Barack Obama says he supports marriage defined as being between a man and a woman, as he has said in several forums and interviews. Then, he pads his comments by saying California’s Proposition 8 was unnecessary.
“I’ve stated my opposition to this,” the Senator said in response to a question from a viewer in San Leandro, California. “I think it’s unnecessary. I believe that marriage is between a man and a woman, and I’m not in favor of gay marriage, but when you start playing around with constitutions just to prohibit somebody who cares about another person…it just seems to me that that’s not what America is about. Usually, our constitutions expand liberties, they don’t contract them.”
First, he was for traditional marriage, then he was against it? Or kind of a mixed bag of positions?
Call it simply “artistic expression!”
