Obama now opposing anti gay marriage ballot measure

My faith in Barack Obama has been restored! “Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, who previously said the issue of gay marriage should be left up to each state, has announced his opposition to a California ballot measure that would ban same-sex marriages,” according to the Sacramento Bee.

Apparently Obama broke this news on Sunday in a letter presented at an LGBT Pride Breakfast in San Francisco.  The letter stated that he supports extending “fully equal rights and benefits to same-sex couples under both state and federal law.”

Obama also said “And that is why I oppose the divisive and discriminatory efforts to amend the California Constitution, and similar efforts to amend the U.S. Constitution or those of other states.”

Obama had previously said he opposed gay marriage.  Glad to see he came to his senses!
