Gay Parents Recognized by the White House

Most of you know that Mary Cheney and her partner Heather had a baby boy last week.  The White House provided a picture of the baby with his grandparents Dick and Lynne Cheney.  The parents were absent, which says a lot.  But to my utter surprise, the official statement from the White House below the picture recognizes his parents (I have done the bolding and the underlining):

Vice President Dick Cheney and his wife, Lynne Cheney, welcomed their sixth grandchild, Samuel David Cheney, Wednesday, May 23, 2007. He weighed 8 lbs., 6 oz and was born at 9:46 a.m. at Sibley Hospital in Washington, D.C. His parents are the Cheneys’ daughter Mary, and her partner, Heather Poe. White House photo by David Bohrer.

All I can say is ‘wow.’  So two lesbians can be the parents of a child, at least according to the White House!

I can only imagine the fits that some anti-gay crusaders are having, especially after Rice recognized a gay man and his partner just a few months ago!  🙂
