Biden: I'm 'absolutely comfortable' with gay marriage (Video)
First Read ^ | 5/6/2012 | Carrier Daln

Vice President Joe Biden on Sunday said that's he's "absolutely comfortable" with married same-sex couples being granted the same rights as heterosexual pairs.

"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," he told NBC's David Gregory on "Meet the Press." "And quite frankly, I don't see much of a distinction beyond that." (Msnbc.com is a joint venture of Microsoft and NBC Universal.)

President Barack Obama has said his position on same sex marriage is "evolving," and he supported civil unions but opposed marriage for gay couples during the 2008 campaign. Biden noted Sunday that the "president sets the policy" and that he did not know if the administration would formally come out in favor of same-sex marriage in the president's second term should he be re-elected.

But the vice president said that attitudes about gay marriage in America are changing in favor of greater tolerance for loving homosexual partners.

"The good news is that as more and more Americans become to understand what this is all about is a simple proposition," he said. "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."

An aide pointed to the administration's efforts to challenge the Defense of Marriage Act and said that the vice president's comments only reiterated Obama's past support for "committed and loving same-sex couples."

Goofy Joe say's he's a Catholic. Apparently he's never read his Bible, church doctine or the Ten Commandments.

I don't know whether his 'children' are all married or not, but it would be interesting if one of them would marry a same sexer!

The trash who occupies the White Hut's oval ofrice and this POS are beyond contempt!

Joe would say he was comfortable with a 10 inch spike driven up his dirt chute if the Democrats told him to say it.

I have said many times that Democrats only have one religion, the Democrat party.

Catholicism means nothing to Joe ,but a few thousand catholic votes he may get by claiminmg to be a part of it.

He is not only an idiot, but an Apostate Catholic, like so many in Government today.

More Kabuki theater.

This is just part 2 of the pretext to getting Plugs off the ticket to make room for youknowwho. Part 1 was his gaffe this AM calling The Mittster "President Romney".

I never thought I would see the day where a president or vice president would advocate same sex marriage.

I would suggest that Slow Joe divorce his wife and find a queer that will have him!

Election-year pandering. Once Obama lets us get taken over by Muslims things will certainly change with respect to gays.

Advocate, promote, support, condone gay marriage.

Only this administration.

Only this administration.

The GOP elite have decided they like it too, so you can be pretty sure the gay lobby will have a friend in the White House no matter who wins the fall election.

Forgive him.

Slow Joe just does not understand anything beyond the basic alphabet and the numbers 1 to...um.....whatever.

That’s why he is a liberal democrat.

Well, he said that he was “evolving” on the issue. Or was that “rotating” ?

The Church in America - officially, at least — is still growing a spine. Right now what it thinks is a spine is (IMHO) going to be a disappointment.

“Advocate, promote, support, condone gay marriage. Only this administration.”

I don’t think so. Romney was on the side of gays and gay marriage in Mass., and gay marriage came into being there when he was governor.

If he wins, he is the head of the Repubican Party and that is disgusting. If he loses, he is not. I won’t vote for this purveyor of same sex marriage.

What about polygamy? Incest between two adults?

Pray hard that nothing happens to Obama. Imagine if Biden were to rise to the Presidency.

I look for Obozo to come out of the close with Biden.

There’s a lot in common between Biden and Gore.

They are both incredibly stupid.
