VP Cheney raise $ for Rep. Marilyn Musgrave

Cheney Fundraising for Colo. Congresswoman
DENVER - Vice President Dick Cheney helped raise an estimated $200,000 Monday for the campaign of Republican Rep. Marilyn Musgrave (news, bio, voting record), who is considered one of the most vulnerable incumbents in Congress.

Musgrave, one of the original sponsors of a proposed constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, has proved "to be exactly the right person for the job," Cheney told a crowd about 200 people who paid $500 to $4,000 to attend the luncheon in downtown Denver.
No big news, A big time Republican raising money for an other Republican.

But, Marilyn Musgrave want to treat Dick Cheney gay daughter like a second class citizen.
Marriage is a sacred institution in America, with a strong foundation in religious, legal, economic, and cultural traditions. Although the institution has seen various evolutions in each of these realms, it remains basically the same today as during this nation's founding.

Marriage is a unique union between one woman and one man. [...]

Given this turmoil, however, marriage is enduring. On a micro level, this union is built to withstand personal conflicts between a committed couple, and on a broader scale marriage has withstood various social and political testing.

Furthermore, the sanctity of this institution, with the presence of one man and one woman committed to each other, is by far the best environment for raising children. [...]

As it is known today, marriage is facing a particular danger -- the threat of radical redefinition. The essential role this institution plays in American society is on the verge of being undone by a handful of judges.

The general public may not be aware that gay activists are on the cusp of using the courts to dismantle the longstanding definition of marriage.

The gay and lesbian lobby is shopping around various state courts looking to find a group of judges to legitimize their lifestyle as an equivalent to traditional marriage. This lobby is astonishingly close to achieving its goal - same sex marriage.[..]

Accepting gay marriage as an equivalent to traditional marriage will create a crisis far more severe than any current danger marriage is facing. In particular, the vital role of marriage in raising children will be uprooted.

Furthermore, the boundaries that define marriage will be forever blurred. Any imaginable relationship will be freed from justification. American society will be forced to accept any relationship, no matter what form it takes.

One man and one woman would no longer be the vanguard.

The attempt to deconstruct marriage and make same sex unions equivalent to traditional marriage must not be overlooked nor underestimated. This is a real and present danger that will undermine the foundation that makes the union between a woman and a man uniquely necessary.
Dick Cheney raised money for a person who hate his daughter life style, but he does not care. President Bush and VP Cheney actively sought the support of anti-homosexual bigots in order to hold on to power.
