GOP Senator Kirk Supports Same-Sex Marriage


U.S. Senator Mark Kirk has become one of the most prominent Republican officeholders in the country to support same-sex marriage. 

 

Kirk links his support to a change in perspective following his debilitating stroke last year. He issued a written statement saying, quote, “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.” 

 

Kirk says since his return to the Senate in January, he has tried to conduct himself with an open mind and greater respect for others.

 

The full text of Kirk's statement:

 

"When I climbed the Capitol steps in January, I promised myself that I would return to the Senate with an open mind and greater respect for others.

 

Same-sex couples should have the right to civil marriage. 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."
