The NAACP recently came out in favor of same-sex marriage. Critics of the organization, including conservative talk radio show host Mark Davis, who filled in for Rush Limbaugh, questioned the wisdom of this decision, especially as many people of color are socially conservative.
President Obama announced his decision last week. The administration’s announcement coming out in support of same-sex marriage was made several days after North Carolina passed a law defining marriage as being between one man and one woman. Davis said that many African Americans are socially conservative and the Obama administration would suffer from the decision.
Romney, in a speech before a religious institution recently defined marriage as being between one man and one and one woman. Davis criticized the president’s position and accused supporters of same sex marriage of using the term marriage equality to accuse people who oppose it of being homophobes.
Not all Jews share your opinion that Jewish gay people cannot marry.
Anyway, no, people who wish to legally prevent same sex couples from marrying are against equality. Such people want one form of romantic relationship to be given legal privileges and other forms of romantic relationship to be prevented from accessing those privileges. The situation described in unequal, and therefore anyone supporting it is against equality.
