President Barack Obama made national headlines this week when he came out in support of gay marriage during an interview on ABC News.
Obama said he has changed his stance on the issue and said, for him, personally, "I think same-sex couples should be able to get married."
Reporters at ABC called the statement historical. Obama's remarks came just after North Carolina formally banned gay marriage.
Some critics have said the president may have come out for gay marriage for politcal reasons, in anticipation of the upcoming presidential election, but others say his sentiments are sincere.
Was it appropriate for President Obama to stand up in support of gay marriage? What do you think?
