U.S. Senator Kay Hagan (D-NC) announced Wednesday morning on facebook that she supports gay marriage. The announcement comes on the same day that the U.S. Supreme Court hears the opening arguments for the Defense Of Marriage Act.
“I have a great deal of respect for varying opinions on the issue,” she says. “After much thought and prayer, I have come to my own personal conclusion that we shouldn’t tell people who they can love or who they can marry.”
