Remember When Obama Opposed Same-Sex Marriage?
Back in 2004, Barack Obama declared, “I have been very clear on this. I have said I am not a supporter of gay marriage. I think the term marriage itself has strong religious roots and a strong tradition that means something special to people in this country.” How times change. As the political winds shifted, he came out of the closet, so to speak, in 2012, saying he supported same-sex marriage. And after Friday’s tragic Supreme Court decision, Obama crowed that sometimes “justice … arrives like a thunderbolt,” and gloried in the “victory for America” the decision represented. He even lit up the White House like a rainbow.
But never forget 2004.
