Willie Nelson weighs in on marriage equality

If you’re wondering how Willie Nelson feels about Friday’s Supreme Court decision, wonder no longer.

“I never thought of marriage as something only for men and women,” he said, according to an Alejandro Escovedo Facebook post. “But I’d never marry a guy I didn’t like.”


Nelson knows a thing or two about marriage: he’s tied the knot four times, though he’s been with current spouse Annie D’Angelo since 1991.

The quote comes with a picture of a pink equality painting — where the “equals” sign is composed of blunts. So you can guess how he feels about Oregon’s new marijuana laws, too. Nelson is at the Edgefield tonight, a few days too early to legally carry an ounce, though the legendary country outlaw presumably won’t let that stop him.
