It wasn’t a public policy change. But it was an announcement that dominated much of the public discourse for the second half of the week: President Barack Obama’s long-expected expression of support for marriage equality. Sharing her insights on the immediate reaction and likely political impact is Religion Dispatches Senior Editor Sarah Posner.

She’s written excellent articles about this week’s events for both Religion Dispatches http://www.religiondispatches.org/dispatches/sarahposner/5969/obama_says_his_… and Salon http://www.salon.com/2012/05/10/obamas_marriage_epiphany/singleton/
