Sen. Dodd Comes Out in Favor of Same-Sex 'Marriage'

By Kathleen Gilbert
WASHINGTON, D.C., June 23, 2009 ( - U.S. Senator Chris Dodd (D-CT), a Roman Catholic, on Sunday declared he had changed his position on same-sex "marriage," and now calls law defining marriage between a man and a woman "archaic" and "unfair."
“To my daughters, these couples are married simply because they love each other and want to build a life together," wrote Dodd on his Senate Web site. "That’s what we’ve taught them. The things that make those families different from their own pale in comparison to the commitments that bind those couples together.
"And, really, that’s what marriage should be. It’s about rights and responsibilities and, most of all, love."
