I wish to offer my support to the Pres for making a choice to deal with a political hot potato a little more bluntly that washington usually does.
It may be a little divisive. Winston Churchill once said
You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life
If people want to get married. Best of luck to you. If you want to shack up, best of luck to you. If you want to piece your nose, best of luck to you. The constitution does its best to define equality, and to deny discrimination by race, gender or sexual orientation. Lets stop splitting hairs and cover all the bases.
If this is based on religion, then we must have a phenomenally puny view of God. Time we focus on things that need to be stopped. Especially these a**holes …

Pres certainly gets my vote for standing up for something. Now if only he’d fix the darn housing crisis the country would be a little happier 🙂
