In Baldwin Hills, Obama’s stance on gay marriage gets mixed reviews | LA Times

LA Times: An anti-gay marriage group, Alliance Defense Fund, released a statement saying Obama “doesn’t understand the public purpose of marriage.” “Marriage — the lifelong, faithful union of one man and one woman — is the building block of a thriving society,” said litigation staff counsel Jim Campbell. “It’s not something that politicians should attempt to redefine for political purposes. The president has spoken eloquently about how fatherless homes often hurt children and society. Today’s statement is a tragic contradiction that promotes the creation of even more fatherless and motherless homes.”
