From Discourse, Sunday April 5 at 12:00 pm EST, Marriage and the Mormons, part one of the series Marriage, Law, and American Society, produced by Sophie Jin.
In this installment, Jin sits down with Slate contributor and Princeton University Historian Neil J. Young to discuss how Mormon political involvement in passing Proposition 8 is part of a long legacy of Mormon political involvement that includes action in the 1970′s against (and in some cases, for) the passage of the Equal Rights Amendment. Young also explains how Mormon theology and history set the conditions for this involvement.
