    In 2012, the New York Republican said, “New York State allows all its citizens the freedom to marry the person they love.

    The Ohio senator is definitely for equality. In 2013, he said, “I have come to believe that if two people are prepared to make a lifetime commitment to love and care for each other in good times and in bad, the government shouldn’t deny them the opportunity to get married.” Such a wonderful perspective.

    This senator from Illinois has a “life is too short” attitude toward gay marriage, and cheers to that. “Same-sex couples should have the right to civil marriage,” he said. “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.” [/item
