Leading Edge with Jerry Anderson – March 31, 2013

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

This week, the United States Supreme Court heard two cases related to same sex marriage. First, the court heard arguments on the constitutionality of California's Proposition 8, which banned same sex marriage.  The next day the justices were asked to consider whether the Defense of Marriage Act, passed by congress and signed by President Bill Clinton in 1996, is constitutional.

Jerry sits down with local attorney Richard Kerger to discuss the legal issues at play. Later, the two are joined by University of Toledo Gender Studies Chair Dr. Charlene Gilbert to discuss the cultural aspect and implications of the Supreme Court's decision.

Finally, Jerry speaks with David Yonke, editor of ToledoFAVS.com about the site's upcoming "Faith Under Fire" film and discussion series.
