Civilization at Stake

Those supporting gay marriages in California have a new ally in Attorney General Jerry Brown.

The State Ballot initiative entitled Proposition 8 has a title change from “Limit on Marriage-- Constitutional Amendment” to “Eliminates Right of Same-sex Couples to Marry.”

The original statement recognized that only a union of man and woman would be legal. The new wording emphasizes that changes eliminate “rights of same sex couples to marry.”

How many people will read that and say: “I don’t want any of our rights eliminated?” And spport the ban.

It’s going to be tough to repeat what Californians voted for overwhelming just a couple years ago:” Marriage in California is between a man and a woman.”

God help us to uphold marriage as between one man and one woman!

The opposite is not a matter of fairness, but a matter of human civilization.
