Rev. Otis Moss III on Gay Marriage 'We Should Support the Rights of All'

Otis Moss III, the pastor of Barack Obama's former Chicago church, recently spoke out in favor of the president's support for gay marriage. In a SPIEGEL ONLINE interview, Moss talks about his decision to defend Obama and argues that it is not same-sex relationships but high unemployment and a lack of education that are destroying the institution of marriage.
