The video is below. It’s about an hour long. I’m gonna watch this over dinner. If you see anything interesting, leave the timestamps and summaries in the comment section!

The worst it would do, in his mind, is change the “definition of marriage.” Doesn’t bother me, since it’s been changed (for the better) repeatedly throughout our country’s history.
