Marie Osmond On Marriage Equality...

Entertainer (and famous Mormon) Marie Osmond has long supported her out lesbian daughter, and this week tells Diane Sawyer she believes in marriage equality:

"The God that I believe in is a god of love, not fear. I don't tell my children if you're not good you're going to Hell. I tell my children that God will be there for them when they struggle. That's the God I believe in...I believe in [my lesbian daughter's] civil rights, as a mother. I think my daughter deserves everything that she desires in life. She's a good girl. She's a wonderful child. I don't think God made one color flower. I think he made many."

This week, as marriage equality was debated in the US Supreme Court, several of Marie's fellow Osmond's including her brother Alan hosted a rally "benefitting the protection of marriage between a man and a woman" at the Utah capitol. Screw them... YAY Marie Osmond:
