Our Last Battle But Not Our Last War

November 3, 2008 at 11:21 pm 7 comments

As we stand on the virtual battlefield, we look out and see the vastness of this field.  We feel strength or we feel discouraged but whatever we are feeling we need to feel hopeful.  We have done our best to fight this battle as we fight this war.  We must be proud in what we have put forth in this battle.  We must continue to not let our guard down as this battle is soon ending but the war is far from over.  We must be strong and continue to pray for strength and courage to continue to stand firm in our belief.  We will continue to be tested in our beliefs.  We must be strong so that we can withstand the opposition’s fight.  They are relentless and we must not be faint.  We must rely on the Lord and His ever strength.  We must be do what it takes to be counted upon as one who can take us to the finish line with courage and with honor.  All those who have given time, money, and given up sleep to do the many tasks that have been asked of us in the battle to pass Proposition 8 I commend you for accepting these tasks as part of restoring traditional marriage in this state of California.  May God be with us and go forward with honor.

    Absolutely gender matters! We were male and female before we came to this earth and children need the correct role models of males and females. As God instituted Adam and Eve to multiply and replenish the earth and teach their children correct principles that is what God means–a man and a woman together is necessary to procreate and raise up a righteous generation. We need to enjoy what God has created and know that we do have an important purpose is this whole scheme of things. So hang in there everyone and we will be successful!

    I”m not trying to take away from the wonderful spirit of your post, but this seems to be an appropriate post to share this story: My 8-year-old son was asking what prop 8 was all about and why it needed to pass. In my attempt to explain same sex marriage in terms appropriate at his age-level, I said that some people think it’s okay for 2 women to get married or 2 men to get married. He thought about it for a minute and said, “There is NO way I would want two moms!” LOL! It was so innocent and so cute, but so profound. It is true, children deserve a mom and a dad.

    Thank you for your blog. It has inspired me and uplifted me. It is nice to know that there are others out there who believe the same way I do about this issue.

    Until next time… (which may be soon!)

    Thank you Heather for your comments and thank you for sharing the story regarding your 8-year-old son. There are many of us who believe the same way you do! Stand firm in your beliefs there will be more times ahead when we will be challenged.

    Wendy you are a ignorant moron… Thank you for bringing the US that much closer to the edge of collapse.

    I can only hope someone in government has an ounce of intelligence left to strike down such legislative stupidity. It makes me sick

    I am sorry that you feel that way, Michael. Everyone is entitled to his or her opinion. I am not ignorant but you do have your opinion. Thanks for reading my blog.

    No this is not simply a matter of opinion Wendy. This is a matter of US law. It is a matter of religion and state and how the two are not suppose to mix.

    And people like you are taking the US constitution and judicial precedent and the rights of US citizens and flushing them down the toilet.

    There are many religions. There are many ways to live your life. What gives you the right to say that someone else’s life choices are under your jurisdiction? What gives you the right to say that your beliefs should be the beliefs of the masses?

    I know homosexuals. I know gay couples. There is nothing wrong with them or their lifestyle. They are just as responsible and nice as any straight person. They deserve to marry just as much as a straight couple.

    A marriage license is not a matter of god. I don’t have to be christian or muslim or jewish in order to get a marriage license. All I need is a consenting partner. The idea that government sponsored marriage holds any sort of religious value is simply ridiculous. And that is not a matter of opinion. That is a matter of fact.
