Biden’s office now says he’s “evolving” on marriage, backs off earlier support

Just got this from a Biden spokesperson:

“The Vice President was saying what the President has said previously – that committed and loving same-sex couples deserve the same rights and protections enjoyed by all Americans, and that we oppose any effort to rollback those rights. That’s why we stopped defending the constitutionality of section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act in legal challenges and support legislation to repeal it. Beyond that, the Vice President was expressing that he too is evolving on the issue, after meeting so many committed couples and families in this country.”

No he wasn’t. The VP explained that all marriages, gay and straight, are the same. See my earlier post.
