This Should Be Interesting

I hope they tape it. This is from an email from Dale Carpenter:

I've organized a symposium addressed to the question, "Is Gay Marriage Conservative?" It will be held on February 15, 2008 (three weeks away) in Houston at the South Texas College of Law. It is a first-of-its-kind event, devoted entirely to what has become an intramural debate among conservatives about the issue. The speakers are:

Gerard V. Bradley,
Notre Dame Law School

Dale Carpenter,
University of Minnesota Law School; Visiting Professor, South Texas College of Law

Jesse H. Choper,
University of California Law School, Berkeley

Teresa Stanton Collett,
University of St. Thomas School of Law

David Frum,
American Enterprise Institute

Charles Murray,
American Enterprise Institute

Robert F. Nagel,
University of Colorado Law School

Jonathan Rauch,
The Brookings Institute

John Yoo,
University of California Law School, Berkeley

This is a strong group of conservative intellectuals and gay-marriage experts. The symposium web page, with speaker bios, a program, and abstracts of the presentations, can be found here:
