OPINION: All have a right to their views on issues such as same-sex marriage
In my opinion, it was a tough call for President Obama to "embrace same-sex unions," as reported in AnnArbor.com May 31.
I believe that deep down, he feels that marriage should be between a man and a woman. And he has every right, as we all do, to hold that opinion, providing we allow others, because of religious beliefs or any other important reason, to support a dissenting view.
Remember President Kennedy did not permit his Catholicism to dictate governmental policy.
When there is serious disagreement on important issues (such as same-sex marriage), I think a good question to ask ourselves is: Why does that opposing view bother me?
