Obama proclaims support for gay marriages
May 10 , 2012

Not until yesterday, Barack Obama’s view on gay marriage had been in an ”evolving” state, as indicated in previous occasion when asked about the issue.

If you are wondering where this evolution has led, it’s not very far from the Darwanian ”homo-erectus”. The President’s view has suddenly reached the ”homo-maritus” stage. ”Same-sex couples should be able to marry”, the President said, in a Wednesday ABC interview.

This moves makes Obama the first US President to support same-sex marriage.

Vice President, Joe Biden had on Sunday said he was ”absolutely comfortable” with gay marriage. This remark, Obama said, prompted him to open up on the issue. The consequence of this move has brought both praises and criticisms to Obama who will be contesting for a second-term US Presidency against GOP presumptive nominee, Mitt Romney, come November.

Recent polls show Americans divided on the issue. A recent May 3-6 national Gallup Poll shows 50 percent support for gay marriages against 48 opposed. Comparing this to an earlier poll taken a year ago, shows a slight drop from 53 percent of those opposing same-sex marriage.

How this would affect the President’s second-term bid for the White House has become a major debate among political pundits.

Meanwhile, on Tuesday, North Carolina, through a referendum, approved an amendment banning same-sex marriage. Voters approved the amendment by a 61%-39% margin with all counties reporting.
