The Family Sign



Tuesday is the big day. The Presidential election. But here in California Prop 8 is the true race to be won. Protect Marriage. Andrew notices every yes for prop 8 sign as we're driving. They are all over the place. He calls them "the family" signs. He gets excited when he sees them.
We've been busy since August campaigning for this. We've walked the neighborhoods knocking on doors and leaving fliers{okay, that was John} made lots of calls, making more calls on Tuesday, posted yard signs in the front yard, placed bumper stickers on our cars, and attending a road rally on Tuesday morning.
Here's what fired me up: California voters passed Proposition 22 in 2000 by more than 61%, saying that a marriage in California is between a man and a woman. Earlier this year, four activist judges based in San Francisco wrongly overturned the people's vote, legalizing same-sex marriage.

The Consequences:The Supreme Court’s decision to legalize same-sex marriage did not just overturn the will of California voters; it also redefined marriage for the rest of society, without ever asking the people themselves to accept this decision. This decision has far-reaching consequences. For example, because public schools are already required to teach the role of marriage in society as part of the curriculum, schools will now be required to teach students that gay marriage is the same as traditional marriage, starting with kindergartners. By saying that a marriage is between “any two persons” rather than between a man and a woman, the Court decision has opened the door to any kind of “marriage.” This undermines the value of marriage altogether at a time when we should be restoring marriage, not undermining it.
The Solution: Vote YES on Proposition 8 to overturn the outrageous Supreme Court decision and restore the definition of marriage that was approved by over 61% of voters. Proposition 8 is NOT an attack on gay couples and does not take away the rights that same-sex couples already have under California’s domestic partner law. California law already grants domestic partners all the rights that a state can grant to a married couple. Gays have a right to their private lives, but not to change the definition of marriage for everyone else.Passing Proposition 8 protects our children and places into the Constitution the simple definition that a marriage is between a man and a woman.
Be American! Vote! And send a message to those judges. Vote yes on prop 8.

I was just discussing this very thing with my family yesterday afternoon. It's a bit scarry, the things that can happen if we don't exercise our right to vote and let our voices be heard. I hope everyone votes on Tuesday. Thanks, Nola for the info.
