VICE PRESIDENT DICK CHENEY COMES OUT AGAINST BLATANTLY DISCRIMINATORY FEDERAL MARRIAGE AMENDMENT; ACKNOWLEDGES "GAY" DAUGHTER
Statement by Matt Foreman, National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Executive Director:
"We are heartened that by taking a stand for his daughter, at long last Vice President Cheney is standing up for real family values. His words, however, mean very little unless the Bush/Cheney administration withdraws its aggressive support of the Federal Marriage Amendment, the so-called Marriage Protection Act and numerous other attacks on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender families that have been put forward over the last three and a half years. We look forward to the Vice President using his extraordinary influence with the President to make this happen."
