The NY Times says Obama’s support for “gay marriage” was a strong statement.
It seems good and important, and I just wish the president had not said this:
The president stressed the tension he felt between the desire to treat people equally and respect for those whose religious beliefs lead them to oppose same-sex marriage.
“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.”
I’m glad equality won out; I’m not so happy there was a contest.
What do you think?
