Who would have thought, even ten years ago, that we as a society would become more accepting of homosexuality. There was so much backlash and prejudice against the LGBTQ community so it is very impressive that we have moved forward so quickly. Joe Biden marrying two gay officials at the White House is definitely a testament to this movement.
The act of Joe Biden marrying these gentlemen is a sign that so much more can be accomplished than just the equality of marriage. Joe Biden has shown that the future in the white house for others, like transsexual people, is only more likely to be progressive and forward thinking.
Yes, Joe Biden's marrying of a gay couple is a strong progressive sign. A vice president making such a powerful public statement condoning homosexuality and equal rights would have been unthinkable just 10 years ago. Socially conservative forces in government may complain, but with the public in favor of such development there is no indication the current path will be abandoned anytime soon.
Joe Biden didn't care about the people that he married at the White House. Rather, he only wanted to do something that was politically trendy. Even Hilary Clinton was against same-sex marriage back when Bill Clinton was president. Biden only flip flopped the democrats on the issue because he thinks it is politically expedient. He will go whichever way the political winds blow.
