A Facebook group is urging Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed to "evolve" and come out in support of gay marriage as President Barack Obama did Wednesday.
But in a statement, Reed said he is still "wrestling" with his support of full marriage equality. His full statement:
I respect President Obama’s decision to stand in support of marriage equality. I have fought hard for the rights of gays and lesbians my entire political career from protecting adoption rights for gay and lesbian families, to voting against Georgia’s constitutional ban on same-sex marriage as a state senator, to serving as the state house sponsor for the only hate crimes bill ever passed in the state of Georgia.
