(AP) Vice President Joe Biden is praising Jewish leaders for helping change American attitudes about gay marriage and other issues.


Biden says culture and arts change people's attitudes. He cites social media and the old NBC TV series "Will and Grace" as examples of what helped changed attitudes on gay marriage.


Biden says, quote, "Think behind of all that, I bet you 85 percent of those changes, whether it's in Hollywood or social media, are a consequence of Jewish leaders in the industry."


Biden says the influence is immense and that those changes have been for the good.


Biden was speaking Tuesday night at a Jewish American Heritage Month reception hosted by the Democratic National Committee. He says Jewish values are an essential part of who Americans are.
