White House Senior Advisor David Axelrod defends Obama's contradictory position that he supports equality for gays and lesbians but is against same-sex marriage.
"He supports equality for gay and lesbian couples...in benefits and other issues and that has been effectuated in federal agencies under his control."

Civil unions are not marriage.
