Gwyneth Paltrow supports gay marriage

London: Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow has waded into the ongoing battle over gay marriage in the US, saying she can`t comprehend why it should be an issue for anyone.

In her online weekly newsletter Goop, the 38-year-old actress aimed at those who refuse to tolerate homosexuality and same sex marriage on religious grounds, reported a website.

"A few months ago, in the heat of the tragic teen suicides that came about from intolerance of homosexuality, I saw a man on television who was apologizing for wishing death on gays from his facebook page.

"This member of an Arkansas school board was contrite for the violence in his words, but maintained that his values pertaining to homosexuality would remain, as he felt homosexuality was condemned in the Bible.

"This concept, while foreign to me, is interesting, as it used to justify so much judgement and separation in our society. When my daughter came home from school one day saying that a classmate had two mommies, my response was, `Two mommies? How lucky is she?!` What does it actually say in the Bible that will cause some people to be upset by my line of thinking?" she wrote.
