Pray for the Passage of Prop 8 In California

Coming soon to a state near you is the redefining of marriage, that is if many of those in power have their way. It is often easy to see things that happen in notoriously liberal states such as Massachusetts, California and now Connecticut but this is just the start to the agenda of those that want to redefine morals in this country.

In the last election California voted to define marriage as only between a male and female. Surprisingly California garnered 61% of the vote which for California my be considered a landslide. But the judges decide they knew better, sound familiar, and overturned this vote as unconstitutional and made homosexual marriage legal. Due to this, Prop. 8 gathered enough signatures to be placed on the ballot for this election to make a state constitutional amendment to define marriage. In an effort to at least thwart voters Jerry Brown used his state given power to reword the ballot measure, Jerry Brown Tries to Sink California Marriage Amendment, to try and reduce the votes on this proposition thus abusing his power, but what is new.

After new ads by those seeking passage of Prop. 8 came out that stressed that if this proposition is not passed schools will then be able to promote and teach on gay marriage the other side said these claims were lies. Well are they? I put a link to a clip, Vote Yes on Proposition 8, that shows the extent schools went in Massachusetts because the state claimed same sex marriage was legal and moral. But already in California we are seeing the effects of the legalization of same sex marriage. Just recently a teacher in San Francisco took her first graders to observe her marriage to her same sex partner on school time, First Graders Taken to San Francisco City Hall For Gay Wedding. This should be seen as obvious indoctrination as I am sure this class has not been taken to a traditional marriage ceremony or for that matter ceremonies of Hindu, Buddhist or any other religions marriage ceremonies. I am sure that if the class was taken out to a traditional marriage ceremony in a Christian Church the City of San Francisco and those that are promoting the immoral behavior of same sex marriage would be in an uproar. So lets not believe this is about tolerance it is about the modification of morality.

So if you live in California whatever you do get out and vote yes on Proposition 8. If you live in another state make sure you pray for passage of this proposition because if it does not pass expect the same in your state soon. Once precedent is set it begins to move quickly.

Defining marriage as between one man and one woman is not taking away anyone's rights. The definition simply distinguishes a union that is biologically capable of producing its own children. Whether a married couple has children or not, I feel like this deserves a separate name--even the potential is kind of a miracle.

Actually this definition can be seen as the ultimate expression of equality our society has to offer: it takes one man and one woman. One could see a lesbian union as a marginalization of men, or a homosexual union as a marginalization of women.

Equality is especially important when it comes to raising children. Children deserve/need a father and a mother. Neither parent should be marginalized.

Yes, many children are already growing up in single-parent homes. Prop 8 should be a reminder to everyone that as a society we need to assist and strengthen families as much as possible. Really, as a society we should be most concerned with the success and health of our families.
