President Obama reacted quickly to the Supreme Court decision to redefine marriage today, sending out a message on Twitter.

“Today is a big step in our march toward equality. Gay and lesbian couples now have the right to marry, just like anyone else,” he wrote on his Twitter account. He signed his message with the hashtag “#LoveWins.”

The White House Twitter account also changed its avatar with a graphic of a rainbow colored White House.

Obama has scheduled a statement in the Rose Garden at 11:00 a.m. before he departs for Charleston, S.C. to deliver a eulogy for slain pastor and South Carolina state Senator Clementa Pinckney.
