A pro-family activist who works to expose the truth about homosexuality is praising Wyoming Senate candidate Liz Cheney for publically disagreeing with her lesbian sister's lifestyle.

"The homosexual activists are trying to say because you have a sister who is practicing homosexuality you have to be pro-homosexual," says Peter LaBarbera, founder and president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality.

Cheney told "Fox News Sunday" she disagrees with her lesbian sister, Mary Cheney, on the issue of same-sex marriage.

Both sisters are the daughters of Dick Cheney, the former Vice President. Liz Cheney is challenging incumbent Wyoming Republican Sen. Mike Enzi and wants to win over conservatives in the GOP primary next August.

LaBarbera says Cheney's pro-family stance is a far better example than Ohio Sen. Rob Portman, who caved on same-sex marriage when it was revealed that his son, Will, is homosexual.

"The Portman phenomenon of going pro-gay because you have a son who is homosexual, or you know somebody's who gay – that's a recipe for disaster and the crumbling of the Republican Party," says LaBarbera.

LaBarbera, PeterLaBarbera suggests more politicians need to be bold like Liz Cheney.

"We who have God and truth on our side act like we're somehow wrong," he says. "Meanwhile, the forces of evil, those who are fighting for a sin movement act, like they have truth on their side. Shame on us for not behaving like we have truth on our side."

LaBarbera adds that Liz Cheney is also going against her father, who says he supports same-sex marriage in states that sanction it.
