    George H.W. Bush serves as witness at same-sex wedding

    George H.W. Bush serves as witness at same-sex wedding - U.S. News

    Wasn't someone wondering if it was OK for a Supreme Court Justice to do a gay wedding? I seem to remember that being something of an issue when Ruth Bader Ginsburg did so.

    Anyway, what about an ex-President

    Why wouldn't either be ok?

    "to do a gay wedding" = officiating a wedding.

    GHWB attended a wedding, and signed the paper as a witness.

    While the subject matter is the same, that's two very different things. Also, what capacity does GHWB have currently that can affect the legality of laws? I imagine that would be why some were complaining about RBG's participation.

    I suspect if RBG opened a medical marijuana dispensery, there probably would be issues with that too.

    He did sign as a witness. Other than that, you have a point, but he is legally tied to it. He doesn't look too good in the pictures...

    Why? Who cares? Other than snarky little libs that want to use it for propaganda that is.

    I don't see anything wrong with it, but then I don't see anything wrong with a judge LEGALLY marrying two same sex people either.

    So, he was a witness at a wedding of two longtime friends. Good for him.

    That matters to anyone outside of the wedding party, how again?

    Of course we're supposed to care that someone Obama knew in High School committed a crime...
