Sens. Mark Kirk (R-Illinois) and Tom Carper (D-Delaware) are on board with marriage equality
U.S. Senators Mark Kirk (R-Illinois) and Tom Carper (D-Delaware) have announced they are endorsing marriage equality. I will provide links just shortly.
"When I climbed the Capitol steps in January, I promised myself that I would return to the Senate with an open mind and greater respect for others.
"Same-sex couples should have the right to civil marriage. Our time on this Earth is limited, I know that better than most. Life comes down to who you love and who loves you back-- government has no place in the middle."
"As our society has changed and evolved, so too has the public's opinion on gay marriage – and so has mine. I pray every day for God to grant me the wisdom to do what is right. Through my prayers and conversations with my family and countless friends and Delawareans, I've been reminded of the power of one of my core values: the Golden Rule. It calls on us to treat others as we want to be treated. That means, to me, that all Americans ultimately should be free to marry the people they love and intend to share their lives with, regardless of their sexual orientation, and that's why today, after a great deal of soul searching, I'm endorsing marriage equality."
Mark Kirk has always been a moderate. Good for him.
I was hoping that after Laura Ingraham was diagnosed with breast cancer she would undergo a political conversion. Strangely enough, her brush with death didn't change her world view at all.
What R3 said. How brave of him to reach his conclusion whilst sucking another cock.
There are plenty of closeted politicians who do not support same sex marriage (Lindsey Graham, Aaron Schock most obviously) so lets not attack him for that.
He came out for it when he didn't have to, that is a good thing.
We'll still continue, thanks, R5.
