You will prepare and submit a term paper on Obamas Support for Gay Marriage. Your paper should be a minimum of 250 words in length. This news story assigned responsibility by underlining that Obamas views on same-sex marriage evolved and became more open because of his interactions with same-sex couples. Obama said: When I think about those soldiers or airmen or Marines or sailors … [and other gay couples, I decided to change my views on gay marriage] (Gast, 2012, par.38). His statement shows that because of his interactions with gay couples, he realized that they can be as dedicated to marriage and families as heterosexuals. Obama took responsibility for supporting gay marriage that is central to the gay community. The causes of the problem are the risks of supporting a controversial position during the campaign period and the duty of reducing prejudice against gay people in general through supporting their marriages. Tony Perkins thought that the president …handed to Mitt Romney the one missing piece in his campaign (Gast, 2012, par.19). Indeed, Obama is campaigning for a second term, and this opinion can risk him the support of conservative voters. Nevertheless, Obama is prepared to take the risk if it means taking the responsibility of reducing prejudice against gay people in general through supporting their marriages.
