Obama and the North Carolina marriage equality amendment.

Today’s Link

This is something interesting.  As you’ll see in the link there is yet another amendment against marriage equality tabled for North Carolina.  Nothing unusual there it seems.  But this time President Obama has made a statement about it and how he doesn’t support it.  That is unusual.

Obama has never fully stated that he supports marriage equality.  He has stated that his views have continued to evolve on the matter though.  Making this statement is a huge step in a general election year as it now puts him directly at odds with all the Republican party candidates.  He didn’t need to do this so it is clear that this was a calculated and intended step.  Good for him.  It means he is clearly expecting to have to deal with this issue at the ballot box in November, something that no candidate has done before to my knowledge.

Big love,
