Mary Cheney has been making the rounds on the MSM lately. I caught a little bit of an interview, she said homosexual marriage will be recognized in America within ten years, just like Europe.

She's right; the country has been moving toward socialism for 20 years or more. Sadly.

Your gayness is a shame on your fine parents.....and they tolerate you because they love you, but I am pretty sure they are shamed by your actions.

The brutal harassment of Mary Cheney in the '94 campaign didn't come from the conservative side, as the article would have you believe, but from the gay establishment, re: their "Dear Mary" campaign.

You're right. The conservative movement didn't shame Mary and correctly so. With the exception of Alan Keyes, that is.

Most of the attacks came from the left and specifically, in the form of the biggest faux compliment I've ever seen -- from Edwards and Kerry.

You know, Suzy - that's an ugly thing to say. I don't think the Cheney family feels that Mary has shamed them in any way

She's probably right and homosexual marriage will be legal in America eventually. I wonder what the ramifications will be? We already have well over 2 million homes with children who will never know their father according to a report on saw on CNN.

I adore Vice President Cheney, and I feel strongly he has handled the situation with his daughter as a loving parent would.

HOWEVER, that said, even though I wish no ill will toward Mary Cheney, in fact I wish her well, I still support the sanctity of marriage. And do not support any form of homosexual marriage. They can go and lives their lives any way they choose, make all the legal arrangements they want, so long as they leave marriage, the Church, and schools and children, out of it!

That will never change in my view.

There's plenty to be ashamed of, but that doesn't mean that a parent's love doesn't trump that.

If if I ever had a kid who killed someone, I don't think I could bring myself to be ashamed of him, though I'd grieve his poor decision-making.

Now that you mention it, I wonder if a dictator's parents could ever feel shame for his actions? Say a Saddam Hussein or a Paul Pot.

I wouldn't be surprised. We're doing a very poor job of educating our kids on the matter. The younger generation supports it, thanks in part to our schools, our media, and our unwillingness to speak to our kids about the matter.

You do realize that that option is not on the table as far as the Gaystapo is concerned. They won't stop pushing for "normalization" until re-education camps are full of us.

This is just pop psychology and anecdotal evidence from me but I have known and still know quite a few homosexual individuals. I can honestly say that their lives look to be very difficult and sad to me. There is a lot of pain there and I think that our young people in junior high and high school don't realize this.

Comparing someone who is gay to a killer, much less a mass killer, even if loosely, puts you way, way out there on the continuum.

Steve and Mildred Pot were deeply ashamed of their son Paul, who had shown such great promise as a youth and ended up selling timeshares in Bermuda. On the other hand, their son Pol was a trouble maker from day one.

Yes I do realize they won't stop. Which is my biggest motivation for saying we must stop them.

Zero tolerance for bullying isn't enough for them, they want special clauses that mimic hate crimes laws.

To me, bullying is bullying, period. And a crime is a crime, period. Victims or their families are no more and no less entitled to justice, just because that victim happens to practice homosexual sex.

and her father indicated publicly he disagreed with his boss on the issue

First I've heard that VP Cheney disagrees with Pres. Bush on the issue of sanctity of marriage .

I guess it's not so surprising as his daughter is gay. I love Dick Cheney, but I agree with Pres. Bush and am glad he is so strong on the sanctity of marriage.

"Comparing someone who is gay to a killer, much less a mass killer, even if loosely, puts you way, way out there on the continuum."

No, it does the exact opposite. I think most would agree that having a killer for a child is something more extreme than having a child who adopts a gay lifestyle. I said that I don't think that I could ever even feel shame over a child who went so far as to kill someone. If I felt that way about a murdering child, how would that put me in respect to a "lesser offense," such as having a gay child?

In what way does that put me out there in the continuum?

Unless you're saying that you'd feel ashamed to have a child who killed someone, then I'm not sure where you're coming from on this one.

True, however, fair comparisons have been made.

I wouldn't support adultery, polygamy, prostitution, or any other sexual practice that deviates from the norm, being celebrated, lauded as wonderful, having parades declaring their pride in their chosen deviance, or any other form of sanctioning of such behavior.

I don't hate people who do those things, but I don't celebrate them either. And adultery isn't illegal, it still doesn't merit celebration and pride.

These things are all more of the "not responsible for my behavior" tactics. And can do the country no good, but a lot of harm.

OK. But the one to me is like going 50 mph in a 45 mph zone, vis a vis getting your kicks torturing and then killing pre school children. In fact, I don't think parents of gay children have anything to be ashamed of at all, zero, zip, nada, and I suspect most would agree with me on that.

This is why I don't like somew homosexuals. I only care about about the size and scope of the government, and taxes, while they only care about being able to have sex with the same sex, being able to marry them, and destroying the moral structure of our country. It's like gayness is a weird mental disease which turns you into a gay drone. I mean, has anyone noticed that black, white, yellow, etc. and they are homosexual, they all act the same!

Now...I REALLY would have passed milk through my nose on that, if I had any in my mouth!

But...OTOH, what that man was, and what he did is beyond my comprehension. I had to catch myself and say "That was Pol Pot he was poking fun at..." No, I cannot laugh at that.

Well, maybe, just a little...

Great. Now I feel guilty. Look what you have done.

Actually it is way out there on the continuum to conflate and attempt to compare what someone "is" versus to someone "does".

There are no "gay" people, there are people (always heterosexual) who feel predisposed cause unknown to engage in homosexual activity and or people (always heterosexual) who actually choose to engage in homosexual activity.

I always found it despicable when politicians and pundits dug up dirt on a candidates family and then proceeds to run them through the mud. Granted our side has done it from time to time but the democrats in particular are the cruelest of them all. The way they tor Nancy Reagan apart and the accusations that Ron Jr. was gay while Reagan was president. And then they turn around and have the gall to be "shocked" in how we treated the Clinton's in which IMO was not even close to the way they treated Reagan.

I love how the left smeared Nancy Reagan for over a Decade and then to use her loss pain and grief over Ronnie to exploit there agenda.

Be careful not to allow the opposition to define the terms. "Bullying" can mean just about anything to the Gaystapo - they will dumb down the definitions until simply carrying a Bible in your book bag will be considered harassment. I am not exaggerating - not in this day. Don't allow any debate where the terms are disingenuously warped to support an agenda.

Mary Cheney Considered Quitting 2004 Campaign Over Gay Marriage Issue

Who Cares... LOL -the homosexual activists that keep floating Mary Cheney related stories have about tapped the well dry... Time to move on!

-maybe [they] can talk the peace activist mom, Cindy Sheehan, into declaring herself a lesbian for peace? LOL -that would get a few more substantially meaningless headlines...

I believe a Massachusetts teacher justified a homosexually-oriented elementary school curriculum solely on the basis that marriage between people of the same sex was legal in Massachusetts now.

:) The old PC usage of words long established meanings.

Hate for instance, is the most overused, misused, abused, and most taken out of context, words in the English language.

The Cheney's love their daugther; they don't merely "tolerate" her. And I highly doubt they're ashamed of her.

But your projections are duly noted.

It was implimented by the former Republican governor, Paul Celucci, I think it got discontinued because it was disturbing.
