What I try to do is point out to the many anti-gay commenters on this site is that the individuals they routinely demean, are real people with real families who love them, from all political, religious, and racial groups. I know that many on this site revere VP Cheney. He believes his daughter Mary should have all federal and state rights of marriage. The comments here need to understand that when they denigrate LGBT people, they are denigrating, as an example, Cheney's daughter. People on this site may feel free to call LGBT sinners, perverts, awful people who will destroy America and the world - but I have a feeling that if our former VP heard any of you say this, he would defend his daughter and tell you to go to hell.
