Last week, Mary Cheney hosted a fundraiser in Indianapolis to help fight the proposed amendment to constitutionally ban gay marriage in Indiana. Indystar reports:

Mary CheneyOn Wednesday night, she played up her conservative bona fides before a group of about 100 supporters before laying out her opposition to the amendment.

"Now, this may come as a shock to some of you, but I'm pretty conservative. Actually, I'm really conservative," she deadpanned.

During her brief comments, she said gay couples raising children – such as Cheney and her wife, who have two daughters – have become increasingly common and urged lawmakers not bar that from happening in Indiana

"As a conservative, I also believe that strong families are the cornerstone of our society, and that we as a society need to do everything we can to ensure that all families are provided for the greatest opportunity," she said. "I believe that all families – regardless of how they look, or how they're made, or where they live – that all families deserve to be treated with the same respect, rights and legal recognition."

If lawmakers approve the amendment during the upcoming session it would then go before voters on the 2014 ballot.

    Republicans are selfish. Mary Cheney is a lesbian, thus, she supports gay rights purely for her selfish interests.

  2. Brian in Texas says

    It still doesn’t erase the damage that her and her family have done to gays in the recent past.

    She’s doing a good thing. Some of you commenters are really good at immature name-calling but Mary is actually doing something and raising money and getting press attention for a good cause. What are you all doing besides sitting on your asses?

  4. MaryM says

    Mary Cheney donates money to candidates who want constitutional amendments to strip her of her rights.

    She’s a fetid sh*tstain of a human being.

    (Then again being the daughter of a deranged, murderous war criminal may have affected her.).

    What type of group is Freedom Indiana – is that some front for some neo-con group?

    Sorry, anything Cheney is impossible to support. Sure, great cause, the messenger, not a good cause. All the Cheneys live in a bubble of not having to get their hands dirty with the real world.

    Mary, divest yourself of all the family treasure you accumulated on your name. You’re no conservative, you’re no liberal, you’re just about Mary. You only stand for Mary.

    Go to N. Korea.

  6. MaryM says

    Freedom Indiana is clearly looking to lose all legitimacy as a campaigning group by getting a monster like Mary Cheney to support their campaign.

    Cheney’s own family hate her – that’s too bad for her of course but seeing as she’s willing to sell out her own community for their approval then no group should have to endure her.

    I spit on Mary Cheney – useless, evil, unloved scumbag that she is.

    @MARYM: What kind of person posts about another: “She’s a fetid sh*tstain of a human being” and : I spit on Mary Cheney – useless unloved scumbag that she is”? Do you think he/she needs therapy or is he/she just vulgar by nature? A psychologically well balanced human being would be embarrassed to see these words posted above their name.

  8. MaryM says

    Well I am not embarrassed by those words -I believe them and stand by them.

    Mary Cheney is a usless, unloved fetid sh*tstain, scumbag of a human being for the simple fact that she is a homophobic monster.

    She is scum of the earth for her support for changing the constitution to deny her own people legal equality.

    The fact that her father is a mass murdering war criminal has nothing to do with this.

    People like Ken Mehlman, Mary Cheney and Bill Clinton deserve eternal condemnation for the havoc they knowingly wreaked on millions of LGBT lives.

    Simply saying ‘Í’M SOWWEE’ doesn’t cut it.

    Their legacies are legacies of hatred and division.

    Rubbish. She’s a Republican. Republicans are scum. Period. Any gay or lesbian who supports any Republican candidate is essentially supporting that political party who hates us and wishes us much ill-will. You can’t be gay and a Republican. If you think you can, you’re a deluded hypocrite and a sell-out.

    I rarely read the comments on this site anymore because they seem to always be from bitter and nasty posters. I see that still hasn’t changed. It’s sad and not productive.
    Calling people scum and saying you spit on them is beyond childish. Grow up, get therapy and act like an adult.

  11. RonCharles says

    Mary Cheney has done a good thing here, and she should be applauded for it. Her speech will resonate with many people who would not normally support gay marriage, and it is very likely that she will persuade them in a way that others could not to come around to being in favour of gay marriage.

    To brag about being conservative? WTF! There is nothing conservatives have to offer us. They want to take the country backwards to a dangerous place where we were considered mentally ill and had to marry women as a cover so we wouldn’t be fired or excommunicated from society. Very scary indeed!

  13. ChiChiMan says

    @all of the Mary Cheney lovers: the Cheneys ARE scum. This isn’t name-calling. They do scummy things, make scummy deals and tell scummy lies. They are completely selfish and devoid of morals.

    The ONLY reason Mary Cheney cares about marriage equality is because she’s a lesbian. If she could take a pill to become hetero, she would have taken it years ago and her family would have found some scummy way to make money off of the pill sales.

    Finally, to the guy who asked what we’re doing instead of sitting on our butts? I spent the weekend putting together a holiday party for homeless LGBT kids – the kind of kids the scummy Cheneys don’t give a damn about!

    Uh, Mary, we hate you. We would walk out of any kind of conference if you showed up. You must be preaching to straight people, or really rich people, but you can’t fool us, we’re not buying any of it. You have zero credibility. That Coors gig was BS and they only hired you and paid you some insane fee because of your political connections.
