendment as a backdrop to this discussion, we will examine how this new Amendment stacks up to the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment and Freedom of Religion/Non-Endorsement Clauses of the 1st Amendment. Using a variety of voices and viewpoints, we will look at the influence religion has on the democratic process and how the social attitudes on this issue are changing among young people in North Carolina.
