So,,,NOW it's a "private matter" to raise Lesbian-born Babies ?

Dan Savage just NAILS the phony partisanship of the "Stone ALL LGBT but my Daughter" Christianist argument of President Dick Cheney and his fetid family/daughter/administration .

Mary Cheeney cries:---
“When Heather and I decided to have a baby, I knew it wasn’t going to be the most popular decision,” Ms. Cheney said, referring to her partner of 15 years, Heather Poe. She then gestured to her middle—any bulge disguised by a boxy jacket—and asserted: “This is a baby. This is a blessing from God... ---( wait,,,you mean she like , DID IT ? )---...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.


Dan says:---
Nice try, Mary.---Yes, it’s a baby, not a prop. My kid isn’t a prop either, but that never stopped right-wingers from attacking me and my boyfriend over our decision to become parents. The fitness of same-sex couples to parent is very much part of the political debate thanks to the GOP and the Christian bigots that make up its lunatic “base.” You’re a Republican, Mary, you worked on both of your father’s campaigns, and you kept your mouth clamped shut while Karl Rove and George Bush ran around the country attacking gay people, gay parents, and our children in 2000, 2002, 2004, and 2006. It’s a little late to declare the private choices of gays and lesbians unfit for public debate, Mary.


Our local deadly division of Hate&Homophobia , the so-called Idaho Values Alliance ( Seig Heil! ) has decided to NOT push their anti-gay adoption bill this year . Now I know why : Cheeney's Lesbian-Born Grand-daughter would piss all over their perverted parade .


When these Christianist groups want a hate bill in " our " legislature , they will get it , No Problema ! That's because our "representatives" in the Statehouse are over 50% Mormon . If they just practiced their religion and left me alone I'd love 'em . But they don't so I don't . Since "they" insist on shoving "their" religion Up My Ass , I will be a proud exposer of their evilness !


Sign this petition , that among other things says : "...Religion is a deeply personal matter. Americans must be free to practice their religion without coercion. Government exists to provide for the general well-being of all people, and its workings must be independent of specific religious doctrines. Simply put, there must be a separation of church and state...."
