WASHINGTON, Apr 23, 2001 ( – Lynne Cheney, the wife of Vice-President Dick Cheney, has spoken out in favour of President Bush’s decision to install practicing homosexual Scott Evertz as head of the White House office in charge of AIDS policy. In an interview with The Telegraph, Mrs Cheney, one of whose daughters, Mary, is a lesbian, said that although marriage and the family are “very good things, I also think that a person who is gay should have every opportunity”. “My personal feeling is that the President is to be admired for appointing people who are qualified and not focusing on what group they belong to,” she said.  Evertz, who supports the controversial needle-exchange program, is intimately tied to the homosexual lobby within the Republican party known as the “Log Cabin Republicans”. Evertz is a self-avowed practicing homosexual boasting of a homosexual partner for the past seven years. Moreover, Evertz claims to be a Catholic and scandalously attempts to assert the Church supports him in the use of condoms as the solution to the AIDS epidemic.  For more on Evertz from LifeSite see:
