(Reuters) - U.S. Democratic Representative Barney Frank wed his longtime partner, James Ready, on Saturday, becoming the first sitting congressman to enter into a same-sex marriage.
Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick officiated the ceremony and added some levity by saying Frank, 72, and Ready, 42, had vowed to love each other through Democratic and Republican administrations alike, and even through appearances on Fox News, according to Al Green, a Democratic congressman from Texas.
"Barney was beaming," said Green, who attended the ceremony. He added that Frank, a champion of gay rights and the sweeping reform of Wall Street, shed a tear during the ceremony.
After exchanging their vows, Frank and Ready embraced each other, Green said. "It was no different than any other wedding I've attended when you have two people who are in love with each other," Green said.

Since. He didn’t obliterate this event in a pillar of fire, I think God owes Sodom and Gomorrah an apology.
Tonight Barney the blushing bride becomes a real woman.
Perhaps in nine months there'll be a precious little bundle.
You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination (Leviticus 18:22; see also Leviticus 20:13).
This is true. Absolutely, they are no more married today than they were a week ago, that is why there was a tear. Call it ANYTHING but it ain´t Holy Matrimony.
Good riddance to Barney Frank, whatg a disgusting piece of human debris.
After waiting so long to tie the knot I hope they have a wonderful honeymoon together.
It would be a shame if it turned out to be a bummer.
In days past this would be a criminal offense punishable with public lashings.

Was Barney the blushing bride or the handsome groom?
Eeer, scratch that last part.
Barney is too damn ugly to ever be a bride.
If you can deal with this thread, prepare yourself for...
I call it play-pretend. I’ll bet that’s what Frank will be calling it when the mister sues for ‘alimony.’
This is soooooo disgusting. I wonder if Ready likes Barney Frank with or without teeth. Inquiring minds,,,,,nah! To sick even for me.
Considering that the speaker is a Democrat Congressman, this may well be true.
I think, in Barneys case, that would be “bwide”.
Elmer “Fwank” Fudd went huntin and found a bwide. What a pair, Ready Frank....LOL
Barnie Frank is getting beamed tonight.
I am not going to urbandictionary.com to see what that means.
I wonder who rode who over the threshhold.....
