President Obama Supports Same-Sex Marriage

In an interview President Obama said, “I think same-sex couples should be able to get married.”

As the President said during the interview, “it wouldn’t dawn on them that somehow their friends’ parents would be treated differently.  It doesn’t make sense to them. And frankly, that’s the kind of thing that prompts a change of perspective -- not wanting to somehow explain to your child why somebody should be treated differently when it comes to eyes of the law.”

So, maybe there will be a federal mandate that same sex marriage is legal all over the USA.

Your thoughts?

I just have to say it is about time a leader of our country supports the rights of their people.

Some friends of mine in Washington state got married last week after being together for many many years.

Thank you President Obama for stepping up and making a statement.
