Vote YES on Prop 8

October 9, 2008 at 10:42 pm 8 comments

I am writing this blog because I 100% believe in preserving traditional marriage–meaning that marriage is between a man and a woman.  That is the way God designed it and that is that way it needs to remain.  If we do not make sure that this proposition passes our way of life will begin to crumble away and we will see our society fall into extinction.

Why do some people want to destroy the very fiber of our society?  Why do some people want us to keep accepting and accepting values that are not worthy of who we are?  This reminds me of the movie, “Fiddler On The Roof,” where Tevye, the main character is confronted with his oldest daughter in accepting a different way of a marriage proposal.  He wants his daughter to be happy and makes up a dream to tell his wife so that she will also be accepting of this idea.  His second daughter comes to him with also another marriage proposal that is also outside of the way of life as they know it.  He gives his blessing to his daughter and sends her off to be with her fiance.  Finally, his third daughter comes to him and asks his blessing for her marriage and he finally says no.  He feels he cannot bend anymore outside his core belief.  This is the way that we should feel.  No more!  We cannot bend any longer to the ways of the world.  We now need to stand up and be counted as to what we most certainly believe in–eternal marriage between a man and a woman.  As it says in the scriptures, “What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.” (Mark 10:9)

 I urge all who read this to vote YES on Proposition 8.  If you are not currently registered to vote at your current address please register to vote because we need your vote.  The deadline to register is October 20th.

    If we don’t win this fight to pass proposition 8 and other like minded legislation, changes will come like dominoes across the nation. Massachusetts, California, Connecticut….if we’re going to stand up, now is the time. Marriage is the fundamental building block of our society, changes to it’s definition will create ripples of change reaching every corner of our lives over time. This is not a small issue.

    I hope you never ever experience the pain of losing someone in your life because of suicide. I hope you never know the pain of seeing someone so hopeless and so uninspired to continue breathing, that they just didn’t anymore. I hope you always know that you CAN be a great servant of God and God does not want you to judge, that’s his job. I hope you realize that hate bills like prop 8 will affect many teens questioning suicide because they too, want to feel like a normal human being. I pray that you see light in your heart and stop judging others so much. God did not want you to spread hate, but you may never see it that way. Your blog caused me great sadness and it reminded me again for a few minutes why my dear friend George killed himself, because he will never be accepted by the self-titled moral Christian right.

    Prop 8 is not a hate bill it is a bill to assure that marriage is restored to what God designed that is marriage is between a man and a woman. We do not hate anyone. We are christians acting in what we believe is correct and true. I pray that you will open your heart and see that this is right! Thank you for your comments because I do believe that we can share our views even if they are different from ours.

    You sound so sure of the outcome. I’m sure families in Massachusetts were hoping for that same outcome. However, the reality is that their children are being taught about the gay lifestyle. I do not consider that as a good thing that should be taught in schools. There are many other circumlum that needs to be addressed in the schools. I believe that different lifestyles need to be addressed in the home just as sex education. But that is what makes this country strong and true is our right to our opinions. You have yours and I have mind. Thank you for expressing yours.

    I hope God forgives all of you for using his name to commit ungodly acts. Happy voting everyone.

    I know that God will forgive us for all of our sins if we repent. I am so thankful for His son’s atonement that makes that all possible for each of us. It is because of God that I feel so strongly about this proposition. Thank you for your concern. And yes happy voting everyone!

    The idea that our public school administrators are unbiased observers in this election or in our children’s moral education is a farce.

    TODAY in our town, a prop 8 sign that was too close to school property was destroyed by two Conejo Valley Unified administrators. It was caught on camera.

    There’s no way they can say that they are unbiased in this debate. The ferocity and cruelty shows through. This is who runs our schools. This is the face of tolerance. As much as I would like to believe that this is a rarity, 200,000 stolen, defaced, destroyed and vandalized signs proves otherwise.

    It is definitely a double standard. What the school administrators say about it not being an education issue and then using funds from educators to promote same sex marriage is a double standard. You cannot have it both ways you cannot say one thing and then come out and say that this is unfair and biased to those of the gay lifestyle. I do not want my children and grandchildren to be taught about this in school. This needs to be taught in home. I believe teachers are always complaining that they do not have enough time to teach the basics so why waste an educators time with matters of the home.
