A day after facing off with Piers Morgan and Suze Orman on CNN, Heritage fellow Ryan Anderson joined a round-table discussion on “Real News from The Blaze” yesterday. He covered a range of topics related to marriage: federalism, limited government, and the consequences of redefining marriage with no-fault divorce.
Anderson, co-author of the book “What Is Marriage” and Heritage’s William E. Simon Fellow in Religion and a Free Society, faced skeptical questions from S.E. Cupp, Buck Sexton, and Amy Holmes. Yet, as he’s done in interviews all week, Anderson articulated compelling reasons against redefining marriage. Of particular note was a debate between Anderson and Cupp about the federal government’s role in marriage and the why children benefit from both a mother and father.
The full segment runs about 12 minutes. In addition to Cupp, Sexton and Holmes, other panelists included Will Cain and Ben Domenech.
