Dick Cheney Supports Gay Marriage

CHENEY: As many of you know, one of my daughters is gay and it is something we have lived with for a long time in our family. I think people ought to be free to enter into any kind of union they wish. Any kind of arrangement they wish. The question of whether or not there ought to be a federal statute to protect this, I don’t support. I do believe that the historically the way marriage has been regulated is at the state level. It has always been a state issue and I think that is the way it ought to be handled, on a state-by-state basis. But I don’t have any problem with that. People ought to get a shot at that.

More proof that gay marriage is an idea whose time has come.

We find ourselves agreeing with Mr. Cheney more and more these days.

Cheney on gay marriage: “Freedom means freedom for everyone…people ought to be free to enter into any kind of union they wish.”

Obama on gay marriage: *crickets*.

  1. I fully agree with Cheney that this is a issue for the states and not the federal government.

    I also think the lives of gays are really none of my business after a certain point. What they do with their own money, who they entrust with their legal stuff, how stuff gets shared…thats pretty much what civil union boils down to and they deserve that much protection of their rights and interests. Fighting against it seems a bit arbitrary and unjust. As a conservative I’ve had to wrestle with this issue and finally just accepted it for what it was. Its not a nefarious plot to undermine marriage.
