While the White House on Monday would not respond to the Vatican's statement on marriage, press secretary Jen Psaki said that President Biden supports same-sex unions.
On Monday, the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) issued a response to a question on the Church's power to bless same-sex unions. The CDF said that the Church does not have the power to bless same-sex unions or any relations "that involve sexual activity outside of marriage."
When asked by a reporter on Monday if the president had a response to the Vatican's statement, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said he had no "personal response" but reaffirmed the president's long-standing support for same-sex unions.
"I don't think he has a personal response to the Vatican, no. He continues to believe and support same-sex unions, as you know. He's long had that position," Psaki said.
