VP Joe Biden performs his first wedding ceremony by marrying two men

Vice President Joe Biden has performed his first wedding ceremony, presiding over the “marriage” of two men, performing a service Monday afternoon at the vice president’s residence, located at the U.S. Naval Observatory. The process angered many traditional marriage advocates.

Biden reportedly obtained a license from the District of Columbia before officiating the service for Brian Mosteller, the director of Oval Office operations, and Joe Mahshie, a trip coordinator for Michelle Obama.

Joe Biden presides over gay marriage ceremony“The situation involving Vice President Biden and his marrying of two homosexuals gives further evidence of the decay that is occurring within the Catholic Church in America,” Judie Brown of the American Life League told LifeSiteNews.

“Had the bishops, years ago, enforced church law and made it clear to Mr. Biden, among others, that public defiance of church teaching would result in denial of the reception of Holy Eucharist until such time as the Catholic in question repents of his sins of defiance, we would not today be hearing of outrages such as that exhibited by Biden.”

Biden tweeted out a picture of the two men holding hands as he looked on approvingly and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, sent her own message equating homosexual and heterosexual relationships.

Biden announced his support for redefining marriage in May 2012. President Barack Obama officially changed his position on the issue, adding that the TV show Will and Grace had done “more to educate the American public” about homosexuality than anything else.
