I have officially voted! Yay! So I just wanted everyone to know where I stand on Proposition 8, which would change the California Constitution to eliminate the right of same-sex couples to marry and that only a marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California. I have indeed voted YES on this Prop. I have nothing against those who choose to lead the same-sex lifestyle and I do have friends who choose to live this way, but it is important to me that I live in a state that shares my values and standards regarding marriage. I just learned recently of an incident where a man was arrested in Massachussetts for wanting to know ahead of time what his child was to be learning in school. This child brought home a book called "Diversity" which sounds like a book about the different ethnicities right? Wrong. This book promoted homosexuality and that it was ok to be heterosexual or homosexual if you choose. This child was in Elementary School! When his parents found the book, they went to the school and asked that the school inform them of what they are teaching their child so that the parents can choose whether to allow the child to go to school that day or not. Instead of talking things out and reasoning with the parents, they threw the father in jail. That is terrible! I do not want to have to worry about going through that same situation in California when I have kids the same age as this child. I feel that it is my right as a future parent, to be able to teach my children what values and standards they should uphold. It is the same thing as teaching your children about religion. Public schools are not allowed to teach religion, so whay should they be allowed to teach about homosexuality? The fact is, they shouldn't. And that is why we need to vote Yes on Prop 8 so we do not have to worry about what reprocussions may come in the future.
On November 3rd, the member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is asking the nation to fast for Prop 8 at 10:00 am for 24 hours. So I ask everyone who reads this and is willing, to please fast for this Proposition and pray that it gets passed in California so that we may sent the standards for other state who are still allowing same-sex marriage. Thank you everyone! I love you all!! :)
