The US has come a long way on gay marriage in five years

President Obama announced this week that he believes gay people should be allowed to get married, drawing the expected howls from the right. Jon Stewart of the Daily Show surveyed the media and summed it up perfectly:
This is the true measure of how far we have come as a nation... In like five years the prime talking point from Republicans about people who support gay marriage has gone from 'It will destroy society via turtle f******" to "Oh, of course you're for it. You'll say anything popular to get re-elected".

It's a pity our PM hasn't got the same moral courage as Obama.
