Obama: Same Gender Marriage is a “Constitutional Right”


obama4President Obama believes that same-gender couples have a Constitutional right to marry.

“Ultimately, I think the Equal Protection Clause does guarantee same-[gender] marriage in all fifty states,” he said in an interview published today in the New Yorker.

While Obama said he believes states are legally required under the Constitution to allow same-gender marriages, his administration has not yet made that case before the Supreme Court.

Also in the interview, Obama spoke favorably about the Supreme Court’s recent decision not to interfere with lower court rulings on same-gender marriage.

“In some ways, the decision that was just handed down to not do anything about what states are doing on same-[gender] marriage may end up being as consequential-from my perspective, a positive sense-as anything that’s been done,” he said. “Given the direction of society, for the Court to have allowed the process to play out the way it has may make the shift less controversial and more lasting.” Read more at the New Yorker.

  1. At first he was against this but he realized being for it would get him votes

  2. This Kenyan is a very wicked man! He has brought abomination to this once great nation! This heretic has learnt nothing from his Bible classes! Even Reverend Wright is against this!

  3. This is ignorant. It may become a constitutional reality, but the constitution is not a hedonistic pill. Obama is more concerned with permissions than he is with liberties.

    There is no liberty in hedonistic disgraceful attenuated good.

    A sty is the Obama prediction.

    Fish your fear from his loose cape.


  4. This is definitely a stretch, but it is much less of a stretch than saying that for profit corporations can have religious views, which is what the current Supreme Court ruled.

  5. Oh, so all of a sudden Obama runs to the U.S. Constitution?

    What about all of the prior overt Constitutional violations that have been committed by this worst President in U.S. history?

    So for same gender Obama is selectively hiding behind his “Girsa” of the Constitution??

    Oh, brother!

  6. This nation is repeating the history of ancient Rome….The nation has signed its death sentence. The people are the instigators and the Immoral demanding the nihilism…….. presidents are just politicians.

    Actually,it should have cost him loads of votes
    the preponderance of referenda overwhelmingly went for traditional marriage.but he knows the media & social left control both him (he is after all their marionette) and in the long term the populace,
    so does he care less?

    Adam Garfinkle, editor of The American Interest, wrote “I don’t know of any great power in history that lost its foothold or decayed because of external reasons; internal social [degeneration] was to blame.

    There is no calamity which a great nation can invite which equals that which follows a supine submission to wrong

  8. Well polygamy is still outlawed.
    How come; they’re consenting?

    We would be better off challenging the gov’t’s right to a role in determining the word “marriage” separate from any legal ‘rights’ and funding.

    Let the word “marriage” ,return to being a religious and private affair

    All the amicae curae have going up the wrong pole.

    They should challenge the concept of marriage altogether.Let’s abolish it.

  9. To Comment #2. from “And this is coming by Parshas Noach?” and Comment #3. from “Info” and Comment #4. from “Anonymous”:


    And it is further a revulsion of a disgrace that right after we have gone through the period of T’shuva of the Yamim Noraim — the extreme exact opposite of T’shuva — this most repungant evil is announced.

  10. Matzav,
    I appreciate that you are substituting the word “gender” for a word you classify as non-tzniusdik, and I’m not saying I disagree, but you should include a little disclaimer that you are using the word “gender” incorrectly as a substitute.
