White House spokesman Jay Carney was asked Tuesday about the same-sex marriage case in Utah. Here's what he said:
Q • Thanks, Jay. Yesterday, the Supreme Court issued a stay on same-sex marriages in Utah. As the litigation that brought them there proceeds through the courts, did the President express any disappointment with that decision?
Carney • We have no comment on the specifics of this case, because the United States government is not a party to this litigation. But speaking broadly, as you know, the President's views on marriage equality are well established. He believes that loving, committed gay and lesbian couples that want to get married and have access to the full benefits, protections and obligations that marriage brings should be able to do so.
