Biden's Marriage of Convenience
When Sen. Joe Biden walked onto the "Ellen DeGeneres" stage to David Bowie's song "Changes," the irony wasn't lost on values voters. In the days leading up to his interview, Sen. Barack Obama's running mate has made some significant changes to his position on marriage, namely that he supports redefining it.
At the Vice Presidential debate just 18 days ago this was the exchange between the candidates and moderator Gwen Ifill.
GOV. SARAH PALIN: ...I will tell Americans straight up that I don't support defining marriage as anything but between one man and one woman...I'm being as straight up with Americans as I can in my non-support for anything but a traditional definition of marriage...
IFILL: Let's try to avoid nuance, Senator. Do you support gay marriage?
BIDEN: No. Barack Obama nor I support redefining from a civil side what constitutes marriage. We do not support that.
Last week, the Democratic candidate took a serious detour from his opposition to same-sex "marriage," telling an IN Los Angeles reporter that he opposes Proposition 8, California's marriage protection amendment. This morning on "Ellen," Biden reiterated that view and added, "If I lived in California, I'd clearly vote against Prop 8."
Wonder what the Bishop's will think of this latest slap in the face on Church teaching?
