Yes on 8

From The Family: A Proclamation to the World

"The family is ordained of God. Marriage between man and woman is essential to His eternal plan. Children are entitled to birth within the bonds of matrimony, and to be reared by a father and a mother who honor marital vows with complete fidelity. Happiness in family life is most likely to be achieved when founded upon the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ. Successful marriages and families are established and maintained on principles of faith, prayer, repentance, forgiveness, respect, love, compassion, work, and wholesome recreational activities. By divine design, fathers are to preside over their families in love and righteousness and are responsible to provide the necessities of life and protection for their families. Mothers are primarily responsible for the nurture of their children. In these sacred responsibilities, fathers and mothers are obligated to help one another as equal partners."

We've been hearing lots about Prop 8 the past few months, especially w/ Jordan's parents living in the Bay Area of California. Kathie sent me this which made me laugh --

Since we're out here visiting, we got to go and help by holding "Yes on 8" signs w/ a big group on Saturday and smaller groups this morning and afternoon.  Tomorrow we'll do a bit more get out the vote things too -- it's great to be able to do something to help. And tomorrow we'll see what happens...
