Bill Maher Predicts Obama Backing Marriage Equality


Comedian and HBO talk show host Bill Maher predicted that President Barack Obama will eventually come around to supporting marriage equality if he is elected to a second term in November.

Maher also said Obama may come out as an atheist, despite his long history of church membership. In an exchange with Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, and filmmakers Rob Reiner, and Alexandra Peloi, Maher admits that Obama's current stance is "to the right of" former First Lady Laura Bush and former Vice President Dick Cheney who have both said that marriage equality should be made legal.

"And I think he will [come out in favor of gay marriage]," he said according to video on Real Clear Politics. "I think in the second term, when he's got nothing to lose you're going to see the real Obama come out, including his admission that he's an atheist too," Maher said.
