A Post from "Make My Vote Count"

Heather from the "Make My Vote Count" blog has a trenchant post about the same-gender marriage agenda. It was so good I decided to quote it here. The blog is available in the links list on this page. The URL for this specific post is:

I came across this article on a blog I was visiting. I thought his argument was very well stated. It comes from the point of view of a gay talk show host, who addresses the very issues that those against prop 8 bring up. I have put a couple of paragraphs in this post that I want to make sure everyone from both sides read.

Gay Talk Show Host Opposes Gay Marriage
Al Rantel

"While I certainly do not think people should be judged by who they choose to love or how they choose to live their lives, the cultural liberals in America are after more than that. They want to force others to accept their social view, and declare all those who might have an objection to their social agenda to be bigots, racists, and homophobes to be scorned and forced into silence."

"And so we have come to yet another chapter in the story of those who would portray themselves as victims in need of another sanction from the state. This time the price of social acceptance of gays is the redefinition of an institution that is thousands of years old and a cornerstone of society. Does that really seem like a wise and prudent choice for America to make at the wish of a handful of judges, and at the behest of those whose real goals are more political than anything else?"


Need I say more? There it is, in black and white, from a gay person's perspective. Read my post about the minority ruling. Allowing gays to marry isn't even something that all gay people want. And for those against prop 8, it's not about "marriage". It's about social acceptance.

I strongly encourage you to read the entire article.

We're gaining momentum. The backlash against the gay community has begun. Let's make the most of it. See the poll results from this one survey in LA. http://www.bizjournals.com/losangeles/stories/2008/10/13/daily35.html

Thanks for the comment,A., but I think you mischaracterize the position we hold in support of Prop 8. The issue is not "against the gay community," it is FOR the family and the traditional values that same-gender marriage attacks.

yay andy! It really hurts me when i hear people say "what do you have against gay people" or "stop the hatred" because that is not what Prop 8 is about AT ALL! I am a very tolerant person. This is about my family. This is about the educational system that my children will soon be entering.
Yay prop 8. a. I do think your doing great stuff though. I will be visiting that link you sent.
Thanks!
