OBAMA HAS LEGALIZED 6 MORE STATES FOR GAY MARRIAGE, MAKING 32 STATES.
Midway through his first term, President Obama said he was "unwilling to sign on to same-sex marriage primarily because of my understandings of the traditional definitions of marriage." As a US Senate candidate he had declared his belief that "marriage is between a man and a woman."
But Obama also mused that "attitudes evolve, including mine," and it seems now that that evolution has occurred at head-snapping speed – prompted by others in his administration, including Vice president Joe Biden (who apparently got out ahead of his boss on the issue) and Attorney General Eric Holder.
On Saturday, Attorney General Eric Holder announced that the Obama administration is adding six more states to the list of those where federal benefits would be granted to same-sex married couples, bringing the total such states to 32 out of 50.
