Family values

You may remember from the November elections that Alan Keyes criticized Dick Cheney’s daughter, saying:

“If we embrace homosexuality as a proper basis for marriage, we are saying that it’s possible to have a marriage state that in principal excludes procreation and is based simply on the premise of selfish hedonism.”

Keyes later said that if he had a lesbian daughter, he would love her, but would have to tell her she was sinning.

Well, it turned out that Keyes did have a lesbian daughter, his daughter Maya, who had put off going to college in order to work for his re-election campaign.

Unfortunately for Maya, as of 2005 her father no longer needs her to appear smiling in publicity photos—so last month he fired her, kicked her out of the apartment she was living in (that he owns), and apparently let her know that she wasn’t welcome in the family home either.

And now she’s getting e-mail from right wing nuts telling her she deserves it.
