Obama backtracked from previous support for same-sex marriage

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

In news that's all over the blogosphere tonight, Windy City Times (PDF is here) is reporting that Obama supported same-sex marriage during his 1996 run for the Illinois state senate:

"I favor legalizing same-sex marriages, and would fight efforts to prohibit such marriages." (A scanned image of the questionnaire signed by Obama is here.)

Whether for religious or political reasons, I'm disappointed at how his position has regressed to a separate-but-unequal "civil union" stance.
