Exclusive: Mary Cheney marries longtime partner Heather Poe
The Daily Caller ^ | 6/22/2012 | Alex Pappas

Posted on 06/22/2012 11:31:31 AM PDT by LonelyCon

Mary Cheney, the openly gay daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, has married her long-time partner Heather Poe, The Daily Caller has learned.

Cheney spokeswoman Kara Ahern confirmed to TheDC that the couple married Friday morning in Washington, D.C.

In a statement provided to TheDC, both the former vice president and his wife, Lynne, said they are “delighted” the couple could have their “relationship recognized.”

“Our daughter Mary and her long time partner, Heather Poe, were married today in Washington, DC,” the Cheneys said.

Poe and Mary Cheney have two children: Cheney gave birth to a son in 2007, and a daughter in 2009. They live together in Virginia.

“Mary and Heather have been in a committed relationship for many years, and we are delighted that they were able to take advantage of the opportunity to have that relationship recognized,” the Cheneys said. “Mary and Heather and their children are very important and much loved members of our family and we wish them every happiness.”

“We are all so happy for Heather and Mary and their beautiful kids,” friend and former Cheney adviser Mary Matalin told TheDC. “Happy and moved by the blessing of their commitment and strength.”

Gay marriage is an assault on the natural family. It should not be sanctioned by the government and is nothing but an attempt at destabilizing society and depopulation: marxist goals both.

"Certainly not. 'I love my daughter but don't endorse gay marriage' would do just fine."

They already have two kids. Cheney gave birth, per the article.

"They" don't have anything to do with having these children. Cheney had to obtain the MALE components of procreation to father the children. Her "partner" had absolutely nothing to do with it.

It's scary how many so called "conservatives" these days support sodomites and Gay Marriage. In my opinion it should be a banable offense on freerepublic considering it's in direct opposition to social and religious values our country was founded on. Let them take their gay loving garbage over to DU or Daily Kos where they belong.

Agreed. Mr. Robinson's opinion on homosexuality is quite clear.

I would treat it as any other sinful lifestyle. If one of my adult children came to me and said "I've taken up practicing witchcraft." I wouldn't disown them, but I would certainly let them know that didn't approve of their lifestyle, nor would I attend any ceremonies or allow it to be practiced under my roof. The same with homosexuality. I would be doing a disservice to tell them, "Oh, that's just fine! I'll support you no matter what!"

"Like I said, more compassion than most on this board. Grow up."

Spare me your compassionate conservative schtick.

That neo-con clap trap doesn't work on a real Conservative. So go play your tambourine and cowbell for all your tree-hugging gay friends and leave us decent folk alone.

I’m with you. I really shouldn’t even read these threads.
It’s upsetting. I believe there should be way for them to
legally connect thats not marriage. And i took my cue from
my gay friends who also feel that way.

The Cheneys are a terrific family and i wish them ALL every
happiness and continue to pray for Dick Cheneys health.

“Apparently their means of laundering a donation to Obama.”

It’s ALL about Obama, your wedding, your baby’s birth, your anniversary, your birthday, it’s all about Obama, send him all your presents, your cash,....because it is all about Obama. Obama is a narcissist, yes, but what do we call the enablers that support the narcissist and enable the narcissism?

See even this posting about Cheney turned into something about Obama.

I love Dick Cheney, and hate to say it, but I draw the line at kids. If she and her partner wanted to live alone it’s one thing. But the research shows now, it’s a bad deal for the kids, which will not get them any sympathy from me. (Dick is another story, God bless him).

If I carried a latent viral infection, which would make any dog I had mildly sick, I wouldn’t have any dogs, ever. I’d rather know that the dogs I would have had, were healthy and loved elswhere. Why people don’t feel this way with their own kids is beyond me.

Maybe it would be better for some on this thread to close their computers and pick up their Bible and read it!

Homosexuals don’t fare well with our GOD! I think he thinks it is an abomination.

As with any sin, this one included, one must repent(s and turn away from their sin(s) to be forgiven.

You know, it’s really none of my business what other people do. What a hard life to lead when you’re not comfortable in your own skin.

I’ve always wondered what I would do if it were one of my children. I just Thank God that they’re both hetro.

It’s more like something he has yet to recognize the problem. Dick Cheney’s a long time homo agenda promoter. I remember reading about it from when he was on the board of Procter and Gamble.

No, they do not.

Cheney conceived a child with the help of a sperm donor.

This "Heather Poe" creature was not involved in the process.

And they aren't married, either, regardless of whatever perverse activities they engage in, or whatever farcical ceremonies they may have performed, or whatever risible government paperwork they may have filed.

They are twisted, deluded, unfortunate souls who are seeking affirmation in their mental illness rather than getting the help they desperately need.

May God be merciful to them ... may He grant them the grace of repentance and conversion.

Pardon me! I had to step away from the computer to take my elderly mother to a dr appointment. Now trying to respond to all you haters on her phone while I wait. Yes I think God is compassionate, unlike many here who WANT people to burn at the stake. That’s compassion? Is that how you show it? And people wonder why so many are turned off by ‘religion’. One of the biggest reasons I don’t click on the religion threads...too many know it all’s.

As do I. I know a LOT of gay people. One of whom is one of my best friends. I would never deny her happiness. Most of my gay friends show more caring and compassion then a LOT of people on this board. Flame away, I don't give a rats ass. I also admire the Cheneys quite a bit.


Perhaps all your gay friends are the exceptions to the rule but I have never met a truly "happy" homosexual. They are consistently never able to maintain a real romantic relationship which is coupled by at least moderate mental issues. Professionally I run into two types of homosexuals, one is the constant domestic abuser, the second is the suicidal, on many occasions I've even ran into the older/younger stalker relationship paradigm. None of them have been had ever been "happy".
Neither personally nor professionally have I yet to run into a homosexual couple that was "normal" (in any way) with the normal man-woman- hetero couple problems.

I am confused by your posts.

Are you saying you support redefining marriage to include same-sex couples?

Do you think persons who do not support redefining marriage to include same-sex couples must then hate or even just dislike gay people?

Poe and Mary Cheney have two children: Cheney gave birth to a son in 2007, and a daughter in 2009. They live together in Virginia.

Correction, Mary Cheney has two children the other woman has none.

I have ran into aproximately ONE couple who could be considered gay, and one of them was intersexed from birth and they both didn’t drink the whole “Gay is a Lifestyle not a preference” Kool-aid. And were very much conservative and socially far less liberal than the other gay folks, they both never went to the “gay pride” events because they were disgusted by the public displays of affection and outright nudity/hedonism.

Finding a truly happy “gay” couple is like finding a minority of a minority of a minority. Like finding a Black Jewish Conservative.

I'm in the minority here but good for them. It's not my business and it is not my place to judge. I do not care if the state or in this case, District of Columbia certifies their marriage.

If they choose to get married in a Church, then okay that's a different story.

Go push your homosexual agenda somewhere else.

I am pleased to see that you used one of the correct words ("homosexual") to describe this relationship. I would have chosen "queer" myself.

"Gay" is the word they have chosen for themselves and in the process have forever ruined a perfectly good English word by its association with these sexual distortions in our society.
