Iowa Debate on Same-Sex Marriage and Religious Accommodations

Readers in and around Des Moines, IA, might be interested in a debate between Georgetown Law prof Nan Hunter and me, this Tuesday at 3 p.m. at Drake Law School.  The topic is "Religious Liberty Exemptions and Iowa's Same-Sex Marriage Decision."  The topic is of great importance nationally, of course, and in Iowa as the approaching legislative session will consider the implementation of the state supreme court decision legalizing gay marriage.

I'll be defending, broadly speaking, the model religious-exemption provision proposed by a group of scholars including Rick and me.  Our letters setting forth and defending that approach, as applied to various states including Iowa, are collected here.

Hope to see some Iowa readers!
