finally.  I hate that politicians have to play the game as opposed to being able to be honest with their views.

I’m not opposed to our President supporting equal rights. I know that’s an oversimplification of something that is a complex issue regarding the balance of power, but that’s just how I see it.

I just don’t understand why this is even an issue. Or even a religious issue.

Marriage isn’t religious, so churches shouldn’t be against it. Churches aren’t against courthouse marriages!

I’m also surprised.  But also very happy.  He’s taking a huge risk by doing this.  I have a lot of respect for that.

It really is sort of a “FINALLY!” moment. It wasn’t exactly a secret even that those were his personal beliefs (although not necessarily his “political” beliefs).  Now pair that with polls showing more people in the US support gay marriage than oppose it, and it’s pretty damn shocking that we can’t get it written into law.

Finally! Like bearlove said, it was pretty obvious that he supported it personally anyway.

Good for him.  Seriously.  I hope he’s prepared for the ton of hate coming his way from the 50% of the country that doesn’t support it, but I’m happy he finally said something.

I think it is about time, but I am surprised at his timing.

Wow.  This is historic.  And so encouraging after my state (NC) sadly passed Amendment One yesterday.
