Dick and Lynne Cheney are ‘Pained’ That the Family Feud Over Gay Marriage Has Become Public


Dick and Lynne Cheney have released a statement in response to the family feud that broke out publicly yesterday after Wyomin Senate candidate's appearance on FOX News Sunday.

"This is an issue we have dealt with privately for many years, and we are pained to see it become public. Since it has, one thing should be clear. Liz has always believed in the traditional definition of marriage. She has also always treated her sister and her sister's family with love and respect, exactly as she should have done. Compassion is called for, even when there is a disagreement about such a fundamental matter and Liz's many kindnesses shouldn't be used to distort her position."

To recap, Liz says she favors "traditional marriage" and her lesbian sister Mary and Mary's wife Heather Poe aren't having it anymore.
