Skip to comments.White House Officially Recognizes Homosexual Unions and Parenting?
Posted on 05/30/2007 10:04:56 AM PDT by Between the Lines
On May 23, 2007, the White House, silently and without any fanfare, released an official White House photo of Vice President Dick Cheney and his wife, Lynne Cheney, welcoming their sixth grandchild, Samuel David Cheney, into the Cheney fold.
The beautiful little tyke weighed in at 8 lbs., 6 oz. and was born at 9:46 a.m. at Sibley House in Washington, D.C.
What is extremely troubling is the official White House caption that appears underneath the photo on the official White House website:
... His parents are the Cheney's daughter Mary, and her partner, Heather Poe. White House photo by David Bohrer.
Since when have two homosexual women been able to naturally procreate?
Fact is Mary Cheney, the Vice President's daughter - in one way or another - received a male's sperm. She is the biological mother, parent number one, and some man, somewhere out there, is Samuel David's real biological father, parent number two.
Unlike the official White House photo caption, a man and a woman, a Daddy and a Mommy, are Samuel David Cheney's REAL biological parents.
Then who is Heather Poe?
Heather Poe is Mary Cheney's live-in lesbian lover. She may act like a parent, she may treat the baby as a parent, she may love this baby with all of her heart, but in this reality we all live in, Heather Poe is NOT the baby's real parent. She has NO biological connection to the child whatsoever. Some man, the baby's real Daddy, is the child's other REAL parent.
If the Vice President and his wife Lynne are joining their daughter Mary in playing this homosexual game of "house," then all have chosen their roles and designated lesbian lover Heather Poe as the "Daddy."
Everyone knows there can only be one REAL biological Mommy. We are all grown adults. Playing "house" is a game for children, not for The White House or the Vice President and his wife.
What is so hypocritical of this Administration is its "double-speak."
President George W. Bush held several presses conferences calling for a Federal Marriage Amendment to protect the God-ordained institution of marriage between one man and one woman, while homosexuals pushed for the union of two men or two women to be equally recognized as real "marriage."
However, the President's number two, right hand man, Vice President Dick Cheney, clearly rebels against his superior, makes a public mockery of the President and the current Administration he is supposed to represent, and clearly holds to a different set of moral standards and beliefs.
When President Bush stood on the victory stage several years ago after being elected into office by values voters, Mary Cheney was on stage as well with her lesbian lover, Heather Poe. It was a slap in the face to the values voters who had just elected the duo into office. That wound has never healed.
While this little innocent child Samuel David Cheney deserves every fighting chance at life, the sins of two women, Mary Cheney and Heather Poe, have deliberately denied the Vice President's grandson one of the most basic human rights of all: the right to a Daddy and a Mommy.
I say shame on the White House, shame on the President and shame on the Vice President for allowing such a caption to be "officially" added onto the White House website and such a beautiful photo of two happy grandparents and their new grandchild.
I guess we can tragically and officially say both the White House and Bush Administration have officially recognized the sinful sexual unions of homosexuals, as well as recognized and embraced the tragedy of the social experiment of homosexual parenting.
Why not? They recognize illegal border invaders...
I think they are officially recognizing little Samuel David. Period.
These aren’t good arguments at all. Is adoption also “playing house” because the parents are not biological? Doesn’t make sense.
I’m with you.
So he has no father?
This thread is being hijacked. Remain in your seats. We are returning to the airport.
I think you are correct. I think Dick Cheney handles this situation in exemplary fashion.
You can still love someone even when you don’t agree with them. The Cheney’s obviously love their daughter, and will love their grandson.
I think the Bush White House has lost all sense of direction.
Yes, it is.
I’ve seen nothing to indicate the Cheneys disagree with their daughter on her lifestyle.
What is so hypocritical of this Administration is its “double-speak.”
true, but other issues this WH and administration double-speak about are downright dangerous and subversive to our country and our way of life.
LOL! Good one!
This shouldn’t be turned into a political statement.
I was thinking the same thing. My wife and I have two adopted sons and I'm sure they consider us their "real parents."
You could turn this argument around and argue that a biological father who deserts the mother before the child is born is a "real parent." That wouldn't make any sense at all.
That being said, the caption under the picture of Cheney's grandchild could have said "Cheney celebrates, along with his daughter's partner, the birth of Mary's child..."
I think they are reading into it to much as well. They act as though Cheney should have nothing to do with his daughter or grandson... not exactly Christian-like (before anybody points it out, yes, I know, Cheney has made it clear he has no problem with homosexuals marrying - I’m not arguing that one o way or the other, just that Cheney and his wife have acted appropriately in regards to their daughter/grandson).
No wonder I'm confused. I was raised in a foster home by two people who later adopted me when I was around three and half years old. For as long as I can remember, I have referred to these two people as "mom," "dad," and "my parents." Thanks to the Christian News Wire, I now realize that my real parents are not the people who fed me, housed me, clothed me, and cared for me when I was sick -- because I do not have a biological connection to them -- but rather, my real parents are two strangers who I know nothing about other than they were so dysfunctional that social services removed me from them and placed me in foster care and eventually initiated proceeding to terminate their parental rights, which they did not bother to oppose.
