NEWS: Ex-US President Jimmy Carter Says Jesus Would Approve of Gay Marriage

In an interview with HuffPost Live on Tuesday, former US President Jimmy Carter speculated that Jesus would approve of gay marriage.

Said Carter, “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.”

In year 2000, Carter — who claims to be a born-again Christian — severed his 60-year membership with the Southern Baptist Convention, saying the group’s opposition to women as pastors did not align with his Christian beliefs.
