Obama heads to NY under pressure on gay marriage?

 

President Barack Obama is about to attend a gala fundraiser in New York City for gay supporters, and it comes just as the New York state Legislature stands on the brink of legalizing gay marriage.   The event Thursday night also turns a spotlight on an issue that causes consternation for the gay community: Obama’s opposition to gay marriage.

Gay activists view the Obama administration as slow to take up their issues. But the president won over many by repealing the ban on gays serving openly in the military and by instructing the Justice Department to stop defending in court a federal law defining marriage as between a man and a woman.
