When: Wednesday, October 3rd, from 12:00-12:50
Who: Professor Richard Esenberg from Marquette University Law School, and Professor Rachel Rebouche from the University of Florida Levin College of Law
Are there valid secular public policy arguments against the legalization of same-sex marriage? Is the failure to legalize same-sex marriage one example of our society’s discrimination against the LGBTQ community? Will the adoption of same-sex marriage weaken the government’s ability to facilitate and incentivize procreative relationships between heterosexual couples? The UF Federalist Society and OUTlaw present a civil discourse on same-sex marriage. Come out and hear a discussion on secular arguments for and against the legalization of same-sex marriage.
FREE FOOD FOR THOSE IN ATTENDANCE!!
