On gay marriage, Hov says,Â "I've always thought it as something that's holding the country back. You know, what people do in their own homes is their business, and you choose to love whoever you love, that's their business, it's no different than discriminating against blacks.Â It's discrimination, plain and simple."
He continued,Â "I think it's the right thing to do, so whether it cost him votes or not, again,Â it's really not about votes, it's about people. So whether it cost him votes or not, I think it's the right thing to do, as a human being."
