Cheney supports gay marriage

Cheney said he thinks gay couples should have the opportunity to get married , but I think he is flat wrong about how it should be legislated;

“And I think that’s the way it ought to be handled today, that is, on a state-by-state basis. Different states will make different decisions. But I don’t have any problem with that. I think people ought to get a shot at that,” he said.

I have often said that social issues like gay marriage, drug legalization and abortion should be Federally regulated because they affect ALL Americans. If a gay couple gets married in a state that it is legal, and move to a state that it is not legal, is their marriage void? No, it wouldn’t be. If we are going to legalize gay marriage, legalize it in the entire country. If we believe in equal rights in America, it should apply to all 5o states. I think Cheney is taking an ‘out’ when it comes to this issue by calling it a state issue. Nice try though.

I think they used to refer to slavery as a state issue.

Cheney is still flip flopping on this. He obviously ignored speaking of the issue but he also made statements suggesting he would be ok with civil unions but not traditional marriage.

Now that he is out of office he is trying to have his cake and eat it too, and I’m not buying it. I suspect because of his daughter he has always felt this way, but that just makes his act while in office that much more disgusting.

It doesn’t exactly make the man more trustworthy.
