Vice President Cheney Featured in Gay Marriage Ad
In an ad for the Human Rights Campaign that asks, "What if it were your child, Mr. President?", Vice President Dick Cheney, whose daughter is gay, appears, showing his disagreement with President Bush's initiative to create a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage saying it should be a state issue.
At a recent campaign rally in Davenport, Iowa, Cheney said, "Lynne and I have a gay daughter, so it's an issue our family is very familiar with. With respect to the question of relationships, my general view is freedom means freedom for everyone ... People ought to be free to enter into any kind of relationship they want to. The question that comes up with the issue of marriage is what kind of official sanction or approval is going to be granted by government? Historically, that's been a relationship that has been handled by the states. The states have made that fundamental decision of what constitutes a marriage."
Bet Bush gives Cheney a dirty look the next time he sees him.
