Jimmy Carter: Jesus would approve of gay marriage

 | 

Former President Jimmy Carter said in an interview that he thinks Jesus would approve of gay marriage.

"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," Carter said in a HuffPost Live interview with Marc Lamont Hill published Tuesday.

"I believe Jesus would approve gay marriage," he said. "That's just my own personal opinion."
