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.
