Biden 'absolutely comfortable' with gay marriage
By DONOVAN SLACK | 5/6/12 9:58 AM EDT
Vice President Joe Biden said he doesn't know if a second Obama administration would support same-sex marriage, but he said he's "absolutely comfortable" with it.
"Look-- I just think-- that-- the good news is that as more and more Americans become to understand what this is all about is a simple proposition. Who do you love? Who do you love? And will you be loyal to the person you love? And that's what people are finding out is what-- what all marriages, at their root, are about. Whe-- whether they're-- marriages of lesbians or gay men or heterosexuals," Biden said in an interview that aired Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press."
President Barack Obama has said his views are still evolving on the matter, although he is for civil unions.
"I am vice president of the United States of America. The president sets the policy. I am absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, women marrying women, and heterosexual men and women marrying another are entitled to the same exact rights, all the civil rights, all the civil liberties. And quite frankly, I don't see much of a distinction-- beyond that," Biden said.
He suggested to host David Gregory that as society has become accustomed to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered people,the door has opened for instituting federal measures to protect them, from executive orders banning discrimination to the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell.

That’s the whole point isn’t it? Ultimately natural law and the natural family must be destroyed to establish the Socialist “Utopia” on earth.
This is hilarious.
Conservatives can be forgiven for not realizing that Obama had not officially endorsed gay marriage (while fervently opposing any effort to stop it) out of fear of alienating voters.
Gay activists seem to be fed up with Obama’s failure to admit the obvious.
I am watching the lib channels NBC, MSNBC and CNN today grill the Obama admin on this AGAIN after yesterday and they want him to come out for Gay marriage explicitly in his platform and are giving him a bit of grief over it.
Sleazy Obama naturally is trying to play it both ways claiming he is ‘evolving’ on Homo-marriage refusing to admit he is for it, which he obviously is, so he can keep a few suckers votes who don’t like the idea.
Obama wants to wait till AFTER the election before he fully and safely ‘evolves’ and comes out fully.
Fortunately for Obama, Romney will avoid trying to take advantage of this because he lives in a glass house.
Romney is locked!
Yeah, well, he’s an adult, and single.
BTW, it is not called ‘gay marriage’ anymore, the new name is ‘marriage equality’ because that name polls much better.
The term ‘State sanctioned perversion’ is even less PC.
Perverts are perverts....PC can kiss my ass!~
Yes I noticed that. Taking that literally say I hit my head and decide I want FOUR wives as the HOLY QURAN says I'm entitled (The Prophet can have as many as he wants, lucky bastard) as long as I give them each 10 of my $40 treasure. How could they possibly argue against my "marriage equality" as a Mohammedian or Orthodox Mormon? What if I fall in love with a comely lady Chimp? I'm told their DNA is 98% the same as ours and cross breeding could be possible. What about my half-Chimp son? Can he choose which species he wants to marry? Can he be President if his mother's not a citizen? What's 35 in Chimp years? Sorry, I digress.
I have wondered about that too. I suspect the reason that polygamous marriage is illegal and same-sex marriage becomes legal in more instances, is that gays are more of an "activist" group, have more gay lawyers, more lib lawyers, and of course the media on their side.
That's just what bisexuals do!!! Great double entendre.! (Larry Sinclair would appreciate it.) LOL!!!
Well, he has been single for a long time. Who’s the lucky boy?
Thanks for the ping!
