Kentucky, USA: State Lt. Governor Supports Marriage Equality

Written by scott on April 9th, 2013

Kentucky Lt. Gov. Jerry AbramsonA little happy news out of Kentucky – Lt. Gov. Jerry Abramson just endorsed marriage equality. LEO Weekly reports:

I give you Lt. Gov. Jerry Abramson, marriage equality supporter: “I don’t believe government should judge which adults can and which cannot make a loving, life-long commitment to each other. That’s why both Madeline and I support marriage equality for all adults.”

The Governor refused to take a stand, issuing this squishy response:

“In regard to marriage, Kentuckians overwhelmingly voted in favor of a constitutional amendment that banned same-gender marriage and have made the decision for the Commonwealth.”

But at least that’s some progress in a state with only 33% support for marriage equality. :)
