On the latest episode of Banter, we delve into what Americans really think about same-sex marriage. AEI’s own Karlyn Bowman and Jennifer Marsico sit in to discuss the often contradictory nature of the public’s views. For example, at least a plurality of Americans support same-sex marriage, yet they also favor a constitutional amendment to define marriage as between a man and a women. Go figure. No one said untangling the web of opinions was going to be easy. We also discuss how views have changed over the last several years, if attitudes will continue to change, and how homosexuality compares to other social issues. Enjoy!

In the latest episode of AEI’s Banter podcast, Stu and Andrew sit down with friend-of-the-show Daniel Cox of the Public Religion Research Institute to discuss religion, sports, and America.

We talk about all this and more. As a bonus, we sit down with Josh Good and Greg Lane of the Values and Capitalism project and talk about their upcoming events. Enjoy!
