Biden says marriage equality ‘inevitable’, says country is evolving

Vice President Joe Biden says the country is evolving on the issue of marriage equality and he thinks it’s inevitable there will be national consensus.

He said on ABC’s “Good Morning America” Friday the same thing is happening with the issue of marriage that happened with gays’ service in the military. Changes in attitudes by military leaders, those in the service and the public allowed the repeal by Congress of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy that will eventually allow gays to serve openly in the military.

In the past, Biden supported state level decisions on the definition of partnership rights: civil unions, full marriage or otherwise.
