Clint Eastwood Comes Out in Support of Same-Sex Marriage
Is it about time states allow gay and lesbian couples to marry or should the law limit marriage between a man and a woman?
NBCNews.com reports actor-director-producer Clint Eastwood has joined more than 100 Republicans in signing a brief addressed to the U.S. Supreme Court arguing gays and lesbians should be allowed to legally marry.
Eastwood also made headlines during the final day of the Republican National Convention last fall when he had a conversation with an empty chair representing President Barack Obama.
The Supreme Court will hear arguments in the case on March 26.
In Georgia, Constitutional Amendment 1 in 2004 made it unconstitutional for the state to recognize or perform same-sex marriages or civil unions. The referendum was approved by 76 percent of voters.
A number of companies, including Apple, Google, Facebook, Amazon and Microsoft are among hundreds of businesses that have signed on to a brief filed with the U.S. Supreme Court arguing that federal same-sex marriage restrictions hurt their businesses.
