Stern and Friedersdorf Debate Gay Rights vs. Religious Liberty

Last week, Outward’s Mark Joseph Stern and the Atlantic’s Conor Friedersdorf wrote dueling pieces in the wake of Stern’s response to a Ross Douthat New York Times column. This week, they set aside their keyboards and talked it all out in a Bloggingheads dialog.
