    Has Obama flip-flopped on his stance on gay marriage or does he still hold the same homophobic anti-gay view on the subject?

    Specifics on the 'law'??

    Hell.. I support getting the government out of marriage all together..... only recognize family units for the sake of inheritance, power of attorney in case of emergency and medical decisions, taxation, and things that are actually government related.... No forced acceptance or bullshit like that.... have the churches and beliefs dictate whether you think someone is married or not... people have the right to choose whether they accept someone else's choice or not...

    Exactly, if a church or business wants to recognize/not recognize a marriage for whatever reason so be it, not something for government to waste so much time on.

    He still likes gays when he knows he can't pass anything to fix it. He still likes to use them for political gain as both sides do.

    People have the right to accept and tolerate, just as they have the right to not accept or be bigots or whatever else, when it comes to the choices of others

    These far lefties just cannot or will not understand this

    So, why are the Republicans wasting their time and our money on this sort of political BS?
