President Obama Endorses Marriage Equality Push in Rhode IslandToday, President Obama endorsed legislative efforts to pass marriage equality in the state of Rhode Island. White House spokesperson Shin Inouye provided the following statement to the Washington Blade:

INOUYE: While the President does not weigh in on every measure being considered by the states, he believes all couples should be treated fairly and equally, with dignity and respect. As he has said, his personal view is that it’s wrong to prevent couples who are in loving, committed relationships, and want to marry, from doing so.

Obama similarly expressed support for marriage equality legislation in Illinois last month.
