9/14/09: Natural Family Values

In January 2006, the small, rural community of Kanab, Utah became a center of controversy over marriage. The city council passed a unanimous resolution to define a family as "one man, one woman" and a "full quiver" of children. What they weren't ready for was the onslaught of media attention and the divisions it created in town. A new documentary called Natural Family Values is screening in Salt Lake City, and Doug talks with the filmmakers about what happens when democracy and theocracy clash.

This Wednesday, September 16th at 7:00 p.m., the Human Rights Education Center will show "Natural Family Values" at the Salt Lake City Public Library (210 East 400 South). The film will be followed by a panel discussion and audience Q&A hosted by Doug Fabrizio. For more information, call 801-521-4283 or click here
