Obama says he supports same-sex marriage

(CNN) - President Barack Obama, who previously said his views on the issue were "evolving," said Wednesday that he supports same-sex marriage.

The announcement puts Obama squarely at odds with presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who opposes same-sex marriage.

"At a certain point I've just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married," Obama said in an interview with ABC News.
The president once opposed same-sex marriage.

    Since the President wants to score some cheap political points by going the "broad way", he is on his own on this issue. The moral decadence as it is today in the United States is alarming and who knows what he will legalize next ....incest! We as Christians knows that this idea is despicable and we despise it.

    Obama should have stated his position of same sex marriage in 2007 ... instead of deceiving the American people, in order to get himself elected.

      Actually, Dennis Miller said it. He is a comedian if you didn't know it. The comments related to the ban on bake sales in MA that the house just voted to accept. The joke was relative to the amount of sugar in cookies and kettsup being about the same...
