Religious Endorsement on Prop 8

The call to endorse same-sex marriage is an attack on religion. Religious leaders from all walks of faith are encouraging members to vote yes on proposition 8.

The California Catholic Conference:
…took a stance on prop 8 by declaring that marriage is “an ancient, yet modern, human institution which pre-exists both Church and government“. Who can really redefine an institution that existed before any other? Their official declaration on proposition 8 is worth reading.

LDS leaders published the following on their website:
“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.” Read the full article here for the LDS church stance on marriage.

Adventists speak out on prop 8
:
“Same sex couples already enjoy legal rights of domestic partnership, etc. We do not need to surrender the definition of “marriage” to vindicate these relationships.” For more reasons to support proposition 8, visit their website.

Official Jewish Orthodox Union Statement:
…Religious institutions and people face charges of bigotry and could be denied government funding and more if same sex marriage becomes the law of the land. Just as we condemn discrimination against the gay community, we ask that the same tolerance be shown towards those with sincerely held religious beliefs…” More from this statement here.

All 4 Presidential and VP Candidates support Prop 8 and Traditional Marriage

During the VP Presidential debate, Americans learned that all 4 candidates support Proposition 8 and Traditional Marriage. Here are portions of the transcript. You can view the transcript in its entirety here.

Sarah: “I will tell Americans straight up that I don’t support defining marriage as anything but between one man and one woman, and I think through nuances we can go round and round about what that actually means. But I’m being as straight up with Americans as I can in my non- support for anything but a traditional definition of marriage.”

IFILL: Let’s try to avoid nuance, Senator. Do you support gay marriage?

BIDEN: No. Barack Obama nor I support redefining from a civil side what constitutes marriage. We do not support that. That is basically the decision to be able to be able to be left to faiths and people who practice their faiths the determination what you call it.

Here is a sign for your car window to publicize that all 4 candidates support traditional marriage.
