In Support of Proposition 102

I just read this very well written article supporting Proposition 8 in California. It was posted on the blog Sue's News, Views, and Muse. Since I am not as talented a writer as Sue, I thought I would simply post a link to hers since Arizona is fighting a similar fight under the title Proposition 102.

A second great blog post is this one on Pike's Pickles, which includes a video of an interview with some Massachusetts parents of elementary school age children and the impact the change of marriage in their state has had on the schools. It is sad and scary to think about.

Finally, there is a brief outlining 8 specific reasons why the definition of marriage should not be changed. The reasons are very compelling and numerous real-life cases are cited with full footnotes. It is a reliable read.

I urge you to read these and contemplate the tremendous impact society (and our families) will witness if the definition of marriage is changed. It is time to step up to the voting booth and make our voices heard.


  1. Thanks for the link, Becky, and for helping us get the word out about Proposition 8 in California. I wasn't even aware that Arizona was in the same situation with Proposition 102. I guess this fight is going to take place in one form or another all over the country. And you're right, we do need to make our voices heard.

  2. I think this is an area where we can't turn our backs and hope that it will work out. In a satellite broadcast with SLC last night we were all individually urged to give 4 hours every week from now until the election.



Comments are much appreciated!
