Proposition 8…Not a California Resident? How you can help!

October 27, 2008

The California battle over same sex marriage will eventually impact the rest of the America…for good or for bad!  The remainder of the country is watching to see what will happen here.  If we lose, it will be the first time Americans have voted to legalize same-sex marriage – only courts have ruled in favor of same sex marriages to this point.  This is a precedent setting proposition. 

What can you do to help?  I thought you would never ask!

First, visit the links in this weblog.  Give high ratings to the videos you see, if you feel that they deserve them.  Write comments where applicable.  These actions will help content consistent with our cause rise to the top of Internet search engines – like Google.  This means that interested voters are more likely to be educated on the subject, rather than hear the “civil rights” propaganda of the adversary.

Second,  make a monetary contribution.  Unfortunately, the best way to educate and win over voters is through television advertising.  This costs money!  The adversary is dedicated to their cause and have supported it with large contributions- the California Teachers Association has donated $1.25M to the No on Proposition 8 campaign, alone.  We can overcome these large contributions with our numbers.  Donate what you can at https://www.icontribute.us/protectmarriage/initiative/truth-web/One of our most fervent supporters has agreed to match, dollar for dollar, whatever you and I can donate, up to a total of $1 million – every dollar you donate is worth $2 to the cause.

Finally, pray for the cause.  The Lord is on our side, but we must ask for His help!

Thank you for all that you do.

Prop 8…The Truth About Education in Public Schools

October 25, 2008

The recent focus of the campaign against Proposition 8 has been to discredit those warning that the education of our children is at stake.  Recent television and radio advertisements have said that it will “never happen in California.”  They have even gone as far as to accuse the YES on Proposition 8 campaign of lying.  Recent events show otherwise. 

The truth is that there are educators – gay and hetrosexual – so anxious to teach your children about alternate lifestyles that they cannot help themselves, even while the battle over Proposition 8 wieghs in the balance.  There have been two reported incidents of young children being educated about same-sex marriages in the few weeks since the debate errupted, including a 1st Grade Class taken on a field trip to a lesbian marriage.    The really disturbing part is that the educators and supervisors felt no need to warn parents of what was coming, nor do they show remorse for their actions.  Descriptions of the incidents, and websites – so you can see for yourself – are included below.

Earlier this month a San Francisco First Grade Class was taken on a “field trip” to the lesbian marriage of their teacher.  The marriage was presided over by the Mayor of San Francisco.  The school director has defended the trip as an opportunity for students to take part in the historical event.  Don’t take my word for it, see for yourself.  The follwoing link is a debate about whether the school was wrong to take the children to the wedding – listen closely to the arguments, we will be hearing alot more of this if Proposition 8 fails.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UpRVjxzLoLs

Today in Hayward, California, the Faith Ringgold School of Art and science (a K-8 public school), is  celebrating “Coming Out Day.”  The parents of these children were NOT informed!  Five-year-olds are being taught to be an “ally” to homosexuality.  Later this week they will discuss “families” with posters being placedaround the halls that depict homosexual families.  More controversial discussions can be expected through next week, as the elementary school continues to celebrate Gay and Lesbian History Month.  On
November 20, the school will host TransAction Gender-Bender Read-Aloud, where students will hear adapted tales such as “Jane and the Beanstalk.”  http://www.worldnetdaily.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=78829

It is no longer a question of whether or not it will happen.  It IS happening!  Protect your children.  Vote YES on Proposition 8!


Other Bloggers in Support of Proposition 8

October 23, 2008

I am discovering that their are many other (and better) blogs out there to educate voters on the issues associated with Proposition 8.  The bloggers who host and visit these sites are from all walks of life; they represent both sexes, virtually all religous beliefs, and many different lifestyles.  Some are in favor of Proposition 8 for reasons similar to mine – others are not.  All agree that we should Vote YES on Proposition 8 to protect our future.

This following blog discusses and links to an article from a gay talk show host.  He is for Proposition 8.  This a very intersting discussion about why Proposition 8 is not about giving additional rights to same-sex couples.  What does this gay talk show host think that it is really about?  Go to this blog to see.  http://www.championsofmarriage.blogspot.com/

Think that the push for Proposition 8 is driven by the LDS church, as many have attempted to portray?  Not true!  This blog will prove it to you.  http://hedgehogcentral.blogspot.com/

Welcome all.  Please feel free to leave a comment as you pass thru!
