    I’ve never understood why it matters so much to the anti-gay marriage people… how does it hurt or affect their world if 2 guys get married? Treat it like a child doing something shocking to get attention, ignore it, don’t get all riled up, and then it won’t be a big deal.

    Sorry for the mini-rant! Very cool, great looking blog, and good luck with nanonwrimo…

    Thanks for visiting my blog! It’s kinda still under construction so, not yet completed. :)

    Well, I can only say this from a Catholic (Christian?) person’s standpoint (I don’t know about the others, they may have other reasons), but marriage is one of the seven sacraments that binds a man and a woman as an official couple to raise their own family and populate. It’s hard to explain (I’m not a “hardcore” religious person but this is just from what I know), but marriage, for many centuries, had always been a sacred and legal union between a man and a woman. And from the Catholic standpoint, marriage is (or should be?) infinite, meaning divorce is unacceptable. Of course, that was how it was back then.

    On the other points, people who are in favor of Prop #8 are also afraid that same-sex marriage may also be taught and promoted to schools; they also felt that the court’s decision on making same-sex marriage legal had no consent from the general population of California and that the decision was more enforced rather than being voted on by the majority. And for the religious orders and sects there will be a lot of penalties issued by the government (state government that is) to them if they do not accept same-sex marriages to be conducted in to their churches or temples using their traditional rites of marriage.

    I can see from both sides and quite frankly there is a loss on both sides and there wouldn’t be “equality”, per se. The “Yes” vote would only make the supporters seem prejudiced, however the “No” vote would also make the supporters prejudiced towards those who believed the fundamental, traditional meaning of marriage (which in turn, targeting people who belong to a certain religion or by personal values or values that they grew up with). This is why I am undecided with this particular proposition and decided not to vote on this one and let the State decide.
