“If the president’s parents had lived in Virginia, their marriage would have been unlawful. Doesn’t that indicate there’s been quite a change in our understanding of what people are entitled to marry? Couldn’t an argument be made that there’s been a similar evolution with respect to same-sex marriage?”

— U.S. District Court Judge Vaughn Walker, referring to the fact that President Barack Obama’s mother was white and his father was African American, when Charles Cooper, the lead attorney for the Yes on 8 team, noted that Obama has also expressed opposition to same-sex marriages.
