WASHINGTON (Reuters) – US President Joe Biden continues to support same-sex unions, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Monday after the Vatican said priests cannot bless same-sex unions.
Psaki said Biden, a devout Catholic, received no personal response to the Vatican’s statement but did not change his own longstanding view of supporting same-sex unions.
“He continues to believe and support same-sex unions, as you know, and he has held that position for a long time,” Psaki told reporters at a regular meeting at the White House.
