Same-sex marriage: Civil right vs. states' rights
I have NOT evolved Mr President
- jmsaba, CNN iReport producer
Despite my strong support for the President I strongly disagree with his position on same sex marriage yesterday. The gay community is not strong enough to deliver victory in November. The fact is many Americans, which includes democrats have not "evolved" on the issue of same sex marriage. Mr President you should have stood your ground and say, that you believe marriage is between a man and a woman, but you are against discrimination of any kind. Individual states should decide what's best for their state. It is a free country and people are free to love whom ever they want and thats ok with me; but I believe that marriage is between one man and one woman. END OF STORY. What will the gay community do? Vote for Mitt Romney? I don’t think so. They have no other choice but to support the democrats in November. All you have done Mr. President is alienate everyone else who is against same sex marriage. But we don’t have to agree on everything, so you still have my vote in November but I fear that may not be the case with many others.
