    Good, about time. Hurry up equality!

  2. I was reading this i was holding back from crying. IM am american , and its ingrain as a american child that everyone is created equal and this had been a fight for such a long time. Im only 22 i dated here and there, not much in the last 2 years but im getting older and i dont want to live somewhere that im considered second class. This president is my John F kennedy of his time, loved by many and fights for all. It really feels like gay equality is growing faster and faster. Ill be so happy when im a daddy one day and my kid will look at me as if “gay rights whats that ?”

  3. 2013 is turning out to be a wonderful year for Equality worldwide.Lets hope the USA will lead the world this time by good example

    Excellent, this is a big step forward and lets hope they are listened to and marriage becomes law for all.

    It’s about time, too.

    The only reason for things like Prop 8 is to deny and discriminate. The people supporting such bigotry know the harm they are doing and to continue is shameful. It’s these people that scream if they get discriminated against yet feel their chosen belief system gives them so overriding right.

    Well it doesn’t and no excuses can be made to continue to show such hatred against other sections of society.

      Obama Administration puts pressure on Supreme Court

      No one puts pressure on the S Court this is just a ploy for votes. The bill will pass because its the Its Constitutional

      1. ‘…Obama Administration puts pressure on Supreme Court…’

        dont be naive, supreme court is a political institution as in nominating judges to supreme court is a political process, so it is hardly independent legal institution anyway

        bobmarchiano….

        Obama cannot be re-elected, he’s on his second term. Therefore has nothing to loose.

        It’s good for all that he is putting pressure on the Supreme Court.

        Obviously you don’t understand how the whole thing works. First Obama cannot be reelected as president since he is in his second term. Second, Obama as president, in the event of an opening in the supreme court for an appointment can send in a more liberal person, which could in turn, if re-argued the case, overturn whatever the conservatives do now. So yes, he can exert some pressure.

    Ann Widdecombe, C4M and all in opposition, take not, pay close attention. You’re outnumbered. Stop the hate, stop the homophobia, stop discrimination, stop interfering with progress and our rights and stop imposing your religion on others just as we don’t call for discrimination against you for believing whatever you want.

    Well done, Mr President.

  7. ..And so he should. It was a nasty, unnecessary piece of legislation in the first place and should never have been introduced.
