In the family way

Normally I really don't care to read what amounts to gossip about Mary Cheney, VP Dick Cheney's lesbian daughter. But there wasn't any other interesting news, and I had to read something. This quote caught my eye, in an article on

"Love can't replace a mother and a father."

That's right. Because a committed, well-educated couple that will love and care for their child cannot ever, under any circumstances, be considered worthwhile unless it looks exactly like the ideal mommy-daddy family. It's the image that matters, not the child.

I don't get it.

From the Onion, American Voices:

Roger Warrens,
"It's deplorable that a celebrity couple like this would deliberately bring into the world a child that Christians can't love."
