People across New Mexico are talking about President Obama’s historic remarks this week on marriage equality…
Susan, Santa Fe:
I am the mother with an only child who came out to me after her first semester at college. She is now a lovely woman who lives in California and is married to her wife. They are both wonderful mothers to my most precious three year old granddaughter. I would like all of them to live in a world of equal rights, love and acceptance of who they are and who they love.
“I like that he believes in being fair. It's just that simple.”
“I'm so proud of our equality-loving President and Vice-President.”
Dianne, Santa Fe:
"I am proud of our President for coming out and supporting civil rights for all people. Equal rights, is not just gay rights. Any discrimination against a single class of citizen (based on love, mind you) is unacceptable & must be changed."
“Cheers to president Obama for having the courage to openly endorse gay marriage...equal rights for everybody, let’s go!”
