Former Democratic president Jimmy Carter is proving again why he’s considered America’s gentle moral authority by speaking out again in favor of same-sex marriage rights.

As far back as 2014, Carter was speaking up for human rights. Speaking to a packed house at Grand Rapids Community College, Carter responded to a question about LGBT rights, and had this response: “I never knew of any word or action of Jesus Christ that discriminated against anyone.”
While he said in 2012, ““I personally think it is very fine for gay people to be married in civil ceremonies,” and shortly after, Carter took it a step further.
“In all of [Jesus’] teachings about multiple things -– he never said that gay people should be condemned. I personally think it is very fine for gay people to be married in civil ceremonies,” Carter told the Huffington Post, in an interview.
Now, Carter is adding a layer of religious blessing to his support. Instead of saying Jesus wouldn’t be against same-sex marriage, now he’s positing that Jesus would support it.
“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, a born-again Christian, told HuffPost Live.
