Hot off the presses! Check out this article Roland Hulme put down for us on Barack Obama's decision to openly announce he supports same-sex marriage.
Obama is quoted as saying:
“You know, Malia and Sasha, they have friends whose parents are same-sex couples. 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 in perspective.”
Roland examines the issue and responds with:
"Nevertheless, it now appears “Barry” has put his mouth where the money is, and even if your response to his announcement was “It’s about fucking time!”, there’s no denying that his support of same sex marriage will set a precedent for many elections to come.
What do you think? Should Obama have stepped up to support same sex marriage earlier? Or do you support his decision to only talk about the issue now?
