Gay Marriage Debate

Watch this debate on gay marriage with David Blankenhorn, author of The Future of Marriage, and Evan Wolfson, author of Why Marriage Matters: America, Equality, and Gay People's Right to Marry. This 2 hour debate, along with audience questions, becomes quite heated, but is very informative as to the positions on each side of the gay marriage debate. Blankenhorn expresses his belief of what marriage is and what it means for parents and children if the definition of marriage is changed. Wolfson cites studies by numerous organizations that have shown gay marriage to not be harmful in regards to raising children, and to deny gay couples marriage is discrimination and violates their civil rights. This debate was conducted on C-SPAN and can be viewed on streaming video through FORA.tv.

Oscar Wilde Audio Books

Oscar Wilde was a well renowned poet and playwright in 19th century England. Born in Dublin in 1854 Wilde left his homeland to study at Oxford University. While a student at Oxford, Wilde gained accolades as he received the Newdegate Prize for his poem "Ravenna" describing his feelings about the Italian city of the same name. Upon leaving the University, Wilde went on to publish his first volume of poetry entitled "Patience" and followed that work with a play entitled "The Duchess of Padua" in 1883.

Wilde eventually relocated to America and became well known for his unusual sense of fashion, long hairm and ostentatious personality. Although his personality made him instantly popular in his social circles, his work as an author did not become widely recognized until the publication of The Happy Prince and Other Tales a collection of children's stories in 1888.

Although Wilde did marry and have children, he led a double life as a homosexual and carried on an affair with aristocrat Lord Alfred Douglas. Eventually Wilde was accused of sodomy by Douglas' father, which resulted in Wilde attempting to sue Douglas' father in court. However, Wilde's homosexuality (unlawful at the time) was uncovered by the court. His own writing eventually lead to his legal demise as his published work The Picture of Dorian Gray was used to incriminate his homosexual tendencies. He was eventually sentenced to two years of hard labor in prison. Wilde did not fare well after his incarceration and eventually died a poor man's death in Paris at the age of 46.
