Rauch and Blankenhorn discuss their proposal of federal civil unions at a Brookings Institute panel discussion

03/17/09 ADF Alliance Alert:

David Blankenhorn and Jonathan Rauch have written books with opposing views on same-sex marriage. In a 02/23/09 NY Times article, they offer what they represent as a "reconciliation" proposal on same-sex marriage, in which Congress would allow same-sex couples - if married or in state-sanctioned civil unions - to have the status of federally-recognized civil unions, while providing religious-conscience exceptions with respect to such civil unions.

This ADF alert has links to the transcript and audio file of a 03/13/09 discussion by the authors of their proposal.
