A number of stars have added their names to a letter to Barack Obama urging him to end discrimination of same-sex marriages.
“In law, in love, in life, marriage says ‘we are family’ in a way that nothing else does,” reads the letter. “Marriage is the coming together of two lives, marked by a public promise of love and responsibility in front of friends and family. And marriage brings not only public respect and personal significance, but also a safety net of legal protections, rights, and responsibilities for which there is no substitute.”
President Obama supports government recognition of gay unions, but not marriage.
