‘Pained’ Cheney Defends Liz in Public Spat Between Daughters.


Former Vice President Dick Cheney said he and his wife Lynne are “pained” over the public row between daughters Liz and Mary over gay marriage, according to Politico.
Liz Cheney is challenging incumbent Sen. Mike Enzi in the Wyoming Republican primary next August. Though both Cheney and Enzi oppose it, her candidacy has become strongly identified with opposition to gay marriage.
Mary Cheney told The New York Times, “What amazes me is that she says she’s running to be a new generation of leader. I’m not sure how sticking to the positions of the last 20 or 30 years is the best way to do that.”
And in a Facebook post she wrote: “Liz — this isn’t just an issue on which we disagree, you’re just wrong — and on the wrong side of history.”
On her own Facebook page Mary’s wife Heather Poe wrote: “Liz has been a guest in our home, has spent time and shared holidays with our children, and when Mary and I got married in 2012 — she didn’t hesitate to tell us how happy she was for us. To have her now say she doesn’t support our right to marry is offensive to say the least.”
The former vice president and his wife said they were “surprised” that Mary and Heather Poe had publicly attacked Liz on Facebook and “wished it hadn’t happened” since the gay issue had “always been dealt with within the context of the family, and frankly, that’s our preference.”
Cheney noted that Liz “has also always treated her sister and her sister’s family with love and respect, exactly as she should have done. . . . Compassion is called for, even when there is disagreement about such a fundamental matter and Liz’s many kindnesses shouldn’t be used to distort her position.”
The former vice president said that he would have nothing further to say on this “difficult” subject.
Liz Cheney’s position notwithstanding, American Principles Fund, a conservative super PAC, has spent $140,000 on ads implying that during her tenure in President George W. Bush’s State Department she did not oppose extending federal benefits to same-sex couples, Politico reported.
Polls show that by a majority of 59 to 41 percent Wyoming residents oppose gay marriage. Nationally, opposition among conservative-leaning Republican voters is as high as 73 percent.
A polls taken at the end of October showed Cheney trailing far behind Enzi.

Prison Minister: Lindsay Lohan Needs Faith-Based Regeneration.


 

Lindsay Lohan
“Liz and Dick” movie star Lindsay Lohan was offered another chance at turning her life around after she was arrested for punching a woman in a New York City nightclub and also charged on the same day with three misdemeanors in California.

Liz and Dick movie star Lindsay Lohan was offered another chance at turning her life around after she was arrested for punching a woman in a New York City nightclub and also charged on the same day with three misdemeanors in California.

Prison minister and author Marty Angelo has reached out to Lohan for a fourth time trying to convince the troubled star to enter and complete a one year faith-based residential treatment program for substance abuse problems.

Angelo has followed Lohan’s various arrests since he was first contacted back in 2006 by Lohan’s father, Michael who asked Angelo to reach out to help his daughter.

Angelo sent her letters and a copy of his autobiography, Once Life Matters: A New Beginning and also contacted the judge and attorneys in charge of Lohan’s DUI case at that time offering to serve any jail, prison, or probation time to which she was sentenced if the former child star would enter and complete a one-year women’s faith based residential treatment program. He made the same offer two other times but Lohan did not accept them.

“The wonderful thing about faith-based programs is they all have proven track records,” Angelo remarked in a recent radio interview. “These programs work and have totally changed thousands of lives for decades. All boost upwards of a 86 percent success rate.”

Angelo firmly believes that as soon as someone places their faith and trust in Jesus Christ, that person begins to change from the inside out because they now have Christ himself living in them.

“It is not about rehabilitation,” Angelo continues, “but Christian regeneration.”

Angelo says he hopes and prays that Lohan will take that step of faith and get serious about changing and accepting God‘s true plan and purpose for her life. Angelo is again willing to serve any jail or prison time a judge will sentence her to if she agrees to his offer.
