President Barack Obama says the U.S. Supreme Court’s tacit approval of gay marriage is the court’s most consequential action of his presidency.
On Oct. 6, the court let stand appeals court decisions overturning voter-approved gay marriage bans in several state, an action that opened the door to making gay marriage legal in 30 states.
The president said the court’s decision is the best of his two terms.
Even though the court did not take direct action expanding gay rights, he said the court sent a “consequential and powerful signal of the changes that have taken place in society and that the law is having to catch up.”
Several gay marriage cases are still making their way to the Supreme Court.
