Obama Comes Out For Gay Marriage

By Charlotte Robinson, May 09, 2012
Finally in an interview with Robin Roberts of ABC News, President Obama announced his support for marriage equality. AFER lead co-counsel Theodore B. Olson stated, “Today is a proud day for all Americans. The bedrock American principles of freedom & human dignity are central to the political & legal convictions of Republicans, Democrats, liberals & conservatives alike. President Obama’s words remind us that marriage & equality are universal values that unite us all. They remind us that we are all—as a People & a Nation—striving to form a more perfect Union.” AFER Board President Chad Griffin added, “President Obama’s words today will be celebrated by generations to come. The millions of young gay & lesbian Americans across this nation, their President’s words provide genuine hope that they will be the first generation to grow up with the freedom to fully pursue the American dream. Marriage—the promise of love, companionship & family—is basic to the pursuit of that dream. Our Constitution’s promise, the promise of liberty, is one that every generation must realize. As President Obama recognized today, the fight to secure marriage equality is the defining element of our generation’s search for greater freedom.” This is a great day for our LGBT people.
