A House DividedBy Emelius at 7:52 PM
Cheney's gay marriage comments draw criticism from both foes and proponents as he suggests that the matter should be left up to states.
"Lynne and I have a gay daughter, so it's an issue our family is very familiar with," Cheney told an audience that included his daughter. "With the respect to the question of relationships, my general view is freedom means freedom for everyone ... People ought to be free to enter into any kind of relationship they want to.
Cheney however refused to say that he would not support President George Bush's amendment to ban gay marriage.
Addressing Bush's position on the amendment, Cheney said, "at this point, save my own preference, as I have stated, but the president makes policy for the administration. He's made it clear that he does, in fact, support a constitutional amendment on this issue."
Simply put, POTUS and VPOTUS are a team and they won't let a thing like the love of two people stand in the way of Christian happiness.
