Mary Cheney: My Sister ‘Is Dead Wrong’ on Gay Marriage
Mediaite ^ | August 31st, 2013 | Evan McMurry

Posted on 08/31/2013 2:00:54 PM PDT by Mozilla

Mary Cheney, daughter of Dick Cheney and sister to Wyoming senatorial candidate Liz Cheney, severely denounced her sister’s statement on gay marriage, posting on her Facebook page that marriage was “not something to be decided by a show of hands.”

“For the record, I love my sister, but she is dead wrong on the issue of marriage,” Cheney wrote. “Freedom means freedom for everyone. That means that all families—regardless of how they look or how they are made—all families are entitled to the same rights, privileges and protections as every other.”

Mary Cheney encouraged her Facebook friends to share the message if they agreed.

Sweetie, you are free to do what you want with who you want but don’t try to force those of us who believe God to go along with it and bless it and sanction it. As for me, it ain’t gonna ever happen.

So what if the husband is 36, and the wife is 11? Or some lady wants to marry her dog and adopt some puppies?

Well said. Of course I wouldn’t say it so nicely: if you’re a fag, good for you, even though it makes me wanna puke. But if you come to the house of my God and get hitched in defiance of my religion, I hope both you putrid souls burn in hell.

Hard to believe they’re both the same genetic material - BUT, my sister lives ‘an alternative lifestyle’ and we have the same two parents, as well.

I’m with Liz on this point...and probably against Mary on any of her points. :)

Language disagrees with Mary Cheney. Two women cannot be husband and wife. Two men cannot be husband and wife. That’s reality...that’s language...a show of hands, or not.

Well, sure would not want to be accused of being judgmental, Christ set the standard in telling any and all who would heed, Remember Lot’s wife. Nothing is recorded that she participated in perversion.

Mary Cheney, you are encroaching upon religious sensibilities, religious traditions and religious freedom.

You are encroaching upon marriage which is a religious institution.

You are free to form a civil union and to have all rights as accorded to spouses in marriage. But you are not free to encroach on traditions and values held for thousands of years.

Otherwise you are picking a fight.

And you’ll get one.

The result will not be pleasant for you and your homosexual encroaching group.

You’re absolutely right. Language describes the male spouse as the husband and the female spouse as the wife.

Homosexuality is the most dangerous of all the modern movements. It spits in the face of God and God’s creation. I wish the “moderates” would get that through their heads.

Mary Cheney is entitled to her opinion, as is her sister, Liz but the fact remains that marriage is not a constitutional ‘right’. God ordained marriage and He made it perfectly clear that it was between a man and a woman. Two women or two men living together and engaging in homosexual behavior is not a ‘marriage’, no matter what any legislature many decree. This is the simple fact that underlies opposition to ‘gay marriage’. It’s a mockery of actual marriage and simply a ploy that homosexual activists are using to ‘normalize’ their aberrant sexual proclivities. Sadly, its working.

Not being a FB user, I wonder if this is real. I have not read a reliable statement of Liz Cheney’s position before this. Color me surprized if she really is against homosexual marriage given her father’s declared support.

Those who choose homosexual relationships are too afraid or too selfish to truly give themselves to another with all the potential consequences of natural love.

So when two same sex roommates finally leave grad school, one employed and the other not so fortunate, what is to prevent the unemployed roommate from seeking alimony from the employed roommate as a divorce after his/her sharing an apartment is claimed to be a common-law marriage?

More criminally, when sex is legitimate only in the institution of marriage, what is being done for the other victims in society, nation, family, and marriages which God had prepared in eternity past?

As far as I’m concerned this is nothing but cynical, deceptive political theater designed only to distance Liz Cheney from her family’s support for the homosexual agenda.

Anyone who falls for it is, well, naive, to be kind about it.

I’m just theologically ranting...:^)

The more I’ve looked at how the American common man tends to think today, compared with 30-40 years ago, it strikes me that essentially we have first come to accept fornication and adultery as being naturally acceptable behavior.

Those who find that behavior as the status quo, then read into the minds of homosexuals as having the same impulsive heterosexual behavior they have as fornicators and adulterers, except with a nuance of preferring other sexual enticement.

Unfortunately, it isn’t the same thinking, but it is much more criminal and evil, causing many more victims and destroying future familial relationships.

Agree. Since it's political suicide for a candidate running in Wyoming to endorse gay marriage, she's now "strongly pro-life" and "against gay marriage", the same way Hollywood liberal George cLooney's dad was SUDDENLY "strongly pro-life" and "against gay marriage" when he decided to run against Geoff Davis in a solidly conservative Kentucky House district. Voters are supposed to forget about the fact that they were both applauding the left on gay marriage just a few months earlier.

Liz Cheney's stated position doesn't differ much from Obama's anyway, both of them say it's up to the "people of each state" to set the standards of marriage.

And in reality, both Cheney sisters are wrong. Marriage is marriage and it does not change. It's physically impossible for two people of the same gender to form a "marriage", regardless of whether a federal judge OR the voters of a state say they can.

For the record, I love my sister, but she is dead wrong on the issue of marriage,” Cheney wrote. “Freedom means freedom for everyone. That means that all families—regardless of how they look or how they are made—all families are entitled to the same rights, privileges and protections as every other.”

I just woke up and maybe that's why but it is unclear to me as to which Cheney wrote that. It sounds like the queer one to me.

Saying “leave it up to the states” is an all-too-easy out. Judges will NOT leave it up to the states. Conservative states will lose out. In a state-versus-state battle over gay marriage,liberal judges — and the Obama Administration — will side with liberal state.

The US Supreme Court just ruled against the state of California on gay marriage in a travesty of a decision.

Hah- you got that right!

That reminded me of a women’s health conference I attended in Gainesville, FL, back in the early 1970s as part of my new job in socialist health planning (didn’t realize that’s what I was doing because this was Nixon after all who signed it into law). I was a new Mom, too (with a husband who was the father of the baby).

Unbeknownst to me, this conference turned out to be organized & promoted by the indigenous lesbians of the U. of Florida. Rita Mae Brown was the keynote speaker, whom I had never heard of, so had no idea what was about to happen when she started strutting about the stage in an obvious attempt to seduce the women in the audience. Talk about gender bender shock! Didn’t know what hit me - this was another recruitment tool of the Leftie Lessies.

The women I talked to were lesbians by choice, no use for men at all. I asked about babies, and one woman was very excited to tell me about this company in France that was shipping rabbits to America implanted with human embryos. I didn’t believe that was possible, but she was convinced this was going to be a real option for her & her partner. Science in Action, tet68!

It’s not surprising to see the soft sell & hard intimidation work so well over the ensuing decades since that conference - the Academia, the Media, the corporations, and govt. bureaucracies have been thoroughly infiltrated. Poster child Ellen Degeneres (who really does look like a little pre-teen boy) puts on a good show for you to believe she’s just like you, but trust me, she ain’t.

I firmly believe that God knows what he is doing in condemning this behavior. It truly is injurious to mental, physical and spiritual health. Plus, it’s just not right for the children who are actively or passively subjected to it, and don’t we care about the children???

Basically, one immoral sexual relationship recognizing another. Yep, I’m sure that’s going on. And, since new homosexuals are coerced, not born, that is evil since it injures, and in many cases injures all the way to death.
