To fight a good fight

Wow, it is done.  I am just in relieved it is over.

I think prop 8 brought out the best in many people, and the worst in others.  People stood up for what they believed on both sides, exercised their freedom of speech.  I think both sides gave all they could.  I hope many come away better educated about the gay community and their side of things.  There are many wonderful same-sex couples out there doing good things in society.  Hopefully people also gained a better understanding why the traditional family is important and why people fought so hard to preserve marriage between one man and one woman.

It was a very emotional ridden debate.   It still is; what will happen to those same-sex couples who got married over the past few months?  Who knows.  Those four judges should take some of the responsibility for the mess they have created.

There will be other states and other battels as the gay rights movement fights to gain more acceptance in society.  At least today traditional marriage has won.  Thanks to all who have commented on this blog over the last month.  Regardless of which side you sat on, your words have made this a stronger tool.

  1. I’m glad you believe in separate but equal. It’s worked so well in the past.

    Thank you so much for all of your hardwork and effort into helping prop 8 pass. It took everyone to win this fight. It’s not over, but this is a huge victory.

    Until next time… (which looks like it may be soon!)

  3. I find it wonderful that other faiths have stood with the LDS church and not let them take the flak alone.

    Los Angeles interfaith leaders voiced their support for the LDS church this afternoon, saying: “The peaceful faiths, families, educators, activists, and community servants who make up the protect Marriage Coalition are saddened to hear of the continued targeted attacks on the Mormon people during and after the conclusion of this fair and certified election. Like many churches, the family is the anchor of the LDS faith and it is no surprise that its members in California joined other faiths in giving everything they had to Proposition 8.“

    It’s one of the more amazing things of this election, that so many faiths were able to build bridges and find common ground to stand on.
