As we observe Mother’s Day this Sunday, each of us has an opportunity to be thankful for the gift of life, and to recognize and honor women who selflessly choose to nurture children. We are all blessed by that unique relationship between mother and child, for as the saying goes: 

No gift to your mother can ever equal her gift to you – life.

The uniquely important role of mothers – arguably the most important job in the world – is worthy of praise and heartfelt appreciation. May you have a joyous weekend with your family!

    Thank God our mothers and sisters won’t have to worry anymore about which hospitals they would need to go to in an emergency to get the proper care they need if they are attacked.

    God has answered the prayers of women and are on their side!

    It is telling how the one response to this post is an attack on a seemingly self-evident concept (that we should be thankful for our mothers and to our mothers for life itself) with a reference to ending life. One wishes that this were an anomalous sentiment, but for the morbid reality.

    In this light, here’s (link) an honest portrayal of stark clarity for our leftist friends…

    So, given the feelings stated about motherhood here, I’m wondering if anyone has a response to Stephen Bennett’s putrid attack on the Cheney/Poe family. I realize you don’t accept their relationship and/or the fact they are now raising a child, but Bennett’s words are a condemnation of all non-biological parents and certainly I would think an organization concerned with family issues would be concerned.

    While I can understand how Stephen Bennett’s position, advocating for the traditional family and the protection of children from the homosexual lifestyle, might irritate the SSM crowd … all he really said in essence was that children ought to have a mother and father. Yes, how radical! What was it that irritated you the most? Was it this:

    Mary Cheney and Heather Poe have deliberately denied the Vice President’s grandson one of the most basic human rights of all: the right to a Daddy and a Mommy.

    In fact, these remarks (from the 05/30/07 press release by The Parenting Group) were further clarified in a message to supporters at TPG’s web site, to underscore that he was specifically denouncing parenting by same-sex couples, and nothing else:

    Every child deserves a Daddy and Mommy. We understand, sometimes through death or divorce, that unit is broken – and parents do the best they could to raise and nurture their child or children.


    We praise and thank God for ALL FAMILIES with a father and a mother – who have chosen to raise children as their own – through natural relations, adoption, or other means.

    As the calendar slips past Mother’s Day, when my original article was posted, and closer to Father’s Day, one has to wonder … with each passing year, who will little Samuel David Cheney celebrate on Father’s Day? Or will it simply be a cruel reminder of how he was deprived of his natural right to a Daddy, by the selfishness of Mary and Heather?

    That last paragraph is one of the most pathetic things I have ever read on this blog. The true heart of the “family” movement shines through. It’s not about the preciousness of a new child, all that matters to you is that the family structure that you consider appropriate be followed. Had Mary and Heather not been so “selfish” would he even have been born? Had she miscarried would that have made you happy? Why don’t you send him a card every Father’s day reminding him that he is deprived, would that make your “god” happy? Honestly, the more I read from you folks the more I am convinced you are a disturbed and dangerous people, a threat to life and freedom of all humanity.
