Former Vice President Joe Biden officiated over his second same-sex ceremony on Saturday, this time between the finance chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and his partner.
Biden presided over the ceremony for Henry Muñoz III and Kyle Ferrari on Saturday, and a photograph of the occasion was posted online by Melanie Griffith.
“My dearest friends Henry Munoz and Kyle Ferrari were married today by VP Joe Biden. Wishing them everlasting love and a joyous life journey!” the actress, whose daughter Dakota Johnson stars in the controversial “50 Shades of Grey” film, wrote.
As previously reported, last August, Biden officiated another ceremony between two White House staffers at his Washington home. Brian Mosteller worked as director of Oval Office operations for Barack Obama, and Joe Mahsie served as a travel coordinator for Michelle Obama.
“Proud to marry Brian and Joe at my house. Couldn’t be happier, two longtime White House staffers, two great guys,” Biden wrote.
His wife, Jill, also Tweeted the photo after the ceremony, writing, “Love is love.”
Biden first publicly announced his support for same-sex “marriage” in 2012, just days before Barack Obama did likewise.
“I am absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, women marrying women, and heterosexual men and women marrying one another are entitled to the same exact rights, all the civil rights, all the civil liberties,” he said.
But CNN reported at that time that “Biden has, in the past, counseled the president against coming out for same-sex marriage.”
Biden, a Roman Catholic, attended numerous homosexual pride events at the White House throughout his tenure and once stated that he believes transgenderism is “the civil rights issue of our time.”
The Huffington Post reports that in March, Biden made statements critical of the Trump administration after the U.S. Department of Justice dropped a lawsuit filed by the previous attorney general that challenged North Carolina’s bathroom bill. The law at issue required those visiting government facilities to use the restroom that correlates with their birth sex.
“Instead of focusing on the fact that 40 percent of the homeless youth on the street are identified as lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender [and] rejected by their families out on the street, and what do we do about that, we’re now focusing on whether or not a transgender child, which bathroom they can use,” Biden is reported as stating.
Jesus said in Mark 10:6-8, “But from the beginning of the Creation, God made them male and female. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife, and they twain shall be one flesh.”
1 Corinthians 11:9 also outlines that God made “woman for man,” and Proverbs 18:22 declares, “He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord.”
