Actress Jane Lynch told CNN's Piers Morgan on Tuesday that she was "blown away" by President Barack Obama's recent endorsement of same sex marriage.

Even though "nothing is going to happen" because of his support for marriage equality, she still appreciated that Obama took the risk of publicly stating his support.

"It's just nice to hear that the guy who's sitting in the big chair in White House supports me and my family," Lynch said.

She said those opposed to same sex marriage should not be letting their "religious dogma" get in the way of the Golden Rule.

"If there's anything wrong with me, it has nothing to do with my orientation. I've got a lot of flaws. But being gay isn't one of them."
