Philadelphia's Republican governor is making waves with his newly expressed support for employment nondiscrimination protections for LGBT people in his state.
Pennsylvania Rep. Brian Sims wrote a Facebook status update in response to governor Tom Corbett's interview on Friday, in which the Republican governor compared same-sex marriage to incest.
Gov. Corbett makes an awkward comparison about marriage equality and incest.
Meanwhile, a state official said that extending marriage benefits to same-sex couples was like 'giving money to people's pets.'
More than 170 same-sex couples have already received marriage licenses since county official D. Bruce Hanes announced in July that he'd defy state law and marry gay and lesbian couples.
Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane said she "cannot ethically defend the constitutionality of Pennsylvania's version of DOMA. I believe it to be wholly unconstitutional."
