I have noticed that advocates for the no side revert increasingly to statements like....
- "Other people's marriages don't affect you. Live and let live."
- "Proposition 8 has nothing to do with what children will be taught in schools"
- "It won't hurt your church."
- Kids are being taught about gay marriage in school in Massachusetts and California
- In 2004, Justices of the Peace in Massachusetts were fired for refusing to perform gay marriages on moral or religious grounds
- The United Methodist Church had tax-free status revoked for refusing to let a same-sex couple use its property for a ceremony
- Boston Catholic Charities was given a choice: abandon your morals or shut your doors. It shut down after placing children in homes for over 100 years.
- Ake Green, a Pentecostal Pastor in Sweden was tried, convicted, and sent to prison for a month for preaching against homosexuality
- In Canada, pastor Stephen Boisson was fined $7000 and ordered to remain silent from the pulpit for writing a letter criticizing the gay agenda to the newspaper
Let's examine, on the other hand, what would happen if Prop 8 passes. The definition of marriage is reaffirmed and ... that's it. Nothing else. Nobody loses any rights. Nobody gains any additional rights. Everybody already has equal rights.
Please, my fellow Californians, preserve rights for everyone by voting YES on 8!
