So, what does First Lady Michelle Obama think about same-sex marriage? Considering Vice-President Joe Biden and her own husband have voiced full-fledged support for marriage equality, it’s not surprising that Michelle does also. Still, it’s beyond wonderful to hear her vocalize it nationally.
In a video released yesterday where the First Lady answers questions from her Twitter (@MichelleObama), she responded to one citizen’s request, “Please tell us about your family discussions about marriage equality and thank President Obama for his support!”
Michelle responses at the 5:20 mark:
“It really comes down to the values of fairness and equality that we want to pass down to our girls. I mean, these are basic values that kids learn at a very young age and that we encourage them to apply in all areas of their lives. And in a country where we teach our children that everyone is equal under the law, discriminating against same-sex couples just isn’t right.”
Like a loved one whom we know values and appreciates us without it being said, it’s still extremely comforting to hear it verbalized. Brava, Michelle!
