Joe Biden has come out in favor of same-sex marriage, as has Secretary of Education Arne Duncan. Good for them, I say. Gays, lesbians and bisexuals did not choose to be gay, lesbian or bisexual any more than I chose to be straight, and they shouldn’t be penalized for a sexual orientation they have no control over by not being allowed to get married.
The White House informs us that the president’s position on gay marriage is still “evolving.” It has been in the course of “evolving” for a couple of years now. One wonders when evolution will finally set in.
Or, to ask the question that others are asking, when will Barack Obama be as courageous as Dick Cheney is in supporting same-sex marriage?
