Mary Cheney knew her child with lesbian lover Heather Poe would cause a stink. Anticipating the conservatives outrage, Vice-President Dick Cheney‘s daughter released a preemptive statement:
When Heather and I decided to have a baby, I knew it wasn’t going to be the most popular decision. This is a baby. This is a blessing from God. It is not a political statement. It is not a prop to be used in a debate, on either side of a political issue. It is my child.
While some people celebrated Samuel David Cheney‘s birth on Wednesday, not everyone jumped for joy. Take, for example, Peter LaBarbera, the homophobic leader of anti-gay group, Americans for Truth…
The former Washington Times reporter released a statement not only damning poor Sammy Dave Cheney, but questioning whether Heather Poe can even be called the baby’s mama:
There should be no touch of sadness when a healthy baby boy is born into a home with two parents, but in this case, we’re afraid, there is.
While we celebrate new life, we cannot celebrate homosexual parenting –– which involves intentionally denying a child either a mom or a dad. In this case, young Samuel David –– who, as a Cheney, will surely enjoy privileges and comforts greater than most children born in 2007 –– will be missing an irreplaceable one: a father, to have as a loving guide, male authority, friend and role model as he grows from boy into man.
The pro-”gay” media have an odd way of reporting stories like this, as if both Mary Cheney and Heather Poe were involved in the baby’s conception. To do otherwise, I suppose, would call unwanted attention to the unnaturalness of the enterprise known as “gay parenting.” And yet, the truth remains: two homosexuals cannot create a baby. Heterosexuality – i.e., the people derided in the early days of “gay liberation” as ”breeders” – must be involved.
LaBarbera goes on to say that he and his pious peers are praying for young Samuel’s soul. He’s also praying that Mary Cheney will realize what a sinful abomination she’s become. Something tells us he won’t be invited to the next Cheney family picnic.
