October 20, 2004 ( – In an interview with the homosexual activist web-site,, Theresa Heinz-Kerry promised that promoting acceptance of homosexuals would be a top priority for her as the new First Lady, if her husband John F. Kerry were elected US President in November.  Heinz-Kerry spoke with’s senior political correspondent, Chris Bull, Friday. She reiterated the ideology often perpetrated by homosexual activists—that sexual orientation is never chosen and cannot be changed and that homosexual activity is therefore moral: “A lot of people, particularly those of the more fundamentalist view, think of homosexuality as a sex thing rather than a sexuality thing,” she said. “They are really very different. A person doesn’t choose their sexuality. For the other side, there’s a tinge of the suggestion of sin, of the choice of misbehavior, quote-unquote, which is not the case at all.”  Heinz-Kerry tried to deflect criticism away from her husband John, when in the third presidential debate October 13, responding to a question asking if homosexuality was a matter of choice, said, “I think if you were to talk to Dick Cheney’s daughter, who is a lesbian, she would tell you that she’s being who she was, she’s being who she was born as. I think if you talk to anybody, it’s not choice.”  Vice President Cheney and his wife were both indignant that Kerry would use their daughter’s homosexual orientation as a tool to illustrate his point.  “It seemed to me the more newsworthy part of the debate is that the president of the United States said he didn’t know whether homosexuality is a choice, despite the overwhelming evidence that—as you say—it’s not,” Heinz-Kerry argued.
