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.

The discussion, which lasts 87 minutes, begins with the case of the New Mexico photographer who refused to shoot a gay wedding and ranges from the importance of motivation in such disputes to the ongoing tension between gay rights and religious freedom.
