McCaskill Cites Faith in Marriage Support

posted on March 25, 2013

Senator Claire McCaskill of Missouri announced her support for same-sex marriage in a Tumblr post, writes Michael J. O’Loughlin of Religion News Service. McCaskill’s announcement began with a verse from 1 Corinthians: “And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” The post continued, “I have come to the conclusion that our government should not limit the right to marry based on who you love. While churches should never be required to conduct marriages outside of their religious beliefs, neither should the government tell people who they have a right to marry.”
