I do think this is an important issue. It took 4 years for the Supreme Court to rule in favor of gays finally being allowed to marry.
This is what the other side is saying:http://www.protectmarriage.com/
Proposition 8 is simple and straightforward. It contains the same 14 words that were previously approved in 2000 by over 61% of California voters: “Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.”
Because four activist judges in San Francisco wrongly overturned the people’s vote, we need to pass this measure as a constitutional amendment to restore the definition of marriage as between a man and a woman.
Voting YES on Proposition 8 does 3 simple things:
* It restores the definition of marriage to what the vast majority of California voters already approved and what Californians agree should be supported, not undermined.
* It overturns the outrageous decision of four activist Supreme Court judges who ignored the will of the people.
* It protects our children from being taught in public schools that “same-sex marriage” is the same as traditional marriage.
(I find it interesting that the majority of judges they are speaking about were primarily GOP.)
