Vote Yes on Proposition 8!
I am voting Yes on Proposition 8. That is right. For once, I am excited to vote in California. My presidential vote might not matter, but this one will. This is an important election. So much will be impacted--the economic crisis, the war in Iraq, taxes, insurance. Honestly, if forced to do so, I can handle increased taxes. The repercussions of ending the war early could be devastating, but we would hope the Iraqi people are ready to govern themselves. Times of crisis will recover. However, changing the definition of marriage to include same gender marriage, that will influence the world. It really will.
Elder Ballard, a leader of the LDS church said, "the all-important question of public policy must be: what environment is best for the child and for the rising generation? Traditional marriage provides a solid and well-established social identity to children. It increases the likelihood that they will be able to form a clear gender identity, with sexuality closely linked to both love and procreation. By contrast, the legalization of same-sex marriage likely will erode the social identity, gender development, and moral character of children. "
The Family: A Proclamation to the World says, “We call upon responsible citizens and officers of government everywhere to promote those measures designed to maintain and strengthen the family as the fundamental unit of society.” I'm voting for Proposition 8. Are you?
