Watch: President Obama Hopes The Supreme Court Will Legalize Same-Sex Marriage In The US

"Why would the law treat [gays] differently?"
I'm hopeful the Supreme Court comes to the right decision

A week ago today, we learned that the US Supreme Court has decided to take up the case that will determine — once and for all — the legality of same-sex marriage here in the United States. In an interview at the White House with You Tube star GloZell Green, President Obama expressed his desire for the Supreme Court to come “to the right decision” and legalize same-sex marriage in our country. President Obama has spoken openly about his support for marriage equality in the past, so his comments in the interview embedded above aren’t a big surprise … but it’s still nice to hear our president endorse the equal treatment of all US citizens when it comes to marriage equality. The full interview is 47 minutes long but you can skip to the 23:40 mark of the video to hear Obama‘s comments on the upcoming Supreme Court decision.

Sarah Michelle Gellar’s Film ‘Veronika Decides To Die’ Is FINALLY Released Here In The US

Straight to VOD

Remember that movie that Sarah Michelle Gellar filmed in NYC that was titled Veronika Decides to Die? Of course you don’t because she filmed the movie way back in 2008, which is basically a million years ago. Some of you PITNB old schoolers may remember this SMG film because, at the time, I was very excited that Gellar was returning to us for the first time since Buffy the Vampire Slayer went off the air. Since that time, SMG has starred in two failed TV shows — Ringer on The CW and The Crazy Ones on CBS — and Veronika was never released … until now. Almost 7 years after it was filmed, Veronika Decides to Die is finally being released here in the US … via Video On Demand. Click below to learn more/be reminded of this new old SMG movie and watch a clip of footage from Veronika Decides to Die. More »
