For the Record:

Elizabeth Cheney does not believe in her lesbian sister’s right to marry

Sis' response: 'You're dead wrong, freedom means freedom for everyone'
Saturday, August 31, 2013

“I am strongly pro-life and I am not pro-gay marriage.

Elizabeth Cheney

“I believe the issue of marriage must be decided by the states, and by the people in the states, not by judges and not even by legislators, but by the people themselves.”

– Elizabeth Cheney, Daughter of former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney, as quoted by The Daily Caller.

Cheney’s younger sister, Mary, is openly gay and married her partner Heather Poe last year. Elizabeth Cheney is running for the Republican nomination for a U.S. Senate seat from Wyoming.

In response, Mary Cheney posted to Facebook on Friday night: “For the record, I love my sister, but she is dead wrong on the issue of marriage. … Freedom means freedom for everyone.”

    Posted on Saturday, August 31, 2013 at 6:31pm
  27. And this surprises you? This absolutely should be decided by judges, who know the law. Not by people who want a say in matters that are none of their business like how other people live their lives.

    Posted on Saturday, August 31, 2013 at 6:32pm
  28. you know that government is placed by the people and for the people. It is and can be a corrupt system but its main purpose was not only to serve the people but also protect them from themselves. As you can see with things like the civil rights movement. People were influenced and corrupt by other people who were racist. They were influenced by that concept of being put out to dry or left behind or even getting harmed because they believe in something differently. Its like a form of hysteria. You dont realize it until told. But some people when they are even told they get all defensive.

    Posted on Saturday, August 31, 2013 at 6:32pm
  29. Maybe her sister doesn´t believe in Elizabeth´s right to marry a man!

  30. What a … So much for sisterly support, not.

    Posted on Saturday, August 31, 2013 at 6:32pm
  31. Did I miss something? Is there more to that quote than what´s posted? I fail to see where she says she doesn´t believe in her sisters right to marry just that it should be a state´s rights issue instead of a federal issue.

    Posted on Saturday, August 31, 2013 at 6:32pm
  32. I feel the same way about heterosexual marriage. However, just to make it fair and avoid subjectivity, only queers can vote on whether you can stay married. You better hope we don´t bear a grudge… ;)

    Posted on Saturday, August 31, 2013 at 6:40pm
  41. Elizabeth, “the people themselves” believe in gay marriage equality! Who are you to judge? You are causing grief in your family, which will harm everyone forever! Rethink and choose love and peace.

    Posted on Saturday, August 31, 2013 at 6:40pm
  42. Liz, you are so ignorant!

    Posted on Saturday, August 31, 2013 at 6:40pm
  43. How about this.. I don´t believe in Elizabeth Cheney. Despite clear evidence that she exists, my beliefs are strong and therefore I believe she doesn´t exist. It´s my right to believe in whatever I want so there. Sorry lizzy dear, it´s nothing personal, I just have to be true to my beliefs.

    Posted on Saturday, August 31, 2013 at 6:41pm
  44. I can totally relate, my sister has done the same to me, in more ways than just on the marriage issue. It really sucks being the only gay person in a family of Homophobes! It sucks that we have to depend on the kindness of the majority of the population to vote our rights into law. It sucks that those rights are even up for others to decide, when did we ever get to vote on the rights granted to Heterosexuals? We can´t vote in our own rights, we are out numbered 99 to 1, so we always have to depend on the mercy from the majority and we always have to hope that the Homophobes and bigots are outnumbered by the combination of our allies and ourselves, to win our rights.

    Posted on Saturday, August 31, 2013 at 6:43pm
  45. The Cheney family is full of gay people I´ve met his cousin…he´s gay too. To have so many gay family members and to be so anti LGBT is so hypocritical.

  51. your apology negates your belief of her non existence…as does her belief the right to marry is a political concern at all…all y´all are wrong I marry whom I love and that is my business not anyone else´s except the woman of my affections. As long as she agrees, no one else´s thought matter!

  52. Ericka,i was the only Trans* in a religious,bigoted,ignorant and conservative household/family.so you could say that my outcome was a bad one.I have no family now and why such stuff like this hits home and hard.you never really know unconditional love until the flood gates open wide.its then you learn what true unconditional love is

  68. She is stupid. It is too confusing having the states decide the law. For years 16 year olds have been crossing state lines to get married without parents approval. All states should have the same marriage laws, because of the federal legal status it creates.

    Posted on Saturday, August 31, 2013 at 7:01pm

    Posted on Saturday, August 31, 2013 at 7:41pm
  95. no one has the right to interfere with other peoples happiness! straight people like her are just pissed off because we are many times more serious about marriage than they are… after all, it wasn´t us gay people who drove the divorce rate sky high (over 50%). they also love throwing around the bible. they forget that god is against divorce too, but choose to ignore that! if they don´t like gay marriage, don´t get one! if they don´t like gay people, they need to keep their damn legs closed cause it is them who keep having gay kids!

  103. Marriage should never be decided by you religious freaks… I do not believe in marriage because it is a religious ceremony. Religion has nothing to do with the benefits that people get when they are married. Seperation of church and state.

    Posted on Saturday, August 31, 2013 at 7:51pm
  104. Angie Arthurs – actually, religion has little to do with marriage! I see it as a civil ceremony, making it a civil right. I am still single, but if or when I meet the right guy, I want to marry him. I am spiritual, not religious. I plan on having no religion-related bs. I also want it outside!

  109. Yes the segregationists felt the same way they wanted segregation decided by the states not federal law but guess what no ones constitutional rights can or should be voted on if that were the case the south would be still segregated forcibly, but yes they found away to keep segregation especially in schools and housing its called economic oppression though lack of good education opportunity and zoning.

  145. She´d sing a different tune if her state decided to allow gay marriage. You´d see the quickest about-face there ever was when it comes to “let the states decide”. :P

  153. who cares!!!

    Posted on Saturday, August 31, 2013 at 10:24pm
  154. she´s courting the other bigots of her state, those whose votes she doesn´t already own because they work for Haliburton…

    Posted on Saturday, August 31, 2013 at 10:25pm
  155. Well if she believes that then I believe that straight marriage should be re-voted on by each state what would she think about that

    Posted on Saturday, August 31, 2013 at 10:26pm
  156. The people ARE making their desires known, they want marriage equality.

  157. Bigoted pig

    Posted on Saturday, August 31, 2013 at 10:33pm
  158. I hope her sister gives her the verbal smack down she deserves. there is nothing worse than a sibling putting their political agenda before a family member. it speaks volumes about her lack of a soul.

    Posted on Saturday, August 31, 2013 at 10:39pm
  159. What a loving family. Imagine: her father is a better human being than she is, and he´s a terrible human being.

  161. Nice sister… NOT…

    Posted on Saturday, August 31, 2013 at 10:43pm
  162. if she really thinks that marriage must be defined by the people, why are heterosexuals any more “the people” than homosexuals? we are in the act of defining marriage, much as she does not like it. even though i do not have the paperwork, i consider myself married and my partner my next of kin. get over it.

    Posted on Saturday, August 31, 2013 at 10:44pm
  163. Ms. Elizabeth Cheney, Who are you to think you and your straight allies have the right to decide other people´s right to marry? You´re not above us or better than us LGBT folks. I believe that´s the problem, a lot of straight folks (just as White folks did to Black folks back in the day) think we´re somehow lower than them and it´s up to them to decide what rights we have and when we should have them and then if/when we get those rights, we should bow to them and kiss their feet for giving them to us. Sorry, NOT going to happen here!

    Posted on Saturday, August 31, 2013 at 10:47pm
  164. WELL WHAT EVER… GOD..,DO ALL THE BELIEVING…SET BACK AND LET GOD….. BE THE JUDGE….HEY AND HER SISTER MIGHT BELIEVE IN HER,BEING STRIGHT ;

  166. I don´t believe in Elizabeth Cheney. Or Dick Cheney. I think I ate snow pea ice cream too close to bedtime and my wacky mind simply created their larger than life creepiness. Oh, and Lynn Cheney, too.

    Posted on Saturday, August 31, 2013 at 11:24pm
  167. two adults should be allowed to marry ,no matter if they are straight or gay,as long as they are 18 to 20 and older.i think all states should recognize the right to marry for gay and lesbians,because its not good for people to live a lie .its good when people are comfortable being themselves ,then no one gets hurt,for example a gay man marrying a woman ,when he really wants to be with a man .no one gets hurt if the gay man feels that society accepts him and the straight woman does not get hurt because the gay man is comfortable being himself.

    Posted on Saturday, August 31, 2013 at 11:30pm

  175. I would disown my family if that is their opinion. I would never want to be associated with that kind of hate , bigotry , and discrimination. I support you Mary Cheney and your right to marry whoever you love. It is your right and your business. Do not let their ignorance of government and your God given right get to you. You deserve a better family than that.

    Posted on Sunday, September 1, 2013 at 12:55am
  176. Totally disgusted by the entire Cheney family

    Posted on Sunday, September 1, 2013 at 1:14am
  177. Agreed Chuck it really isn´t up to others to tell us who to love it´s perverse that we have to fight for a right that everyone else takes for granted. It is quite upsetting that others sit in judgement on a civil right. It´s only the Christians and other religions that make it more difficult.

    Posted on Sunday, September 1, 2013 at 1:15am
  178. I don´t believe in Elizabeth Cheneys right to breathe! So there.

    Posted on Sunday, September 1, 2013 at 1:23am
  179. Put a sock in it Elizabeth Cheney, you´re embarrassing!! Too late to trip a freight train with your mouth. Open up your mind instead and get into the 21st century lady. WE ARE HERE, WE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN HERE AND WE ARE STAYING, LOUD AND PROUD!!

    Posted on Sunday, September 1, 2013 at 2:52am
  191. Of course, her father is just a tiny bit more personable than Vladimir Putin, so I honestly don´t expect a whole lot from her…

    Posted on Sunday, September 1, 2013 at 3:03am
  192. states rights are big with the red(neck) states who used to burn crosses and hang black people

    Posted on Sunday, September 1, 2013 at 3:17am
  193. then she should stay home and shut up, for the bible tells her so. :-)

    Posted on Sunday, September 1, 2013 at 3:17am

  195. As a gay man from Wyoming, I am not surprised by her actions…

    Posted on Sunday, September 1, 2013 at 4:00am
  196. I believe this is caused by the fact that Elizabeth Cheney is what we would call in layman´s terms “A major asshole.”

    Posted on Sunday, September 1, 2013 at 4:13am
  197. Liz Cheney should take her father on a flight out of this country so he can be arrested on war crimes. She seriously should STFU about issues she has no clue about.

  204. She can´t get GOP support unless she proves she is the most extreme, and advocating mob rule in deciding who gets what rights is what the Republican Tea Party wants.

    Posted on Sunday, September 1, 2013 at 5:34am
  205. What a fucken bitch. To deny her sister her rights a person to marry. Who do you think you are to take someones right away? If two adults wanna be with each other (no matter if you´re attracted to the same sex), then you should be allowed to marry. Who cares what other people think. It´s your right as a person to marry the person you love (no matter what).

    Posted on Sunday, September 1, 2013 at 5:52am

  209. What a fuckin´ monster. 100 years ago, she wouldn´t have been able to vote, have credit, get a degree, or basically do shit. Rich fucking spoiled silver-spoon brat is in no position to deny rights to anyone for anything. Spoiled little girl needs a spanking and a gag and told to shut up.

  224. BITCH!

    Posted on Sunday, September 1, 2013 at 12:58pm
  225. Personnally I think she is just pandering to the far right but it may blow up in her face here in Wyoming. Yes we have some tea partiers and the State is predominently GOP but she is not receiving a very warm welcome with her radical ideas.

    Posted on Sunday, September 1, 2013 at 1:06pm
  226. I would disown her as a family member. tell them all where to go. She wont make it far in politics anyway. might as well give that up.

  244. Um, no, a marriage is a contract between two consenting adults and the government. It has nothing to do with the bible, that is called holy matrimony. I think she needs to keep her and her fascist friends noses out of other peoples business.
