Actions Speak Louder Than Words Sir

"You're my daughter, and I love you, and I just want you to be happy," – Vice President Cheney’s reaction upon learning his daughter, Mary, is a lesbian.

This is eerily similar to what I told my son when I found out he was gay. The difference, aside from gender of course, is that I meant it when I said it and I prove it everyday through my actions. The Vice President’s words have proven to be quite empty. He is part of an administration that is horrendously homophobic and hateful and has gone out of its way to back it up in actions.

So again Mr. Vice President I must ask: how do you sleep at night?
