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.
Yeah - because I'm sick and tired of the Taliban wing of the Republican party, trying to be the Morality Police.
Homosexual behaviors lead to social decay just as drugs, pedophilia, adultery and do forth.
Homosexuality, adultery, and drug use are not in the same class as pedophilia. "One of these is not like the others."
And S&M leather mommies and daddies will screw up kids just as surely. Your point being?
Any time the homosexual degenerates try to hurt impressionable children by immersing them in the homosexual lifestyle, people of faith take exception.
What about the "divorced lifestyle"? My Bible condemns divorce. It condemns alcoholism. It condemns moneygrubbing. It condemns a whole lot of things that aren't the government's business - even if it's "for the children."
Oh, please! Give the Bush bashing a rest! The White House is simply acknowledging that the Cheneys have a new grandchild. I’m sure the Cheneys are happy to have him, regardless of the lack of marital status of their daughter.
I’m just guessing that this is the first semi-American Administration where this crap has happened. Contemporary semi(or pseudo)-american culture is vile.
And I (and plenty of others) are sick and tired of the lemming like march off the cliff led the so-called moral relativists (and dragging the rest of us along with you). Your use of the word “Taliban wing” of the Republican party is very telling.
All we want is to get the government OUT of the business of promoting sexual deviance and indeed, forcing it down out throats via judicial activism and legislative kowtowing to the homosexual activists and their assistants.
A very few generations ago all the homosexual agenda didn’t exist, laws prohibiting sodomy, sexual deviance, and contributing to the deliquence of a minor were all on the books, and no one was compared to the Taliban.
This Taliban reference outs you as either a social liberal, liberal-tarian, or homosexual rights purveyor.
And, btw, there IS relevance in comparing homosexuality to pedophilia, as one third or more of all child molestation is same sex.
“Why is it any of your damned business what they do?”
Because they make it our damned business. If they kept it behind closed doors, no one would know or care. But since they don’t keep it to themselves, and have publicly stated that they are out to change the entire world to suit them, they have MADE it our business.
As if you didn’t know that. You’re either part of the problem, or very, very young.
I don’t think the White House recognizes homosexual unions and parenting. The policies of the Bush Administration have stood for marriage between one man and one woman. However, it’s a standard policy to release pictures of the new grandkids. That was all they were doing. I do feel sorry for the child because the child was purposefully deprived of a mother and father, and that is just not fair, imo. Plus, both these women are not his parents. A child has one mother and one father. In adoption, a new mother and father may take on the role of parenting, but that is a different situation than two women or two men. This child will also have a distorted view of morality. I am hoping Dick Cheney will be a father like figure to this little boy if his health holds up. Dick Cheney seems to support homosexual marriage, though, and it is most likely the child will grow up supporting it too.
My God have mercy on that lovely, poor little baby.
First off, you don’t know me.....I am neither Republican nor Democrat.
I am conservative and I support traditional values. If we had more morals Mr.jude24, our country would not be experiencing the horrific social downturn we are now witnessing.
All sorts of stuff that once was considered wrong, deviant, taboo are being taught in schools, blatantly parroted on evening television and radio every day.
No thanx, you can have the anything goes / if it feels good do it / I’m good-your good mentality.
I’d prefer a more traditional existence.
Oh and by the way Jude24, I find it quite ironic your screen name considering your defense of Lesbian lovers raising children. Ever read the book of Jude?
Back up to JUDE 1: verse 4 and read on to JUDE 1 verse 24.
This tiny lil book is one of the least known in the bible, yet describes the deviant lifestyles your attempting to defend......good luck to ya.
Argue with the creator, these are HIS words not mine. It is HE whom you are at odds.
Never said that. What I said is that there are a lot of things Christians consider immoral that are none of the government's business.
Don't quote proof-texts to me - you will look in vain in the entire New Testament for anything remotely suggesting that the government is intended to be the enforcer of public morality. Just because I do not buy into your Focus on the Family propaganda doesn't mean I don't take Christianity and Christian morality seriously - but those are questions for internal catechesis, not external kulturkampfs.
Why yes the bible does. They are indeed just as bad in God’s eyes.
Are you attempting to justify wrong behavior with wrong behavior?
Let me further quantify, we are all guilty. No one is without some sort of skeleton.
With that said, do we continue a downward slide into a society that allows anything? Not no, but heck no.
We learn from our mistakes and attempt to live better lives.
Adultery is wrong, abortion is wrong, homosexuality is wrong, drunkenness is wrong.
Am I the morality police for pointing out what is harmful to the family, harmful to society and what has been described for thousands of years as wrong?
Your all over the place. Who is talking about the government?
It appears as if you feel I’m judging you or someone you love. I am not.
I am just exhausted with the anything goes slide America finds herself.
I don’t want homosexuality taught as an accepted lifestyle to my child by the liberal education establishment nor the liberal MSM.
Again, I didn’t make these things up. You attack me as if I’m the one who wrote the bible.....argue with God.
No. Your problem is when you start demanding the government do something about it.
I want the government to stay out of as much as possible.
With that said, would you like to see gay marriage legal?
How about polygamy? What’cha think about legalization of abortion or drugs?
If the answer to any of those is Yes...then you and I are worlds apart.
There's a sensible suggestion.
By the way, the bible does in fact command us to obey our government and the law of the land as long as it does not circumvent God’s law.
The bible is clear on the governments role in protecting society against moral decay..........and not just remotely as you are suggesting.
