Cheney is Preggers

From the Post:

Mary Cheney, the vice president's openly gay daughter, is pregnant. She and her partner of 15 years, Heather Poe, are "ecstatic" about the baby, due in late spring, said a source close to the couple.

It's a baby boom for grandparents Dick and Lynne Cheney: Their older daughter, Elizabeth, went on leave as deputy assistant secretary of state before having her fifth child in July. "The vice president and Mrs. Cheney are looking forward with eager anticipation to the arrival of their sixth grandchild," spokesman Lea Anne McBride said last night.

For some time now, most major religions have been preaching that the highest form of love can only be attained in marriage, that sex and child birth outside of marriage debases your soul and the social institutions of marriage and child rearing for everyone, and generate more abortions, higher poverty, and endless mind rotting celebrity gossip news.

So the anti-homosexual agenda of those religions have never made much sense to me. If marriage is good and sex and child birth outside of marriage is bad, then why would you purposefully bar some sizable minority of people from ever getting married? Wouldn't it make more sense to encourage everyone to try and form truly loving and lasting relationships with the end goal being a healthy marriage?

And Dick Cheney, a leader of the party that wants a constitutional ban on gay marriage and constantly belittles single moms and cuts funding for child care is "looking forward with eager anticipation to the arrival of their sixth grandchild."

Hypocrisy... overload... brain... exploding from internal contradictions...

It reminds me of an old saying that an activist friend once told me, "Most people in America are pro-life, unless the mother who needs an abortion is raped, her health is at risk, or if its someone they know."
