(Valerie Paraso, KFYI) - Two former Arizona Attorneys General say they support gay marriage. Republican Grant Woods and Democrat Terry Goddard are part of the group Arizona Lawyers for the Freedom to Marry.

The group says gay marriages should be recognized under the law. 

Woods tells KFYI, "I think it's the civil rights issue of our time." 

A lawsuit challenging Arizona's gay marriage ban is making its way through federal court, with a ruling expected to come down soon. Woods says if he was still Attorney General, he wouldn't defend the ban because he believes it is unconstitutional.
