Marriage isn't a federal issue, our asses!
Despite openly supporting gay marriage and emphasizing the importance of equal rights SPECIFICALLY when it comes to homosexuals in his inauguration speech, President Obama (well his administration at least) have remained adamant that enforcing or amending marriage laws is NOT the job of the federal government…
BUT, it seems that Obama and his peeps have had a change of heart, as the Obama admin. will file a "friend-of-the-court" brief in the Supreme Court TODAY in SUPPORT of those homosexual couples who took legal issue against Prop 8 when it shat all over the rights of California's gays 4 years ago!
Obama's Administration is URGING the court to overturn Prop 8, which would allow previous same-sex marriages to be recognized and (hopefully) would pave the way for complete gay-marriage legalization in the state of California.
The fate of Prop 8 will reportedly be decided by June… here's to Elton John FINALLY getting his wish of marrying in CA!
Yet another example of our wonderful President promoting tolerance and equality!
What a dream boat. Swooooooon.
