Lynne Cheney Restates Opposition to the FMA
I don't support an amendment to the Constitution banning gay marriage. I think it's a matter that should be left to the states. As a conservative, I don't support constitutional amendments generally unless the cause is clear and evident. The issue here, of course, is that some people think a constitutional amendment is necessary in order to preserve the rights of the states. I happen not to come down on that side of the issue and, indeed, there are many Republicans who do [not]. I think if you looked at our national convention, for example, among the prominent speakers -- Gov. Schwarzenegger, Rudy Giuliani -- feel the same way. It's not an issue that sets the Republican Party apart in one great mass. It's an issue upon which people differ." - Lynne Cheney, on NPR's Fresh Air, February 9.
Good for Mrs. Cheney. Some gay lefties are angry that Cheney didn't mention her daughter in this quote. That makes no sense to me.
Meanwhile Mike Rogers from the Outing Blog is livid about Lynne Cheney's interview.
