White House says US President Joe Biden will continue to support same-sex unions

(Reuters) – US President Joe Biden continues to support same-sex unions, White House Press Secretary, Jen Psaki, said on Monday, after the Vatican said priests cannot bless same-sex unions.

Psaki said Biden, a devout Catholic, had no personal response to the Vatican statement, but had not changed his own longstanding view, backing same-sex unions.

“He continues to believe, and support same-sex unions, as you know, and he’s long had that position,” Psaki told reporters at a regular White House briefing.
