Jimmy Carter: ‘Jesus would approve gay marriage’

Jesus would approve of same-sex marriage, former President Jimmy Carter said Tuesday.

“I believe Jesus would approve gay marriage, but that’s just my own personal belief,” the Democrat said in an interview on HuffPost Live. 

{mosads}”I think Jesus would encourage any love affair if it was honest and sincere and was not damaging to anyone else, and I don’t see that gay marriage damages anyone else,” he added.

Supporters have hailed the Supreme Court’s June 26 decision to strike down state bans on same-sex marriage and legalize it across the country, while opponents have blasted the 5-4 decision as judicial overreach.

Carter, 90, has stepped out for several interviews to promote his new book, which was published Tuesday.
