This debate came up on my feed. Gay marriage cannot be controlled by federal law unless we change the constitution (or something, bear with me). Marriage will always go by a state-by-state policy, and it goes without saying there are a lot of states WAY less tolerant than others.
Basically, just because Obama approves, it doesn't mean much will happen. The federal government would have to extend it's power where it doesn't belong (in state power), and it would cause a whooole hell of a lot of ruckus. Basically, we still have a long way to go.
