In the following series of videos, David Blankenhorn delves deeply into the topic of marriage, and specifically why we should not re-define marriage as a gender-neutral institution (i.e., why we should not implement so-called same-sex "marriage").
These videos are not really Catholic videos, since Mr. Blankenhorn analyzes this issue from a decidedly secular perspective. However, most of his conclusions seem to be aligned reasonably well with Catholic teaching on this issue (though he does deviate from Catholic teaching on a few points), and he makes a powerful argument. Therefore, I thought that the videos were worth presenting on this blog.
