The generational and social thinking changes that caused an unprecedented shift toward support for gay marriageHow did gay marriage?something unimaginable two decades ago?come to feel inevitable to even its staunchest opponents? Drawing on over 95 interviews with two generations of Americans, as well as historical analysis and public opinion data, Peter Hart-Brinson argues that a fundamental shift in our understanding of homosexuality sparked the generational change that fueled gay marriage?s unprecedented rise. Hart-Brinson shows that the LGBTQ movement?s evolution and tactical responses to oppression caused Americans to reimagine what it means to be gay and what gay marriage would mean to society at large. While older generations grew up imagining gays and lesbians in terms of their behavior, younger generations came to understand them in terms of their identity. Over time, as the older generation and their ideas slowly passed away, they were replaced by a new generational culture that brought gay marriage to all fifty states.Through revealing interviews, Hart-Brinson explores how different age groups embrace, resist, and create society?s changing ideas about gay marriage. Religion, race, contact with gay people, and the power of love are all topics that weave in and out of these fascinating accounts, sometimes influencing opinions in surprising ways. The book captures a wide range of voices from diverse social backgrounds at a critical moment in the culture wars, right before the turn of the tide. The story of gay marriage?s rapid ascent offers profound insights about how the continuous remaking of the population through birth and death, mixed with our personal, biographical experiences of our shared history and culture, produces a society that is continually in flux and constantly reinventing itself anew.An intimate portrait of social change with national implications, The Gay Marriage Generation is a significant contribution to our understanding of what causes generational change and how gay marriage became the reality in the United States.

I want to encourage the nation as a whole decide through a political process that one man and one woman is best for society. To see the political process working in society and not see the judicial side by fiat put such marriage on us. The standard of the bible specifies marriage between one man and one woman. In this unique hour and a half interview with The Reverend Doctor Wayne Grudem by telephone from the writer´s home north of San Francisco with the Reverand at his Phoenix area home. So much was covered regarding Gay Marriage and Same Sex Blessings, some in more depth because of Dr. Grudem´s generous willingness to spend so much time with the interview. This interview is the fourth in a series of what are now six interviews on the subject. It is the first with an Evangelical. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kenneth Ritter.

The good news: gay marriage is making revolutionary gains. The bad news: abortions and birth control pills are harder to come by. Susie takes a look at the legal battles over reproductive rights and marriage equality to see what lessons we can learn from the court cases. At the heart of the issue is whether privacy trumps equality - or is it the other way around? Next, some narrators of audio erotica are saying ´´no´´ to work, because some of the stories are so cheesy and horribly written. This has inspired a new business model, exemplified by Erotica for a Better Tomorrow. It´s a group of actors who have had enough with the dinosaur porn and billionaire romance spankings. They pledge to work on fantasy erotica that isn´t regressive and violent. Then, it´s ´´What´s New on Audible´´. Susie has a great new audiobook to recommend for our listening pleasure. The Inheritor by Laura Antoniou, narrated by Elizabeth Jasicki, is the sixth book in the Marketplace series. Susie thinks the books are getting stronger with each sequel.

Today´s show is all about queer lives and loves. The US Supreme Court has made it official, and now even the reddest of red states must recognize gay marriage. Forget about the fundamentalist´s ´´God´s will´´ argument against gay marriage, says Susie, and look at the money. Catholic blogger Simcha Fischer caught Susie´s attention when she noted that if churches now discriminate against gays, they will lose their tax-exempt status, and therefore, money. Next, Susie thinks about what is lost with assimilation. If gays can legally marry everywhere, the old days of always being an outsider are over. Many gays created new families and communities that were very different from their birth families and mainstream society. Susie looks at Michael Lindenberger´s thoughts on all this, including secret gay bars and repression, in ´´The Vanishing Terrain of Gay America´´, a New Republic article. Then, it´s ´´What´s New on Audible´´. Susie has a great audiobook to share that´s in keeping with today´s theme: Outlaw Marriages: The Hidden Histories of Fifteen Extraordinary Same-Sex Couples by Roger Streitmatter, narrated by Christopher Hurt. Same sex unions have been around forever, and this book profiles some fascinating and prominent couples who lived together and flourished. Susie loves this book!

In this timely, carefully reasoned social history of the United States, the New York Times best-selling author of Religious Literacy and God Is Not One places today´s heated culture wars within the context of a centuries-long struggle of right versus left and religious versus secular to reveal how, ultimately, liberals always win. Though they may seem to be dividing the country irreparably, today´s heated cultural and political battles between right and left, progressives and the Tea Party, religious and secular are far from unprecedented. In this engaging and important work, Stephen Prothero reframes the current debate, viewing it as the latest in a number of flashpoints that have shaped our national identity. Prothero takes us on a lively tour through time, bringing into focus the election of 1800, which pitted Calvinists and Federalists against Jeffersonians and ´´infidels´´; the Protestants´ campaign against Catholics in the mid-19th century; the anti-Mormon crusade of the Victorian era; the fundamentalist-modernist debates of the 1920s; the culture wars of the 1980s and 1990s; and the current crusade against Islam. As Prothero makes clear, our culture wars have always been religious wars, progressing through the same stages of conservative reaction to liberal victories that eventually benefit all Americans. Drawing on his impressive depth of knowledge and detailed research, he explains how competing religious beliefs have continually molded our political, economic, and sociological discourse and reveals how the conflicts that separate us today, like those that came before, are actually the byproducts of our struggle to come to terms with inclusiveness and ideals of ´´Americanness´´. To explore these battles, he reminds us, is to look into the soul of America - and perhaps find essential answers to the questions that beset us. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tristan Morris.
