Obama hopes high court legalizes same-sex marriage

President Obama said Thursday he hoped the Supreme Court decides that same-sex couples across the country have a right to marry.

“My hope is that they go ahead and recognize what the majority of the American people now recognize,” Obama said Thursday in an interview with YouTube video blogger GloZell Green.

The court last Friday announced its intention to take up gay rights cases that could overturn bans on same-sex marriage in Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee. While federal appellate courts overseeing other states have overturned anti-gay marriage laws, the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld those state bans.
In 2013, the Supreme Court struck down a central part of the Defense of Marriage Act, which prohibited the federal government from extending benefits to same-sex partners. But the justices did not rule at the time if there was a constitutional right to gay marriage.

    What the Supreme court should be looking at is who is this Obama and his ideas should he really be president?

  • Robert Wilson says:

    A gay, muslim, terrorist, marxist “president”. What a mix!

  • tinytim says:

    What does Obama mean that the Supreme court will DECIDE? They can’t decide nothing and better not it needs to be in the LAW BOOKS if it’s right or wrong about the same sex marriages. In fact if it is I WANT TO SEE WHERE IT IS WRITTEN and see for my self……..I want what book, what article #, what year it was voted on, everything!!!…..Remember Supreme Court Judges GOD will judge you……..and that is no joke…

    1. Robert Wilson says:

      The liberal court makes up the rules as they move along.

  • CTH says:

    What the majority of the American people now actually recognize and what obutthead says are as different as day and night. Is his preference in this matter influenced by his own sexual preferences?

    1. Robert Wilson says:

      Check out a few Chicago gay bar frequenters, he/she is well known there.

  • William Walizer says:

    The majority voted against same sex marriage, one judge stated it was unconstitutional and the majority vote was repealed! Obama I hope you get arrested before the end of 2016, you stupid tyrant!

    1. Robert Wilson says:

      I can cuff “it” for you.

    2. I Seigel says:

      Wrong, wrong and WRONG! Strike three, you’re out. NEXT?!?!

      1. William Walizer says:

        NC and VA voted to uphold traditional marriage as being between one and one woman! One judge stated it was unconstitutional and the majority vote was struck down. You need to get your facts before correcting others!

        1. I Seigel says:

          Then try to be clearer in your statements. When you say “the majority voted”, you didn’t say you were referring to just one or 2 states. Sometimes the Court is there to protect the minority from the majority. Sometimes referendums or initiatives are written so poorly that the public doesn’t understand what they’re voting on. Or they’re written by non-lawyers who don’t know all the legal ramifications of their proposals.
