It can be said a confluence of challenges has led to a fraying of the social contract, as Americans seem to be losing faith in the ability of our systems of government to deal with even the most tractable problems.

However, history teaches that if the challenges we face today are to be resolved, we must find ways to reach consensus on the underlying causes of the problems and develop responses to them grounded in the best available information and in mutual trust and collaboration. This morning we welcome two distinguished guests who have been doing just that.

MA Group Lauds Obama for Same-Sex Marriage Stance

May 10, 2012

The group MassEquality is applauding President Barack Obama's declaration that he supports same-sex marriage.  WAMC's Tristan O'Neill reports...

After refusing to take a clear stand for months, Obama made the announcement in an interview with ABC News at the White House on Wednesday.

Polling suggests the nation is evenly divided on the issue

MassEquality Executive Director Kara Suffredini says Obama's evolution on the issue is not unlike the experience of many Americans who have come to understand why marriage is important to same-sex couples and their children.
