Soon, The Internet Will Be Impossible To Control

Pic: AlamyWe think of Facebook, YouTube and Twitter as public utilities, a sort of digital commons. Partly because we’ve got used to it all being free, partly because it’s where the debates of the day are now publicly thrashed out. Social media is now part of our political and cultural furniture – exciting, raucous and noisy. Subsequently, we imagine it's neutral and apolitical. Empty "platforms" to be filled with our clamourings.

A Conservative Case For Gay Marriage

Fortunately, there’s a way to accept gay marriage without overturning traditional marriage.Several weeks ago, I debated gay marriage in Alabama, where same-sex marriage is still broadly opposed. The debate was hosted by a conservative Christian organization, the Fixed Point Foundation, and many people in the audience shared its views. I argued not for “marriage equality” but for a less radical idea: that same-sex couples are much like infertile heterosexual couples, whose non-procreative unions are already accepted within the framework of traditional marriage. I’ve condensed the argument here in the hope that Slate readers might share it with friends, relatives, or colleagues who, for religious or other reasons, remain uncomfortable with homosexuality. I also hope you’ll share the audio of the closing speech from the debate, which the foundation has kindly allowed Slate to publish above. The foundation has made video of the debate available here.
