here is the proposition:
Proposition 8 is an initiative measure on the 2008 California General Election ballot titled Eliminates Right of Same-Sex Couples to Marry. If
passed, the proposition would "change the California Constitution to eliminate the right of same-sex couples to marry in California." A new
section would be added stating "only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California."
I know why certain people are voting for it. Marriage was created as a way to recognize the union of a man and a woman, who will create children and
stabilize the future of mankind. Gays cannot produce children, and even if they do adopt, studies show that children thrive in the environment of a
mother and a father....rather than two mommies or daddies....These people feel that for the betterment of mankind, we need to recognize and protect
this union as the only true way to continue thriving and evolving as humans. Some of these people fear that the youth could be corrupt by
society..they feel that being gay is not natural, not a choice, so lets protect our children from having to be exposed.
On the same note the bible does say that same sex encounters are a sin. Lets face it we are all sinners in one way or another. Unless you are directly
affecting another person, or life of other people in a harmful way, then one sin is no worse than another. That is where I find the vote to be
harmful. When its a faith based decision. You cannot make laws against another person because you think that the lifestyle is wrong based on sin.
Sarah Palin's daughter is having a child out of wedlock. That is a sin. Should we now make a law that forces her to get married to that boy to
absolve her from that sin? Guess it doesnt really matter because she had sex out of wedlock, which is a sin that cannot change..... Its a slippery
slope that doesn't end. The faith based argument does not work here.
Finally, and the most dangerous is the fact that people are going to vote for the prop because they hate fags. They wish them all dead, and will do
anything to keep them down. Fortunately I think that you are not this type so I wont even spend any time on it........
So then we have the two reasons that some would vote for prop 8, and I think that the latter can be seen as more of an act of ignorance as to the
logic of such a vote. The first to me would be more difficult to argue against because the burden of proof lies within the scientific ability to prove
that being gay is or is not a naturally occurring event. That is purely based on opinion.
