Celebrities Petition Obama to Back Gay Marriage; Obama Says His Views on Gay Marriage "Evolving"

Some entertainment and sports celebrities -- along with some business leaders -- have signed a letter asking President Obama to support gay marriage, the Christian Broadcast Network website reports today (March 15, 2011).

Among those who signed the petition were actors Anne Hathaway, Martin Sheen, and Jane Lynch, as well as NFL linebacker Scott Fujita and Twitter founder Jack Dorsey.

President Obama -- who supports civil unions for gay couples -- said that his views on gay marriage are "evolving."

Last month, President Obama decided that the federal government would no longer defend DOMA -- the Defense of Marriage Act -- which barred the federal government from recognizing same-sex unions.
