(AP) Pennsylvania's governor says he's sorry if anyone was offended when he compared gay marriage to the marriage of a brother and sister during a TV interview.


Republican Gov. Tom Corbett issued a statement Friday saying his "words were not intended to offend anyone" and apologizing if they did.


Corbett says his comment during the WHP-TV morning news interview was meant to provide an example of the categories of people who aren't legally entitled to obtain marriage licenses in Pennsylvania.


In the interview, Corbett says his lawyers made an inappropriate analogy in a recent court filing, comparing same-sex marriage to the marriage of children. He says the marriage of a brother and sister is a better analogy.


Pennsylvania is the only state in the Northeast that allows neither gay marriage nor civil unions.
