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.
Should Dick Cheney strangle the kid when none are looking? What would happen if they refused to see the child?
There is a good chance that the “father” will split before too long, it happens lot in these types of partnerships.
The child deserves love and forgiveness and will need more support from the grandparents than one raised in a healthily normal family. It looks like Cheney and his wife will make a good set of grand parents.
The paernts are the mother and whoever donated the sperm.
What would you have him do, specifically?
Agreed. Weak argument.
I have no qualms with the Cheneys welcoming this little angel into their family. My only question is, have they issued official pictures when their other 5 grandchildren were born?
Congratulations to Dick and Lynne Cheney on the grandbaby. He is theirs; they love him.
What are they supposed to do?
I agree. Dick Cheney will be a loving grandfaher and will continue to be a loving father. Disowning one’s children because they are gay is not an act of love. Being a good father, and in this case a grandfather, too, in spite of his daughter’s ‘preference’ is a very big act of fatherly love. I mean, come on, this baby has Dick Cheney as a grandfather!
THank you for asking that question.
I will enjoy crickets chirping as I wait for some of these poster to reply.
Bush is morphing into more of a democrat before our eyes. What’s the surprise?
Reading this as sometype of endorsement is ridiculous.
This forum certainly has people who feel strongly about issues, but trying to read something like this into a family photo shows a Kerry-like spin on Lynn.
I would say they are definitely reading into it AND quite a dishonest title if you ask me. That is a stretch at best. I was expecting to read something about how George Bush added something on the website praising gay marriage or something. This is just a total distortion of the truth. Man I think this website and whoever the author is wanted George Bush to spit on Vice President Cheney or something. I am not for all this nonsense either, but to lie and distort is not right.
Let no one suggest he is the second coming.
No, you have The Parents Group who wrote this article to thank for this. Christian News Wire neither writes nor edits the articles on it site. It is merely a site where Christian groups can present their own press releases.
If Seinfeld has to say “not that there’s anything wrong with that” in an episode discussing homosexuality, how about if our representatives, like Bush, are required to say, “not that we recommend children being raised in same-sex arrangements”?
What’s good for the goose...
Of course this won’t happen, because it’s not PC. But it is PC that is killing us as a nation and helping to split the traditional family apart, which is the bedrock of our nation.
No, we’ll all just smile and say automatically, like Pavlov’s dogs whenever we mention what doesn’t look right and what history has proved to be harmful to people and nations, “not that there’s anything wrong with that.”
