Not a civil rights issue

I am so appalled and tired of hearing that if we as a society do not accept gay marriage as normal, we are somehow racist.

People are so uneducated on this issue, especially our young voters, and I encourage parents to make sure their younger grown children know the facts before going to the polls. Here we go:

Fact: 4 1/2 million Californians, or 61.4 percent, voted “yes” on Prop. 22 in 2000 to keep marriage between a man and woman.

Fact: Four activist judges overruled the people and democracy.

Fact: Gay couples already have EVERY given benefit and RIGHT as heterosexual couples have under California State law AB205.

Fact: First Amendment rights are, have been, and will continue to be overruled by gay rights under the “state law” if Prop. 8 does not pass.

Fact: Education Code 51890 allows teachers to teach on marriage starting as young as kindergarten. They will be required to teach on “all lifestyles,” meaning gay marriage, so as not to discriminate and break the law.

Fact: Under Education Code 51933, teachers have the right to teach on sexuality and will have to include all lifestyles, meaning gay sexual orientation.

Fact: Teachers are not required to inform parents when these subjects are being taught.

Fact: The dictionary definition of marriage reads as follows: “The state of being married, or the relationship between a man and a woman, husband and wife.”

Fact: Interracial marriage follows the definition of marriage, between a man and a woman; therefore, it is not the same fight as gay activists would like you to think.

Fact: A person can change his or her sexual orientation/preference at any time. Being gay is a choice; however, a person cannot change the color of his or her skin. This is not a civil rights issue.

Fact: The gay activists are pushing their bedroom preferences on the rest of society.

Fact: Businesses, churches, and parents will no longer have the right to refuse to do business with gay couples based on their religious beliefs because, it will be breaking the state law.

Fact: Gay rights are not being taken away; heterosexuals choices and rights are.

Gay couples work, play, travel, buy homes, attend church, go to school, adopt children, receive health benefits, insurance, and live their lives with the same rights as heterosexuals.

There is no discrimination.

It is time to stop being ignorant and indifferent and protect the sanctity of marriage and protect our First Amendment rights. Don’t be fooled or feel the need to apologize.

Vote yes on Prop. 8.
