Ah, yes, the true believers. The bible-beaters endlessly courted by the GOP (and necessary for them to win these days) are just foaming at the mouth over the birth of little Samuel Cheney to Mary and her partner Heather Poe.
Alleged former homosexual Stephen Bennett, spokesperson for the untethered folks at Concerned Women for America, has gone over the edge in a press release on the matter, “White House Officially Recognizes Homosexual Unions and Parenting?”. The hysteria leaps off of the web page; please brace yourself as you click to read this drivel below the fold. Hat tip to John @ Americablog for this horror from Bennett:
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. [This is insane, but he’s only saying what we know these folks have been thinking for a long time. And yet the GOP still continues to court these people.]
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.
