The third-ranking Democrat in the House of Representatives, Rep. James Clyburn, (D-SC), is breaking with President Barack Obama on marriage equality, reports MSNBC.
Clyburn, who acknowledged his “fundamentalist Christian roots,” says that he has evolved on the issue and now believe that it should not be a states’ issue, but a “national” issue:
“I, like the president, have evolved to a point of marriage equality,” said Clyburn. “I have not always been there. I grew up in a parsonage, a fundamentalist Christian parsonage, and I grew up with that indoctrination. And I have grown to the point that I believe that we have evolved to marriage equality.”
