I am a proponent of marriage equality, and especially applaud those on the right who buck their party’s dogma and support full equality. One such person who comes to mind is Ted Olson, the attorney who arguably put George W Bush in the White House. If Chris Christie ever “evolves” and allows his GOP legislators to vote their conscience on this issue, I would applaud him, too.
But something disturbed me when I saw a full page ad in the New York Times where one of the supporters of marriage equality was former Vice President Dick Cheney. One of Cheney’s daughters is gay, and he’s given at least passive support to marriage equality. But Cheney is evil incarnate – sending thousands of American men and women to their deaths in an illegal and unnecessary war. Who needs “friends” like this?
