The Rev Jesse Jackson has called for California’s ban on gay marriage to be struck down.
The Baptist minister and civil rights activist spoke at a gathering outside the San Francisco appeals court where the latest hearings on the ban are taking place.
Rev Jackson has previously opposed Proposition 8 but stopped short of supporting gay marriage.
But in a speech on Monday, he said: “Marriage is based on love and commitment – not on sexual orientation. I support the right for any person to marry the person of their choosing.”
The gathering outside the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals courthouse was organised by Marriage Equality USA. HERE

REAL HERO/REAL LIFE: Bishop John Shelby Spong
“I was simply interpreting a rising consciousness,” he said. “Whether it was race or women or homosexual people, the issue was always the same: fighting against anything that dehumanizes a child of God on the basis of an external characteristic.” Bishop John Shelby Spong (click on his photo)
IT GETS BETTER--Archbishop Desmond Tutu supports LGBT full acceptance and inclusion too!
¨Churches say that the expression of love in a heterosexual monogamous relationship includes the physical, the touching, embracing, kissing, the genital act - the totality of our love makes each of us grow to become increasingly godlike and compassionate. If this is so for the heterosexual, what earthly reason have we to say that it is not the case with the homosexual?¨ Anglican Archbishop Desmond Tutu
