Slow the tide, vote YES on 8

I read an article last night that NPR did back in June.  It left me with a sinking feeling.  Someone had mentioned it to me and so I log on and read it.  Kinda funny I think I heard it back in June when it was on air, and had a similar impression at the time.  I am a huge NPR fan.  I am a member and love there programming.  This article was no exception.  A well produced story about the collision of gay rights and religious liberties.  There are actually two stories done within a day of each other.  The one called Gay rights, religious liberties: a three-act story was what I found particular interesting.  Totally worth your time to read.  Basically it talks about how religious groups are losing their religious freedoms to the gay rights movement.  And it is true.  I can’t see all of the way religions are going to be impacted by the gay movement, but impacted they will be.  So ironic when you think why people boarded the May Flower.  I want to be able to worship what and how I want.  I fear how my religious liberties will continue to be impacted over time by the ray rights movement.

The passage of prop 8 will only slow the tide.  I hope slow it significantly.  Slow the tide, vote Yes on 8.

Happily ever after has changed…

One day you will grow up and marry a prince or a princess.  You decide.  Can you fathom a teaching or girl friend asking your daughter, “do you want to live happily ever after with a prince or a princess? ”  It sounds far fetched, and maybe it is in the near future, but will it be in a few years if prop 8 fails.  I found this article to be insightful and disheartening.  About half way down this article dives into different theories on outcomes of legalized same-sex marriage.  The ideas presented in this article are particularly discouraging, because many of them already are happening.  The “coming out” day celebration and first grade class gay wedding field trip already shows how close to reality the speculation is.

Failure to pass prop 8 will effect the entire country.  I will post more on that later.

Strengthen marriage, protect our kids, vote yes to Prop 8.  It matters.
