Obama also said he's known to be a "fierce advocate for equality" for gays and lesbians, and will remain so.But equality apparently does not extend to same-sex marriage:
Obama told MTV he believes marriage is "between a man and a woman" and that he is "not in favor of gay marriage."And that's where I call BS. Either allow same-sex marriage, or make the government recognize only civil unions for everybody, gay or straight, and let individual faiths/churches/whatever decide what "marriage" is.
But it's not just his support for Prop. 8 that is so galling to equality activists.That is just plain Santorum-level stupidity and bigotry.
It's that Warren, in an interview with Beliefnet.com, has since equated allowing loving same-sex couples to get married with redefining marriage to permit incest and pedophilia.
