A shout out to all you Californians

Is this what you want to see??

Lately, I've heard a lot of stories about the proposition 8 in California. After learning more and having time to think about it, I really feel strongly that Marriage redefined would be life redefined, and not for the better. Think of what redefining marriage would do. Universities would have to provide gay housing, more church leaders would get into legal trouble for refusing to marry gay couples (which I personally think is more repressive than not allowing the marriage), our children would be taught about gay marriage from the moment they enter school. In fact, there's a video about a family in Massachusetts who asked the school to at least honor their parental rights by notifying them when they were talking about gay marriages, but the school refused and went so far as to arrest the husband. Here's the link if you want to watch:

I've heard of a church leader from a Christian church in Arizona (where gay marriage has been allowed) who had to stop practicing his religion altogether because he was not allowed to turn away a gay couple who wanted him to marry them.There's also a statement from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that expains why the church is advocating more than usual which is enlightening for anyone to read - member and non-member alike. It's called "The Divine Institution of Marriage" and here's the link for that to:
