posted on May 10, 2012

Yesterday afternoon, during an interview with ABC News, President Obama declared, “I think same-sex couples should be able to get married.” The announcement came the day after North Carolina passed a constitutional amendment defining marriage “as between one man and one woman.” The President explained that he had reached this decision in large measure because of the teachings of his Christian faith. “The thing at root that we think about is, not only Christ sacrificing himself on our behalf, but it’s also the golden rule—you know, treat others the way you would want to be treated,” he said. “And I think that’s what we try to impart to our kids, and that’s what motivates me as president.”
