One three steps closer to equality!!!
While President Obama spoke out in support of gay marriage back in May, he is now publicly endorsing same-sex marriage measures on ballots in THREE states!
Yesterday, the Prez issued statements through his campaign secretary in Washington state, Maryland and Maine, encouraging voters to approve of the gay marriage initiatives on their ballots!
Washington’s statement read:
“While the president does not weigh in on every single ballot measure in every state, the president believes in treating everyone fairly and equally, with dignity and respect. Washington's same-sex marriage law would treat all Washington couples equally, and that is why the President supports a vote to approve Referendum 74.”
We couldn't have said it better ourselves!
Maryland and Maine’s statements were similar, with Maine’s stating:
“While the president does not weigh in on every single ballot measure in every state, the president believes in treating everyone fairly and equally, with dignity and respect. The president believes same-sex couples should be treated equally and supports Question 1.”
As for Minnesota, the POTUS has spoken AGAINST an amendment that would define marriage as only being between a man and a woman.
YES!!!! It’s SO important that we have a president who not only voices his approval, but takes action to endorse specific measures!
Romney, on the other hand? Do we even have to tell you that he’s against same-sex marriage???
It’s about time our country moves forward and allows EVERYONE the right to marry!!!!
