In the latest sign of just how far the administration has embraced same-sex marriage and the expansion of federal benefits to married gay couples, the Department of Labor headquarters building hosted a rooftop wedding between a worker and his partner Wednesday night.
Officials confirmed Thursday the wedding between a regional solicitor and his longtime mate. A reception in a conference room followed. No names were offered.
An official called it a low-key ceremony during which no federal funds were used. Labor Secretary Thomas Perez did not attend.
It is believed to be the first-ever same-sex marriage in a Cabinet-level headquarters building.
The wedding marked the latest demonstration by the administration and prominent Washingtonians to endorse and support same sex marriage. Before the wedding at the Frances Perkins Building at the base of Capitol Hill, Perez ordered that legally married same-sex couples be offered the same federal rights as other married couples when it comes to pensions, 401(k)s, health plans and other employee benefits, even if they live in states that don't recognize their union.
And just last month, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg officiated a same-sex marriage that included the president of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Michael M. Kaiser.

Neither will ever know what labor is.
So a couple of perverted degenerates used government property for their own disgusting little party?
How nice. Good to know the rest of us had to pay for it.
They can pretend they are married.
But they are not.
The Sodom and Gomorrah Party rules in DC.
Maybe Barry can rent them the Lincoln bedroom,too.
“marriage”, “wedding”, “reception”, “ceremony”
How many legs does a dog have if you call its tail a leg?”
“Still four. Calling a tail a leg doesn’t make it a leg.”
Note that, unlike the "athiest" Thomas Jefferson created by FDR's activist justices to help them sweep 10th Amendment protected state power to address religious issues under the carpet, the real Thomas Jefferson attended Christian worship services in the House hall.
One reason that Christian worship services are no longer held in government buildings in the nation's capital is because citizens have forgotten the Constitution and its history, seemingly learning the Constitution solely by how acitivist justices interpret it.
This is called “rubbing it in the peasants faces” with the added feature of the hillbillies paying for it. Was Barry the Matron of Honor?
Isn’t use of federal property for such personal events highly improper?
What if I wanted to get married in the Lincoln Memorial?
A Labor Department worker and his “partner.” What kind of partner? Tennis partner? Business? Bridge?
Reminds me of the Moon cult mass weddings in Korea.
Interpretation is translation. Now since any word can mean anything, and that the people are ignorant drones doing the interpretation of some con in black robe, we are heading towards a Tower of Babel event where no one speaks the same language.
