Mark Kleinschmidt | Another Hurdle to Marriage Equality?: A Discussion with the mayor of Chapel Hill

A discussion between Professor Joseph Blocher and Mayor Mark Kleinschmidt of Chapel Hill, the town's first openly gay mayor and a lawyer who has dedicated his life to public service. The conversation covers Kleinschmidt's public interest work, including his contributions as a death penalty lawyer, and North Carolina's "religious freedom" bill, which allows public officials to refuse to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples based upon a "sincerely held religious objection."
