President Obama announced his personal support for same-sex marriage yesterday. However, he stipulated that this decisions should be left up to individual states. The issue of slavery was also left up to the states before the civil war. The issue of abortion was also left up to the states before Roe Vs. Wade. This is a very strange position for someone who believes that same-sex marriage is a civil right. How can it be a civil right in one state and not in another state?
