Senator Bill Nelson has endorsed gay marriage, the latest in a string of lawmakers to change his position on the issue.
“If we are endowed by our Creator with rights, then why shouldn’t those be attainable by Gays and Lesbians?” Nelson said in a statement to the Tampa Bay Times. “Simply put, if The Lord made homosexuals as well as heterosexuals, why should I discriminate against their civil marriage? I shouldn’t, and I won’t.”
He added that he is adding his voice to those asking the Supreme Court “ to declare the law that prohibits gay marriage unconstitutional.”
