Unless you were away at a special one day training camp to reprogram you away from homosexuality, you probably saw the big news: President Obama announced he was personally comfortable with the idea of same sex marriage. What that support means legislatively or legally is to be determined, much like my own sexuality. Supporters of same sex marriage hope that he might rally support for a repeal of 1996's Defense of Marriage Act while the other side hopes that this was simply a statement of personal belief. Whichever side you stand on, one thing is clear: you are wrong.
