President Barack Obama is the first president to come out in support of same-sex marriage.
Now I am a Catholic and a grand knight in the Knights of Columbus and firmly believe that marriage is between a man and a woman. The president coming out for same-sex marriage is a political move that I believe is going to backfire on his goal of a second term.
President Obama ought to be more concerned about the economy and the millions of men and women out of work, than support an issue that is an attack on the sanctity of marriage.
