Same Coin, Two Sides

It isn't often that I agree with Pam Spaulding on something, but in this case, she's very right.

This, I think, is the statement that best sums up the problem:
There should be no touch of sadness when a healthy baby boy is born into a home with two parents, but in this case, we’re afraid, there is.

While we celebrate new life, we cannot celebrate homosexual parenting –– which involves intentionally denying a child either a mom or a dad. In this case, young Samuel David –– who, as a Cheney, will surely enjoy privileges and comforts greater than most children born in 2007 –– will be missing an irreplaceable one: a father, to have as a loving guide, male authority, friend and role model as he grows from boy into man.

Well, you're not alone, Mr. LaBarbera; there are a whole lot of other people expressing "sadness" over how awful young Master Cheney will have it, given that, according to them, Satan is his grandfather, Medusa his grandmother, and two evil self-loathing and hateful lesbian witches, who have gleefully laughed and clapped their hands as thousands of their helpless LGBT counterparts were marched off to the gas chambers, are his mothers. And oddly enough, they manage to sneak in a shot at the fact that his family is well-off, too.

Granted, you haven't wished him ill yet, but you're probably saving that for your launch of your latest "research" finding confirming that the children of gay parents die earlier.

I do find it more than a bit amusing that two groups of people who supposedly loathe everything there is about each other are both using the excuse of "concern over the baby" for saying rather mean, vile, and vicious things about him and his family.

Perhaps that's because ideology is neither an indicator or deterrent of hate tactics.
