This is one of those times. This particular topic is tough because I have many friends who might be offended by what I say. Proposition 8 is being voted on here in a few weeks, and I want to say why I would vote yes, why my parents are voting yes, and why I am encouraging everyone to vote yes.
I believe that marriage is sacred and is ordained of God.
“Marriage is not primarily a contract between individuals to ratify their affections and provide for mutual obligations. Rather, marriage and family are vital instruments for rearing children and teaching them to become responsible adults.”
“We solemnly proclaim that marriage between a man and a woman is ordained of God and that the family is central to the Creator’s plan for the eternal destiny of His children . . . The family is ordained of God. Marriage between man and woman is essential to His eternal plan. Children are entitled to birth within the bonds of matrimony, and to be reared by a father and a mother who honor marital vows with complete fidelity.”
Prop 8 isn’t a hate amendment, it isn’t a vote for discrimination. It is a moral measure taken to preserve the family unit, which is vital to our Heavenly Father’s plan.
