South Carolina Sentor Says He Was Wrong and Now Supports Marriage Equality

Former South Carolina State Senator John Hawkins, who led the charge in South Carolina to amend the constitution to ban same-sex marriage, announced on Wednesday at a speech before the Alliance for Full Acceptance that he now regrets what he did and supports full marriage equality.

 Said Hawkins to WCSC: "I was wrong about pursing the marriage amendment. I wish I hadn't been so strident against it....I'm really hoping that people are going to walk away from this with a little bit of healing...It would be great if everyone who stood against us in the Senate said, 'We were wrong; In fact, you really do deserve equal rights.'" | Charleston, SC | News, Weather, Sports
