  1. This twit is always making gaffes.

      Tee shoe is on the other foot dear, big time! What a twat you are!

      1. Robert in S. Kensington 6 May 2012, 4:59pm

        The shoe…..

    2. Note the anti gay Christian like this one who calls them self “Jean” who come here to make trouble and stir up the LGBT people with their bad news and evil statements about pro gay news like this news release about the Vice President of the United States standing up for gay marriage. This drives the already crazy anti gay Christians even more insane. This is the kind of infiltration the anti gay Christians, Catholics and Mormons are doing to try and disrupt and destroy gay groups and the LGBT community around the word. Expose these evil anti gay Christians when you see or find them so other LGBT people know who they are.

    3. Still laughing out loud at you Jean.

    4. Not as many as you seem to make Jean…. like being on the wrong side of history

    5. . although i’m more of a twit , sometimes I inject myself with my own urine.

      1. where is your head Jean. Do you think remarks like that gain you any sort of credibility. you are a sad case. too bad for you.

      2. Give bleach a go, or why not try Brasso straight out of the tin? Still laughing at you out loud Jean sweetie.

        Doesn’t surprise me, you’re one sick twat!

  2. Great news. This is the biggest endorsement that the US government can realistically make pre-election.

    1. Robert in S. Kensington 6 May 2012, 5:02pm

      Indeed, huge, a first for any sitting vice-president, history made already. Take that, Tory back-stabbing-benchers!

    2. I thought so too

      Then Obama spoke out

      WOW!

  3. God Bless The Vice President of the United States of America for standing up for gay marriage, the right thing to do, is to give equal and civil rights to all Americans.

  4. Robert in S. Kensington 6 May 2012, 5:00pm

    It was not so long ago he opposed it. Well done, VP Biden and thank you. I hope this gets coverage in our UK media.

  5. Great news. Go Joe!

    This is not unexpected from Joe Biden. He is an Irish American from Pennsylvania, and now Delaware and was the United States first RC veep.. he tends to be liberal and he has a history of sponsoring liberal and socialist bills. He is, unusually for Vice presidents, very close to The President and advises on almost all the decisions the President makes so we can expect announcements of advantage to American GLBs in the New Year when he and Obama start their second term.

  7. I certainly appreciate his stand on this, its awesome. Living in Texas this will unfortunately go over like a lead balloon in this state. If we could get the Democrats to quit supporting those that are too lazy to work and the illegal foreign nationals, their politics would go a lot farther in being the party to vote for.

    1. your understanding of democratic policy is about as sophisticated as a red neck tea-bagger’s wacko perspective

    2. Paddyswurds 7 May 2012, 11:18am

      @Keith,
      …….That is rich, coming from one of the the most feckless and backward States in the Union, which produced a president George (the French don’t have a word for Entrepreneur) Bush, who presided over the worst economic crash since the Great Depression of the Twenties and Thirties and who brought the World into an unnecessary war through out and out lies.

  8. Unfortunately, the Obama team seem to already be tracking back on his comments… :( From Twitter:

    David Axelrod ‏ @davidaxelrod

    @chucktodd @meetthepress What VP said-that all married couples should have exactly the same legal rights-is precisely POTUS’s position.

    Why can’t they just show some balls and back up what Mr Biden obviously believes in. Marriage equality will be a part of the democratic platform in no time anyway, so why delay the inevitable?

    Obama stands to lose nothing from endorsing marriage equality; those who disagree with him on social issues like this were never going to give him their vote anyway…

      That wasn’t the case in California though, where they voted for prop 8 at the same time as voting him in. However, in California, with all the education on the subject resulting from the trials, attitudes appear to have become more favourable.

    2. Didnt back track very far did they?

      Obama spoke out in support of equal marriage! YEY YEY YEY

  9. The Vice President needs to get the government involved in stopping the ex gay therapy mad men, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1w3-tOfGEtA

  10. Gay activist Paul Mitchell 7 May 2012, 5:40am

    It is not Will and Grace that changed minds in the United States.

    It is the fact that families, friends and works colleagues are gay and have came out gay and that is what is changing hearts and minds for most or some people!

    It is in fact 2012 and most people have moved on – except for Republicans, Methodists and Catholics!

    Some people in fact have got better things to do such as advocating for gay rights, having a job and being an activist to contact lawmakers to vote for gay marriages and do not spend our lives in front of the TV or watching television!

  11. Joe Biden did NOT endorse gay ‘marriage’. The militant gay ‘marriage’ lobby are experts in twisting people’s words to mean ‘support’ for the ‘completely-nuts’ idea of gay ‘marriage’.

    The majority of people in the United states know that gay ‘marriage’ is a mad idea and thats all that matters. They would continue to vote to ban it.

    1. Poor baby. You will be eating those words soon enough.

    2. Er yes Joe Biden did endorse same sex marriage – so did President Obama!

      Didn’t you say no President ever would, Ken?

      How wrong you were

  12. Fabulous to watch the video and see the Vice President of the USA say “I am absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, women marrying women and heterosexual men marrying women 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.” and 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? And that’s what people are finding out what all marriages at their root are about. Whether they are marriages of lesbians or gay men or heterosexuals.”

    Clear, simple language that can not be spun to mean anything other than the VP supports the right of gay couples to marry. (Although some ignorant trolls like Ken may try!).

    Its part of the process of the Obama plan to slowly evolve to supporting gay couples marrying.

      And don’t forget about Secretary of State Hillary Clnton’s fine speech to the United Nations in favor of univeral human rights for the GLBTQ community throughout the world. This was done with Obama’s approval and backed up by his executive orders to make foreign aid conditional upon their human rights records, including their treatment of their GLBTQ citizens. The speechs of Obama’s key administration members gives us tremendous hope for what we can expect from a re-elected Obama adminisitration, especially if combined with a Democratic majority in both the Senate and the House as well as new rules in the Senate to controll and prevent misuse of the filibutser in the new Senate/

    That is simply not true, and anyone who knows American politics will know that NO President makes radical moves in his first term, if he wants a second.
    Jimmy Carter made that mistake and go turfed out in favour of a two bit Hollywood actor with the beginnings of Alzheimers Disease, after just one term even though he successfully negotiated with the Iranians to bring the US embassy hostages home safely….
    Obama and Biden will win the second term they need and then we will see the true nature of this Administration. For one thing Americas Black population will not let their first African American president be beaten by the Likes of the moron, i mean mormon, Mit Romney…….

    1. Paddyswurds 7 May 2012, 11:32am

      That post was meant as a reply to Tom above

  14. Avalokiteshvara 7 May 2012, 11:40am

    A senior judge in America pointed out the other day that opponents of marriage equality are very obviously not driven by concern for marriage, but by bigotry towards gay people, otherwise they would be aggressively campaigning against divorce, which they are not. In fact many of the opponents are divorced themselves.

  15. Robert in S. Kensington 7 May 2012, 3:07pm

    He’s now been enjoined by U.S. Secretary for Education, Arne Duncan.

    1. and Obama!
