Isn’t France supose to be the liberal ones

I just returned from my friends home for lunch.  We talked about prop 8.  because I am so compelled on this topic and thought I would share just one of the things we talked about.  I hope it is insightful for you too.

There is a youtube video talking about how France studied out the issue of same-sex marriage and concluded it to BAN same sex marriage.  As well as same-sex couples ability to adopt or use of reproductive methods.  All in the interest of the children.  There is a whole article on research backing up the idea that our children our better off in a home with a father and a mother. Granted people raised by same-sex couples turn out fine, but the research shows what is in children’s best interest.  A blogger Troy also has done a great job on collecting some research.

Is it ironic to anyone else the it is France that came up with this conclusion.  I have a stereo type that puts the French as open minded to all ways of life.  On the more liberal side of social issues.   I guess my stereo type is wrong.

Once again I remind you to vote yes to Prop 8.  Tell your friends.  Get the word out.  It makes a differance for us all–not just Californian’s but all of america.

Strengthened traditional marriage

I think this is such a powerful statement that I have to put it on my blog.

Marriage needs to be strengthened, not redefined.  Which version of society do you believe?  Which do you want?  Both versions can’t live together.  One version must dominate. This November, we are being asked to choose.  Would you like a crystal ball?  Massachusetts is on the front lines fighting in the culture war.  If prop 8 fails, their fight will be our fight.

Hopefully we do not follow in Massachusetts footsteps.  Vote Yes to Prop 8.  Make a stand!!  Strengthen traditional marriage.

My amazing gay cousin

A little more then a year a go my cousin went north to get married to his partner, seeing he couldn’t do the deed here.   He is an exceptional individual.  A supportive sibling, cousin, uncle, son…wonderful person.  The marriage that took place in Canada symbolizes that my cousin and partner are committed to each other and want to be together for the rest of their lives.  This is admirably enough.  But civil unions would do the same, and the additional consequences to redefining marriage are many and alarming.  Traditional marriage is a symbol.  As much as I love my cousin, I don’t want what marriage represents historically to change.

Vote yes to 8
