Romney Stands by his Opposition to Gay Marriage
05/10/2012

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Mitt Romney says he believes marriage

should be restricted to one man and one woman and that he's held

that view "since running for office."

Romney on Wednesday called same sex-marriage "a very tender and

sensitive topic" as he contrasted his position with President

Barack Obama's unequivocal declaration of support Wednesday for

allowing same-sex couples to marry.

Obama is the first president in history to support gay marriage.

Polls show the country is evenly divided on the issue.

Romney did not go so far as to accuse Obama of changing his

position on the issue. Questioned by reporters, the presumptive

Republican nominee for president said news reports indicate Obama

has shifted his stance.

Romney said in Oklahoma City yesterday that states should be

able to decide whether to grant certain legal benefits to same-sex

couples.
