Mary Cheney's 'Blessing from God'

Vice President Dick Cheney's lesbian daughter Mary, who is pregnant, has defended her decision to have a baby without benefit of a father.

Press reports this week quote Mary Cheney saying that her decision to have a child was not a political statement. "This is a blessing from God," Ms. Cheney told a New York audience.

Fair enough. We like to think that this is a free country—free enough that even Mary and her 15-year partner, Heather Poe, can have a perfectly wonderful child if they so desire.

Naturally, Dr. James Dobson and other moral scolds have criticized Ms. Cheney. Apparently, Mary's "blessing from God" isn't Godly enough to win Dr. Dobson's approval.
