Greensboro, NC -- U.S. Senator, Kay Hagan (D-NC) is changing her position on the issue of marriage equality. That's after a recent post to her Facebook page and also as the Supreme Court is in its second day of hearing two gay marriage cases.
Hagan said on in her Facebook post, "After much thought and prayer, I have come to my own personal conclusion that we shouldn't tell people who they can love or who they can marry."
Last year she opposed Amendment One because of the possible "negative consequences" it could have posed to families in our state and the economy. Hagan had much to say about families in her Facebook post, "The Fabric of North Carolina and what makes our state so special is our families and our common desire for a brighter future for our children. No matter what your family looks like, we all want the same thing four our families - happiness, health, prosperity, a bright future for our children and grandchildren."
She also stated religious institutions should have freedom on the issue, "No church or minister should ever have to conduct a marriage that is inconsistent with their religious beliefs. But I think as a civil institution, this issue's time has come and we need to move forward."
Hagan also says she's staying focused on her number one issue and that's jobs and the economy for North Carolina.
