It's ridiculous to claim that homosexuality is normal. Obviously, if it was, none of us would be here. It is an anomaly in nature. Law-abiding homosexuals should, and do, have the same civil rights as the rest of us, including the right to get married. Millions of homosexuals have gotten married in America, and have even had kids the old-fashioned way.

To claim that homosexuals should be able to force the rest of us to accept their particular sexual perversion, by extending them a special right to a marriage between two people of the same sex, requires the drawing of a line. If you grant homosexuals that special right, are you discriminating against pedophiles if you don't allow them to marry children? Are you discriminating against the many Southern rednecks who might like to marry their favorite heifer? How about the father who'd rather be married to his daughter than to her mother? Or the Mormon who wants ten wives? How would we be allowed to discriminate against these?

These marriages requires society to draw a line. Most of us want to draw the marriage line at one man, one woman.

Vice President Cheney has been a very visible supporter of his daughter in every aspect of her life. Perhaps you should ask John Kerry if he has accepted lesbianism since his 2004 smear attempt. OBTW you might catch a few episodes on network TV (mostly ABC). Hollywood has been splashing kissing men for some time. I don't think the Almighty (I know what it means, sorry you don't) has anything to do with it except for maybe one little important thing called a soul. You baby-killing, terrorist-inspiring liars (unlike the fabricated ones in your book) need to do a little soul searching yourself. You think you're better and smarter than 70-80% of Americans and you hate how America came to be what with all the wars, capitalism and oppression. I can't understand why all these people want to come here so bad. It must be to join the 20% pseudointellectuals that have their own party, judicial branch, media outlets, academia and useful special interest idiots with their brain-dead minions.

I'm curious, if Mary Cheney has such a great relationship with her partner, and things were just peachy on the West Coast, why move from liberal California to conservative Virginia?
