N.J. Congressman
Has Change of Heart on Gay Marriage

New Jersey congressman Steve Rothman announced this week that he supports the legalization of same-sex marriage, according to the Bergen Record. The article says Rothman's change in position was motivated by the recent marriage of his lesbian stepdaughter (and the subsequent addition of three new stepchildren to the family).

The article says Rothman's change in position was motivated by the recent marriage of his lesbian stepdaughter (and the subsequent addition of three new stepchildren to the family). "Life can be short and hurtful for some," the congressman explained to the Record. "Anytime anyone in the community speaks out against discrimination, it advances the cause of ending discrimination." Rothman, a Democrat, has joined 51 other representatives in the LGBT Equality Caucus, which is geared toward raising awareness of LGBT issues in Congress. (The Advocate)
