Mary Cheney vs. Liz Cheney

It’s gotta be tough when your sibling seems to waffle between stances. Liz appears to be okay with gay marriage on a personal level, but opposes it on a political level to stay on the good side of her constituents.

Mary Cheney, the openly gay daughter of former vice president Dick Cheney and younger sister of Wyoming U.S. Senate candidate Liz Cheney (R), said Sunday that her sister is on the “wrong side of history” by opposing same-sex marriage.

Earlier Sunday, Liz Cheney appeared on “Fox News Sunday” and was asked to clarify her position on gay marriage.

“I don’t believe we ought to discriminate against people because of their sexual orientation. If people are in a same-sex relationship and they want their partner to be able to have health benefits or be designated as a beneficiary in your life insurance, there’s no reason we shouldn’t do that,” Cheney said.
