Joe Biden Basically Admits To Support For Marriage Equality
"Gregory: …The president has said that his views on gay marriage, on same-sex marriage have evolved, but he’s opposed to it. you’re opposed to it. have your views evolved?
Biden: I just think that the good news is that as more and more Americans come 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? That’s what people are finding out is what all marriages at their root are about. Whether they’re marriages of lesbians or gay men or heterosexuals.
Gregory: Is that what you believe now?
Biden: that’s what i believe.
Gregory: And you’re comfortable with same-sex marriage now?
Biden: I… look, 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.
Gregory: In a second term, will this administration come out behind same-sex marriage, the institution of marriage?
Biden: Well, I can’t speak to that. I… I don’t know the answer to that."
Queerty's got a video, too.
