Thank you Mr President

As a Rabbi, I am supposed to remain non-partisan when it comes to supporting individual candidates for office and I take that principle very seriously. But, that does not preclude me from expressing admiration for particular decisions made by those in political office.

Thank you President Obama for the courage you have shown in speaking out in favor of same-sex marriage. Many of us, myself included,  have found our views on this subject “evolving” over the past years.  But, at some point, the statement has to be made loudly and clearly and your decision to make that statement today will help to lead our nation to a better place, a place in which all will be able to live in dignity and equality.

Your statement reminds us how important it is to stand up for what we believe even though some may disagree.

It’s time to say the Shehecheyanu.

    I agree that we should stand up for what we believe in, even if others disagree. I believe that marriage is between a man and a woman. No amount of political correctness can make something normal and healthy that isn’t.
