ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FOR OPPOSING SAME-SEX MARRIAGE
Proposition 8 back in court
It's another battle for marriage in California
-- this time involving the ballot title for Proposition 8, which would overturn homosexual "marriages." California's Attorney
General Jerry Brown has given a biased title and summary to the marriage amendment, apparently trying to defeat it.
the California Marriage Protection Act was circulated for signatures earlier this year, the title given it by Brown was "Limit
on Marriage." Brown also wrote a summary description: "Amends the California Constitution to provide that only marriage between
a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California."
But that was then and this is now. On May 15, the California Supreme
Court invented homosexual "marriages" out of thin air. On June 16, marriage licenses began to be distributed to homosexual
couples. So, on July 3, Attorney General Brown, the state's most powerful Democrat politician and former governor (1975-1983)
"Eliminates Right of Same-Sex Couples to
Marry. Changes California Constitution to eliminate the right of same-sex couples to marry. Provides that only marriage between
a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California."
Jerry Brown, who wants
to be California's next governor (his last stint was before the 1990 term limits law), apparently wants to satisfy homosexual
activists. By using the "bad" word "eliminate" and the good word "right," Brown seems to be doing all he can to try to keep
homosexual "marriages" as role models for children.
the outcome of the court case on the ballot title and summary, your mission and mine remain the same: turn out as
many people as possible to vote YES on Proposition 8 to reserve marriage licenses for a man and a woman in the California
Constitution. Voter turnout strongly passed the first marriage measure on California's ballot (Proposition 22 in 2000); voter turnout can do the same for Proposition 8 to override the California Supreme Court's awful decision.
Also, Yes,.. California schoolchildren will learn about homosexual 'marriages'
When Proposition 8 said in its
ballot argument that, without its passage on the November ballot, California schoolchildren as young as kindergarten would
be indoctrinated to support man-man and woman-woman "marriages," the homosexual activists became livid and said it was a lie.
But the negative effect on little children is true.

Do you want to sit and watch as homosexual activists get cities and counties to officially go
on record opposing Proposition 8, the California Marriage Amendment? Of course not. But that's what will happen if we
just do nothing. In July, both the cities of Los Angeles and Laguna Beach voted to oppose protecting man-woman marriage.
This is a shame, especially since there are many more communities that support real marriage than oppose it.
time to get busy. Please take the Marriage Proclamation, written by Campaign for Children and Families, to your pro-family city councilmember
and your pro-family county supervisor. Ask them to introduce it and pass it to endorse Proposition 8. If you don't know which
city councilmembers or county supervisors are pro-family, ask around. Passing the Marriage Proclamation will put your community
on record for real marriage between a man and a woman, and will rally more voters to vote for Proposition 8.
