Hillary Clinton Announces Support For Gay Marriage

Former United States Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton announced her support for gay marriage Monday, putting her in line with other potential Democratic presidential candidates on a social issue that is rapidly gaining public approval.

Clinton made the announcement in an online video released Monday morning by the gay rights advocacy group Human Rights Campaign. She says in the five-minute video that gays and lesbians are “full and equal citizens and deserve the rights of citizenship.”

“That includes marriage,” she says, adding that she backs gay marriage both “personally and as a matter of policy and law.”

Clinton’s announcement is certain to further fuel the already rampant speculation that she is considering another run for president in 2016. Other possible Democratic contenders — including Vice President Joe Biden, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley — all back the right of same-sex couples to marry.

Polls show that public opinion on gay marriage has shifted perhaps more rapidly than on any other major issue in recent times. In Gallup polling last November, 53 percent of adult Americans said same-sex marriages should be granted the same status as traditional marriages, while 46 percent felt they should not be valid.

In 1996, when Gallup first asked about gay marriages, only 27 percent felt they should be valid. [Time]

  1. My bible tells me in da book of Rom 1:22-28 abt d way men derailed frm d commandments given to man, instead man applied dem own knowledge which leads to corruption present in dis world now, no matter wat gay marriage shuldnt be allowed in any country, nation or watever bcos its a big sin in d sight of GOD….this is unfair i must say!

  2. Same sex wedin is pure rubish and as such, dis is d fulfilment of the prophecy of the end time. Can’t u people think of it? How can same sex get married to dem selves? Mrs Washinton dnt allow ur quest for power make u suport wat is not from your heart. Will u suport such a thing if u were not a politician? Pls stop it it is insane.

  5. Gay marriage, is the most stupid thing somebody can even think of getting into as marriage. The question here is hw will they give birth. So Mrs clinton or what ever you call your self, just keep your ur stupid support to ur self because u r married to man and nt a woman. So please do not even put your mouth into what yo have not done.

  6. what is the cosmos turning to?US is doomed of leading humanity on the path of insanity.cant blame the middle East of detesting US culture. its barbaric n ungodly. US is rushing vehemently towards the cliff of destruction.Africa is to be known as the custodian of moral culture which we are.no deviation no matter how buoyant US aid and grants may appear on the continent.

  7. Dis is a taboo,obama n d rest of his supporter,GOD is angry wit u over dis nonsence act,u people r really mocking God,may d almighty 4give u all.amen

  8. Man must be cautious in his decisions in life. What mrs clinton is saying is that men should be allowed to have anal sex with one another. Anyway, my fellow African brethren, i join u all to reject this despicable and unnatural act of immorality. Because of power you support the act of the evil one. Ok, my prayer is that those who support same sex marriage shall lose any quest they found themself.
