Third Way Salutes President Obama's announcement of support for marriage for gay & lesbian couples
May 09, 2012
We salute the President for his announcement today in support of marriage for gay and lesbian couples.
This is an historic moment for the nation for which we express our deepest appreciation to the President.
As an organization that both supports allowing gay couples to marry and strives to understand and reach ideological moderates, we believe the center of the electorate is ready to support marriage for gay couples who want to make a public promise of lifetime commitment and fidelity to each other.
To be sure, this is uncharted territory for the nation’s body politic. But taking on such challenges is what leadership is about, and President Obama has once again demonstrated his commitment to lead on the most important issues facing the country.
