    So gay people are fake humans like a fake $5 bill? All humans deserve equal rights under the law.

    Thank you for posting this. I hope that Prop 8 will pass. There was a grass roots movement of parents who kept their kids home from school today to protest the California Teacher’s Association’s contribution of $1.25 million to the No on Prop 8 campaign. I know many teachers who are upset about this also. Thank you Cindy

    Julie Phineas, I think the comparison they’re making is with the marriage terms, not the people.

    This is so cool! I think it’s great that there are other countries and states where marriage has been extended to include homosexual couples so that we can see the effects it has had on these respective places. I think it’s obvious that many concerns expressed in the campaign, should prop 8 fail to pass, are very legitimate as illustrated by the UK.

    thanks for this post.

    Marriage is our culture’s ultimate expression of equality–it takes one man and one woman to create children. Even if a marriage can’t have children or choose not to have children the definition of their relationship expresses this equality.

    One could see a lesbian union as a marginalization of men, or a homosexual union as a marginalization of women.

    I don’t believe government should sanction the marginalization of any gender (or more importantly, parent). And even though some families can’t have children, or choose not to have children, you can’t separate the child-issue from the marriage issue.

    there is a great discussion here:

    Vote no on proposition 8. I’m married – it doesn’t dimish my marriage; it won’t change what is taught is schools; it won’t impact the tax free status of churches (although if they continue to meddle in politics perhaps their tax free statu should be revoked). It does discriminate – it does repress. Surely people have more important things to do than worry about the love lives of others.

    There are two sports, one is called (American) Football, and the other Rugby. These sports co-exist in the world, in this country and even in the towns we live in.

    The Football folks don’t say, “Rugby, you should conform to the way OUR sport is played”. And conversely, Rugby doesn’t say, “Football, you should conform to the way OUR sport is played”. They each happily play their respective games, with no intention of changing the other.

    It depends on where you are, but you may have an advantage and be more popular if you are a fan of Football, than Rugby, and vice-versa.

    Rugby players can, and do, join Football teams, and vice-versa.

    One day a Rugby player showed up at the Football field to play in that day’s game. He trotted onto the field in his Rugby outfit and holding his Rugby ball. “We’re going to play with MY ball because I have civil rights as a person. You can’t make me play by your rules.” he said to the Football teams.

    It’s simple, by opposing Prop. 8, gays are trying to change the Heterosexual’s game.

    Vote YES on 8!

    [...] It still takes a male and female to have a child I believe that marriage should continue to be defined as between a man and a woman and that the primary purpose of that marriage is to raise children.  It has been this way for thousands of years and I don’t believe it should be changed.  It still takes a man and a woman to have a child.  That is how nature created us.  Personally, I see no reason to change the father, mother, child relationship that has been around for so long.  Granted it is not perfect and far too many people do not take it seriously but it is not justification to introduce another marriage arrangement.  * The end of marriage in Scandanavia – gay marriage has added to the problem * What is in a name? * A pair is a pair is a pair  * A Secular Case against gay marriage * Redefining the peanut butter and jelly sandwich * In the beginning, the story retold… * Warning from UK, don’t follow our lead [...]

    Okay, I am not a violent protester. I am not going to swear or throw titles. But the fact that gay rights activists want us to teach that homosexuality is a normal thing in the public school system? THAT I have a BIG problem with. Homosexuality is NOT normal. I don’t care how many gay rights activists call me a bigot, gaybasher, or a hater. Just because a few people deviate from their inherent sexuality doesn’t mean that it should be forced upon everyone else. THAT is unconstitutional. It’s bad enough that gays insist on the lifestyle they do instead of looking at homosexuality as what it is: a mental illness that needs to be treated. Plain & simple.

    You’re right Jake–homosexuality is not normal. Somehow God made me abnormal. I’m among the small percentage of people whose wiring somehow got crossed so that I’m attracted to my own sex. I don’t completely understand it but I definitely didn’t choose to be gay; it’s a physical thing–I had nothing to do with. It is not a mental illness (that’s so 1971). Anyone who associates with gay men and women know that. But my abnormality doesn’t hurt anyone. In fact, it may even make me a better person. I love my nieces and nephews like there is no tomorrow; I pay my taxes and want better schools and education for kids; I worship God and give both time and tithe to my church, I work hard at my job and contribute to the betterment of others (is betterment a word?–it sounds good anyway). I’ve been with my partner for 11 years in a loving relationship and am in a registered domestic partnership. But that’s not a marriage. I hate the idea that my relationship is seen as less than a heterosexual relationship. I know it’s hard to understand. If I wasn’t gay, I would probably think the same as you, Jake, and would have voted for prop 8. But I am gay and would appreciate the opportunity to marry my partner some day. Thanks for reading. Peace.

    The initiative that defines marriage as being between one man and one woman, cannot be done by a mere constitutional amendment. Rather, it must be done by a revision of the entire Constitution and the Legislature would have to be involved.

    The APA information on homosexuality is not scientifically based, it’s politically influenced. They took this position by vote, not by science.

    if all of u think homosexuality is a choice … when did u decide to be st8…

    Mary, the choice is in the action if not in the feeling. No one is a slave to feelings without choice in their actions accept perhaps the addicted.
