Posted on 11/19/2013 5:23:53 AM PST by RoosterRedux
Former Vice President Dick Cheney took the side of his U.S. Senate candidate daughter Liz in her high-profile spat over gay marriage with lesbian sister Mary, saying Monday that he was "pained" that the family dispute had become so public, Politico reported.
Cheney and his wife, Lynne, issued a statement noting that the gay-rights issue was one "we have dealt with privately for many years."
"[We] are pained to see it become public," the parents wrote. "Since it has, one thing should be clear. Liz has always believed in the traditional definition of marriage."
The parents said Liz Cheney "has also always treated her sister and her sister's family with love and respect, exactly as she should have done. Compassion is called for, even when there is disagreement about such a fundamental matter, and Liz's many kindnesses shouldn't be used to distort her position."

RE: Sides With Daughter Liz
This sounds like a flip-flop to me.
He wants his daughter elected, I guess.
I blame Mary Chaney, who like all modern-day gays, has decided to become a professional gay. That means it’s gay, gay, gay, every day, every minute. And anyone who disagrees must be publically called out and humiliated.
We saw this with Gingrich’s half sister.
>> This sounds like a flip-flop to me.
Sounds like a manufactured solution to an awkward problem, to me. I bet it’s phony too; Liz doesn’t oppose homosex any more now than she ever did. Dad and Mary are in on it. Mary’s payoff will come AFTER sister Liz gets elected to the Senate and votes the “right” way (or so they connive).
Cheney has always tried to thread the needle with this issue. It’s clear he shares Liz’s opinion, but never wanted to throw his gay daughter under the bus. She chose to make this a public family debate. I would hate to be in his shoes.
If your pained, then you do not believe in what you say.
Dick Cheney is a beltway insider who makes conservative noises and his daughter Liz follows in his footsteps.
I don’t agree with Mark Levin on this senate race. I don’t care who wins......
The question is not: Should gay marriage be legal?
The question is: Why is government involved in marriage?
Yep. It’s going to he an interesting holiday season in the Cheney household.
DC fakes. Don’t be fooled.
I care who wins. It shouldn’t be a Democrat or a Cheney.
There is zero reason to trust the Cheney’s on this. This public spat looks manufactured.
Dick Cheney has already come out for end to DADT and for same sex marraige now he is pulling a Kerry to help Liz get elected. The lesbo isnt running for anything.
The little spat amongst the Cheneys is as real as a professional wrestling match.
Takes side with his straight daughter while claiming that his perverted daughter has a “family” with another woman.
Anybody else see the rank hypocrisy in that statement?
Mark Levin is pathetic on Senate endorsements these days. For every Cruz there is a Orrin Hatch.
Dick, meet Free Republic. You didn't kill your daughter or throw her under the bus, so you're a gay-loving RINO.
Love the sinner; hate the sin.
This is exactly what has happened with my friend, whose sister decided she was a lesbian and ended up "marrying" another woman. The sister holds the entire family hostage, threatening to deprive them of her presence unless they constantly offer praise for her lifestyle. Disagreement results in tantrums, and more than one holiday gathering has resulted in the lesbian couple storming out.
When they’re constantly sticking it in your face and demanding approval, I believe it’s because they know it’s wrong, and want you to validate their incorrect choice.
I have gay neighbors. They mind their own business, they’re not “in your face”, they’re friendly, and they don’t demand approval. Which is why we get along so well.
Gays are like illegals or islamophiliacs. They claim we have to be friends with haters and xenophobes who have no respect for our freedom in or der to be free.
So now you are an isolationist if you do not import... isolationists.
These people of the GOPe are retarded. They count beans regardless the quality of the beans. At least democrats make the evil beans, but the GOPe does the leg work of selling them.
They are all fabians.
I’ll give communists their dues: the GOPe is indeed selling the ropes with which we and them will be hanged wih.
