Homosexuals Worried About Defeat in Prop 8

Homosexuals in California are worried. They're admitting that they are losing the fight over Proposition 8.

Proposition 8 is on the 2008 California General Election ballot which will eliminate the "rights" of homosexual couples to get married. If passed, the proposition will change the California Constitution to eliminate the right of same-sex couples to marry in California. It would also add a statement to the constitution stating "only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California."

Most people in California don't want homosexual marriage. For that matter, most people in the country don't want it. If California, as liberal a state as it is,sees homosexuals lose this battle, it could have a ripple effect across the country - and gay rights activists know this.

They've posted a cry for help from straights who are sympathetic of "gay rights" They are asking their straight sympathizers to help encourage their straight friends in California to vote no on Prop 8.

Homosexuals try hard to convince the world that they are all decent, kind, family-oriented individuals. Read some of the comments at the end of the article I linked to. Here are a few excerpts (expletives deleted):

i rest my case on the following lines. freedom is what this country stood for until religious &#$%% corrupted it and took control through illusion to dictate what we are supposed to be. if the rest of the world is slowly opening up the doors, then why are the christians and retards from the south still living in single wide trailers beating their wives and preaching jesus in a hateful manner?

we should disclude them because they're not really people.

"we're not gonna play fair if you are an intolerant *&@%$%$"

Such different worldviews. They fear a Christian victory in the election. Yet only Christ can bring them peace and freedom.

Though I am overjoyed at the thought that this Prop might succeed in California, my anger at the vitriol directed at Christians and other non-supporters of homosex marriage is overshadowed by the deep sorrow I feel for these people who have deceived themselves so badly. I'd love to back up about sixty years and go back to when it was beginning to take off and speak out in kindness but firmness to prevent the problems with which we now face. We who believe ourselves to be Christians and Americans standing on principle and tradition MUST be more vocal in defending those principles and traditions and seek to dissuade as many from following the same or similar paths. We have let this nation turn so far to the wrong direction that, like an aircraft carrier, it will be difficult to bring it back around. How much further we drift off course might be too much to do so. All the more reason to hold the nose in the booth this November and vote McCain. Obama, who WILL win if McCain doesn't (no third party possibility exists) will take the rudder and sail us headlong into the moral abyss with what will surely be the worst possible SCOTUS replacements imaginable. How much harder it will be to right the ship then. Oh, to be in a swing state, rather than the home state of the rebrobate Obama, where the left dominates in statewide contests. Illinois is a lock for him but I will still vote for McCain and work to convince others to do the same. God save California and Florida. May He spur the better people of those states to do the right thing. By His Will and in Christ's name I pray.

thanks for your post!

Defining marriage as between one man and one woman is not taking away anyone's rights. The definition simply distinguishes a union that is biologically capable of producing its own children. Whether a married couple has children or not, I feel like this deserves a separate name--even the potential is kind of a miracle.

Actually this definition can be seen as the ultimate expression of equality our society has to offer: it takes one man and one woman. One could see a lesbian union as a marginalization of men, or a homosexual union as a marginalization of women.

Equality is especially important when it comes to raising children. Children deserve/need a father and a mother. Neither parent should be marginalized.

Yes, many children are already growing up in single-parent homes. Prop 8 should be a reminder to everyone that as a society we need to assist and strengthen families as much as possible. Really, as a society we should be most concerned with the success and health of our families.

A most excellent point. Marriage is not taken seriously enough in our culture - and Christians are in many ways as guilty of this as unbelievers. Marriage is a sacred and all important union, not to be taken lightly or flippantly. There should be much prayer and preparation between two people before they actually go through the ceremony and legally and spiritually bind themselves together.

Thanks for stopping by. I'll check out your webpages and encourage my other readers to do likewise.
