Stephen Bennett, a pro-family advocate who left the homosexual lifestyle and now has a ministry to convince others of its dangers, expressed his concern about the White House's decision to caption the photo this way. "What is extremely troubling is the official White House caption that appears underneath the photo on the official White House website," said Bennett.
Rather than merely stating that the child is the "child of their daughter Mary Cheney," the White House photo caption states, "... His parents are the Cheney's daughter Mary, and her partner, Heather Poe."
"Since when have two homosexual women been able to naturally procreate?," commented Bennett. "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."
A sperm donor is not a parent. A parent is someone who lovingly raises a child as their own whether they are biologically responsible or not. I guess these same right wingers would insult adoptive or step parents as well.
It's a shame that some people are so obsessed with the plumbing that they cannot recognize a family when they see one.
