Tired of the lies!

I am so tired of the “No on Prop 8”  lies and manipulations.  I tired of the media’s liberal biased view.    What happened to neutral journalism? You know when just the facts were presented as facts, without all the half truths and biased spins.  This is totally ridiculoius.

FACT: Marriage is between 1man and 1 woman.  The purpose of marriage is to create families. Traditional   marriage is protected because it benefits society.

FACT:Interracial  marriages are between 1 man and 1 woman.  The purpose of  interracial marriage is to create families. Interracial marriage is protected because it benefits society.

FACT:Same sex marriage is between 2 men or  2 women.  These unions can not create children that are genetically unique to the two people involved.

How does same sex marriage benefit society?

How can you compare interracial and same sex marriage?  You can’t, they are not the same.  The gender makeups involved in these relationships are different.

When they started allowing interracial marriages, because they were unconstitutional, paperwork and licenses did not need to be changed because the basic requirements for a marriage license did not change: one man + one woman, not related, over 18, not already married.

It’s very basic.  Please vote YES on prop.8 , restore the definition of marriage.  No one is loosing any rights.  Registered  Domestic Partners have all the same rights and privileges as married spouses under the law (California family code 297.5).

YES on Prop 8

There is a difference

This whole Prop. 8 thing is really bugging me. I’m tired of people thinking that I am prejudice just because I think marriage should only be between a man and a woman. I think if people would take all the emotions out of it, and look at things logically. They would have to agree that gay marriage just doesn’t make any sense. Here is my attempt at an emotionless, non judgmental argument. There apples and oranges. They are both fruits. They both come from trees. For my argument’s sake, they are nutritionally equal. Sometimes they are bitter. Sometimes they are sweet. They have some common uses. You can make juice with them, you can cook with them, and you can eat them raw. If your shopping for fruit, your decision is based on preference. Now let’s suppose oranges feel they are being treated unequally because throughout history apples have been more prevalent (ex. an apple a day keeps the doctor away; if you want to impress your teacher bring them an apple). Now oranges want to be called apples too. Any logical person would have to agree that oranges couldn’t start calling themselves apples. They are oranges and not apples. It would be confusing. If a recipe called for an apple and you used an orange instead, because it was called an apple, it just wouldn’t be the same. So here’s how I translate my little analogy the apples are marriage and the oranges are domestic partnership. They are both committed relationships. In the eyes of state law they are both equal. Some marriages and domestic partnerships are good (the people involved love and care for each other). Some marriages and domestic partnerships are bad (they are abusive or unfaithful). They do have some things in common, two people love each other, and want to share their lives. The biggest most important issue is that domestic partners can not have children, that are biologically half of each partner. Men and women are designed in such a way that you need one of each to create a family. Sometimes things don’t go as smoothly or work together accordingly. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t a plan and that we shouldn’t strive for the ideal.
