Obama : gay marriage makes us stronger

Appearing at a record setting fund raiser at George Clooney's house Thursday, President Obama spoke more about his decision to supporty gay marriage.

"Obviously yesterday we made some news," he said to applause from the Hollywood audience.

"But the truth is it was a logical extension of what America is supposed to be. It grew directly out of this difference in visions. Are we a country that includes everybody and gives everybody a shot and treats everybody fairly and is that going to make us stronger? Are we welcoming to immigrants? Are we welcoming to people who aren’t like us? Does that make us stronger? I believe it does. So that’s what’s at stake.”

So Gay marriage makes us stronger?

When will Pedophiles be able to "marry" their victims?

When will brother and sister be able to "marry" each other?

At what point do we stop being "inclusive"?
