Mary, Liz Cheney in Internet Spat over Gay Marriage

A spat between the two Cheney daughters has gone public over Facebook.   Mary Cheney, who is married to a woman, was at home watching Fox News Sunday when her sister Liz appeared on the show.  On the show, Liz said that she is opposed to same-sex marriage and it’s just an area where she and Mary “disagree.”  Heather Poe, Mary's partner snapped back with a Facebook posting saying she was very disappointed.  Then Mary shared that post and added, "Liz – this isn’t just an issue on which we disagree you’re just wrong – and on the wrong side of history.”

“It’s kind of a jerk move by Mary Cheney,” exclaimed Morning Answer co-host Ben Shapiro.  “Like there are a lot of people who hold that perspective and to go after your own sister… It’s not like Liz has been intolerant and nasty to Mary Cheney.”

“I hate it when people use that ‘wrong side of history’ argument,” said Morning Answer co-host Elisha Krauss.  “The reason why people have fundamentally an issue with homosexual marriage isn’t because they want to be on the wrong side of history.  It’s because usually of a religious belief.”

    Liz Cheney, who opposes "gay marriage" is right. Her sister, Mary, who supports "gay marriage," is wrong.

    Even though gay people must be acknowledged and respected, same-sex behavior should not be encouraged. Rather, both society and government should remain neutral on same-sex behavior. They should allow it to occur between consenting adults but not encourage it with "gay marriage," or other forms of government recognition or encouragement, such as "domestic partnerships" or "civil unions."

    The reason is because homosexuality bears nothing in common with race or gender. Rather, homosexuality is a behavioral urge. Further, even though many claim to have never chosen the urge, they can choose to act on the urge or not, making same-sex behavior no different than any other behavioral urge or behavior.

    As such, homosexuality/same-sex behavior, needs to be treated the same as any other behavior; whether we encourage the behavior or not needs to be based on facts, indicating if the behavior should be legally encouraged, limited, or prohibited.

    The facts are irrefutable. Same-sex behavior should be limited to consenting adults without any form of government recognition or encouragement. The reason is because same-sex behavior is very unhealthy, especially among male homosexuals, since this group comprises only 2% of the population but experiences over 50% of all HIV/AIDS in the country, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). For females, it's higher incidences of breast and ovarian cancer, bacterial vaginitis, and equal to higher incidences (in comparison to single straight females, not married straight ones) of human papilloma viruses. In addition, "gay marriage" is far more likely to end in divorce; both sexes (primarily male homosexuals) remain non-monogamous, which defeats the whole purpose of marriage in the first place, and experience greater rates of psychological maladies than heterosexuals, even in jurisdictions, like the Netherlands, which is highly accepting of homosexuality.

    This would be bad enough, if the cause for homosexuality didn't have a cultural component. Unfortunately, though, it does. According to the APA website, a paper authored by the Karolinska Institute in Sweden and the University of London, homosexuality is partially due to cultural influences, such as "gay marriage" or school curricula that erroneously and wrongly teaches that same-sex behavior is a normal form of human sexual expression. Hence, people, whose temperament makes them more prone to homosexuality than others, are far more likely to become homosexual and engage in same-sex behavior, if society encourages it through "marriage" or other means.

    Consequently, society must do all it can to oppose efforts to legally recognize "gay marriage." To do so, we need to support people, like Liz Cheney, who oppose this harmful concept, and do what the media won't: educate the public with the facts summarized in this post, showing why "gay marriage" needs to be opposed and not endorsed.

    These facts are based on peer-reviewed research produced by major universities and research organizations - none of which oppose gay rights or "gay marriage." Examples are mentioned above. Others are in the short essay summarizing these facts in greater detail:


    Please read it. Then pass it, the essay link, or the information it contains on to as many as you can and ask that they do the same. Also send it to your legislators and demand that they vote against any efforts to legally recognize "gay marriage" or pass legislation if this harmful concept has already been legally recognized in your state. If we all take a few minutes now and then to implement these simple steps and don't assume others will do it for us, we can easily overcome the dishonest media bias and propaganda favoring "gay marriage" and return marriage to its only legitimate and beneficial form: between one man and one woman.
