President Obama held a sure-to-be-historic interview with ABC News today, in which he announced his support for same-sex marriage.  

Obama followed Biden's recent approval of gay marriage in the interview, stating that:

I have to tell you that over the course of several years as I have talked to friends and family and neighbors when I think about members of my own staff who are in incredibly committed monogamous relationships, same-sex relationships, who are raising kids together, when I think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf and yet feel constrained, even now that Don't Ask Don't Tell is gone, because they are not able to commit themselves in a marriage, at a certain point I've just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married."

The announcement comes a day after North Carolina voted to pass a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage.

What's your stance on gay marriage and/or marriage equality?
