(Newser) – The White House is lit up in rainbow colors in commemoration of the Supreme Court's ruling to legalize same-sex marriage. The colors illuminated the north side of the White House as Obama returned this evening from Charleston, South Carolina, where he delivered the eulogy of the funeral of Clementa Pinckney, one of nine people murdered in the massacre at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church last week. Obama broke out into "Amazing Grace" after the 40-minute eulogy. Watch it here. (Read more gay marriage stories.)
