Oh, Stephen Bennett

Rather kooky and always enjoyable ex-gay-for-pay Stephen Bennett has come out with another rant - this time against Samuel David Cheney. You might remember him from when he pushed a YouTube white supremacist. Well, Mr. Concerned Woman doesn't like the caption to that White House photo of Baby Samuel with his grandparents, he doesn't like it one bit.

Consider:

What is so hypocritical of this Administration is its "double-speak."

President George W. Bush held several presses conferences calling for a Federal Marriage Amendment to protect the God-ordained institution of marriage between one man and one woman, while homosexuals pushed for the union of two men or two women to be equally recognized as real "marriage."

However, the President's number two, right hand man, Vice President Dick Cheney, clearly rebels against his superior, makes a public mockery of the President and the current Administration he is supposed to represent, and clearly holds to a different set of moral standards and beliefs.

I agree here with Stephen; this administration isn't always honest.

He goes on:

While this little innocent child Samuel David Cheney deserves every fighting chance at life, the sins of two women, Mary Cheney and Heather Poe, have deliberately denied the Vice President's grandson one of the most basic human rights of all: the right to a Daddy and a Mommy.
I don't know if I could list all basic human rights, but I'd say that water, food, education, shelter, and health care all come before being raised in a McFamily. Just sayin', we're the ones always getting portrayed as superficial and obsessed with the politics of sexual orientation. And we're the ones who are being accused of co-opting human rights discourse for superficial projects (some of them are, but making sure that Samuel gets raised without Heather around seems a lot more superficial than anything the HRC has done), but apparently the FMA trumps universal health care as an important human right.

Now let's just wait for Mary to come out and tell the world that those homosexual activists are just so mean to her and how the Left made her baby seem like a political statement.

The rest of this abomination is after the jump.

On May 23, 2007, the White House, silently and without any fanfare, released an official White House photo of Vice President Dick Cheney and his wife, Lynne Cheney, welcoming their sixth grandchild, Samuel David Cheney, into the Cheney fold.

The beautiful little tyke weighed in at 8 lbs., 6 oz. and was born at 9:46 a.m. at Sibley House in Washington, D.C.

What is extremely troubling is the official White House caption that appears underneath the photo on the official White House website:

... His parents are the Cheney's daughter Mary, and her partner, Heather Poe. White House photo by David Bohrer.

Since when have two homosexual women been able to naturally procreate?

Fact is Mary Cheney, the Vice President's daughter - in one way or another - received a male's sperm. She is the biological mother, parent number one, and some man, somewhere out there, is Samuel David's real biological father, parent number two.

Unlike the official White House photo caption, a man and a woman, a Daddy and a Mommy, are Samuel David Cheney's REAL biological parents.

Then who is Heather Poe?

Heather Poe is Mary Cheney's live-in lesbian lover. She may act like a parent, she may treat the baby as a parent, she may love this baby with all of her heart, but in this reality we all live in, Heather Poe is NOT the baby's real parent. She has NO biological connection to the child whatsoever. Some man, the baby's real Daddy, is the child's other REAL parent.

If the Vice President and his wife Lynne are joining their daughter Mary in playing this homosexual game of "house," then all have chosen their roles and designated lesbian lover Heather Poe as the "Daddy."

Everyone knows there can only be one REAL biological Mommy. We are all grown adults. Playing "house" is a game for children, not for The White House or the Vice President and his wife.

What is so hypocritical of this Administration is its "double-speak."

President George W. Bush held several presses conferences calling for a Federal Marriage Amendment to protect the God-ordained institution of marriage between one man and one woman, while homosexuals pushed for the union of two men or two women to be equally recognized as real "marriage."

However, the President's number two, right hand man, Vice President Dick Cheney, clearly rebels against his superior, makes a public mockery of the President and the current Administration he is supposed to represent, and clearly holds to a different set of moral standards and beliefs.

When President Bush stood on the victory stage several years ago after being elected into office by values voters, Mary Cheney was on stage as well with her lesbian lover, Heather Poe. It was a slap in the face to the values voters who had just elected the duo into office. That wound has never healed.

While this little innocent child Samuel David Cheney deserves every fighting chance at life, the sins of two women, Mary Cheney and Heather Poe, have deliberately denied the Vice President's grandson one of the most basic human rights of all: the right to a Daddy and a Mommy.

I say shame on the White House, shame on the President and shame on the Vice President for allowing such a caption to be "officially" added onto the White House website and such a beautiful photo of two happy grandparents and their new grandchild.

I guess we can tragically and officially say both the White House and Bush Administration have officially recognized the sinful sexual unions of homosexuals, as well as recognized and embraced the tragedy of the social experiment of homosexual parenting.

It may be just me, but I was a bit weirded out when I hit the jump and thought I was reading YOUR writing, Bil--took me a minute to realize that the whole text post-jump was Bennett's. Apparently, I'm very reliant on stylistic clues (ie block quote style)!

Bil, I totally agree with your list of basic human rights, and would add that personal privacy and autonomy also come before "the right to a mommy and a daddy". If he wants to phrase that instead as "the right to a caring family" or "the right to love and be loved" then I'm all for it... but oh, yeah, we're talking to Stephen Bennett and loving care don't mean nearly as much as making sure that there's a penis for every vagina.

I also agree that this administration is totally dishonest, yet I am surprised and charmed that part of the caption said of baby Sam: "His parents are the Cheney's daughter Mary, and her partner, Heather Poe." All the while of course, I'm still absolutely disgusted that neither mom made it into the photo.

But I think what really kills me about Bennett's statement is: "in this reality we all live in, Heather Poe is NOT the baby's real parent. She has NO biological connection to the child whatsoever. Some man, the baby's real Daddy, is the child's other REAL parent."

This is such an unbelievable insult not just to Heather Poe, but to EVERY adoptive parent, gay or straight, that adoption advocates should be calling for his head!

Sorry to Alex and Bil--somehow missed who posted this!

No worries, Jen. :) The new design will have headshots beside each post so folks won't be as confused as they get now about who authored what posts. I'm sure Alex is getting tired of being referred to as "Bil" all the time... LOL

I'll go in and blockquote the text to make it easier to distinguish.

As for the post, the only thing I can say is, "What an asshole!"

Thanks for blockquoting what I did, Bil. I should write something up like that and become an ex-gay. I hear that pays better than this "living honestly" thing I've got going does.

And yeah I'm always being confused w/ you Bil which is funny considering we have very different writing styles and are coming from different ideological perspectives. Gosh! Doesn't everyone read and reread every post on this site?

It is humorous how often it happens, isn't it Alex? I don't think we have similar writing styles either, but it happens, what, at least every other week? Personally, I find it an honor. I enjoy your writing and I'm okay with folks comparing me to you. :) I guess it means we're a good team on here, eh?

Likewise Bil. Although I don't know if it goes the other way, you being called "alex", nor have I seen any of the other contributors get referred to as "bil". Maybe we should start having split-screen debates on here, and one of us could be the "conservative" and the other could be the "liberal", and I'd wear a bow-tie.

Wait... that wouldn't do anything.
