SOAP STARS REACT: Obama Supports Marriage Equality; Colleen Zenk, Jane Lynch, Greg Rikaart & More

Celebrities took to Twitter on Wednesday to share their reaction to the ABC News report that President Barack Obama has come out in full support of marriage equality.  He sat down for an interview with GOOD MORNING AMERICA's Robin Roberts which will air on Thursday morning on ABC.

Below is a sample of  the reaction from the soap opera community:

Greg Rikaart ‏ (@gregrikaart)
For any GLBT kid in NC who was feeling scared or less than yesterday, I think and hope it was short lived. Thanks Mr. President.

Jane Lynch (@janemarielynch)
Pretty darn happy today. Thanks Mr President, for supporting the dignity of my family and so many others!

Jason Thompson ‏ (@MyJasonThompson)
And there it is! You make a choice. I vote freedom. RT@thedailybeast: Romney: I Don’t Support Gay Marriage #cheatsheet

Nancy Lee Grahn (@NancyLeeGrahn)
good news today. Emmy nom yes, but my President said Gay marriage should be legal.  This is a good day for open minded, fair thinking, rational people. Not a good day for social conservatives.

Colleen Zenk ‏ (@ColleenZenk)
I couldn't be prouder to be an American at this very moment. Thank you, Mr. President.

Yes! RT @BarackObama: "Same-sex couples should be able to get married."—President Obama

Are Log Cabin Republicans the very definition of " self-hate" ?

  1. Wonderful! Thank you, President Obama. You are a man we can be proud to have as our President. You are not perfect, but when you're right you're right. People need to stop judging and start living right. God doesn't hate anyone. He does hate sin. But wasn't it God who said: "I'll forgive a lot of things for love?" Let's be as forgiving as God is: It'll make the world a better place. Sad in NC to see blacks voting shoulder-to-shoulder with the conservatives who tried to deny their rights. How soon we forget. Love Thy Neighbor as Thyself.
