For my children and others—Vote Yes to Prop 8

While I believe some people are naturally attracted to others of the same gender, I hold to a traditional value that you shouldn’t have sex outside of marriage and that marriage should be between a man and a woman. I have lived up to this standard personally and I plan on teaching this value to my children. My personal code of conduct really is not the trend society teaches, and so teaching my children my value system will be an uphill battle. I will have to combat the sex education they receive in school and the peer influence as well. But if Prop 8 doesn’t pass, then homosexuality may be brought up as early as kindergarten. As hard to imagine as it is, this is true.

“Children in public schools will have to be taught that same-sex marriage is just as good as traditional marriage. The California Education Code (§51890) already requires that health education classes instruct children about marriage. Therefore, unless Proposition 8 passes, children will be taught that marriage is a relation between any two adults regardless of gender.”

We really don’t know all the ramifications that will come as a result of this ruling. Many people think by voting no to prop 8 they are just letting a gay or lesbian couple have the label of marriage. But they don’t think about all the things that this will impact. And for that matter, I don’t think we know. Hopefully we just won’t have to ever find out.

OK that is enough for today. Please vote Yes to Proposition 8 and spread the word on why!!
