Does Biden Make Obama Look Bad on Gay Marriage?

On yesterday’s “Meet the Press,” Vice President Joe Biden told host David Gregory that he is “absolutely comfortable with… men marrying men, women marrying women.” Biden gave credit to the TV show “Will & Grace”, which featured numerous openly-gay characters, for helping change his position.

This puts him at odds with President Obama, who supports gay rights but has said repeatedly that he believe marriage should be between a man and a woman. He has also noted that his views on the matter are evolving.

Here are some cartoons about the contentious issue. What do you think – should same-sex couples be allowed to marry each other? Comment below or drop a note on our Facebook page.

If Americans want to define marriage according to the Bible or other religious institutions, then I think only churches/religious organizations should perform marriage ceremonies. Any civil ceremonies, done by Justices of the Peace, etc. should be called Civil Unions, for straight or gay couples. The fact that non-religious straight couples would be in an uproar over this, and demand they have the right to get married too, just highlights the fact that marriage and civil unions are not equal. And denying marriage to any group, is discrimination.
