I found this post yesterday in Obama’s Instagram feed. I decided to feature this photo because of its photojournalistic impact. At this point we pretty much know Obama’s views on same sex marriage. Even though this isn’t a political blog, what I have to say about this is “Bravo!” I know it’s an election year and that it may be just “too convenient.” But, I applaud our president for standing up for the basic right to marry the person we love. I am a supporter of gay marriage because I believe marriage in general is a personal issue that should be between two adults without the need of government intervention. At the same time, I believe that religious and private organizations should follow their doctrines as they see fit. What I don’t believe in is force-feeding your views onto other people.
So once again, President Obama, in behalf of my any of my friends and family who identify themselves as gay, thank you.
