#1 Cat detective Agency: Prop 8

27 May

Prop 8 stands…no gay marriage in California.

I’m not going to rant on about how backwards or ethically wrong the decision is…I thought I’d look at some of the reasons that made California vote “YES”…

Children in public schools will have to be taught that same-sex marriage is just as good as traditional marriage.

Right now, 96 percent of California public school districts must teach “respect for marriage and committed relationships” without showing any bias regarding sexual orientation.  Unless Proposition 8 passes, all of those school districts will be required to teach children in grades K-12 that same-sex marriage is equal in every way to traditional marriage.

Churches may have their tax exempt status challenged or revoked

 if they publicly oppose same-sex marriage or refuse to allow same-sex marriage ceremonies in their religious buildings open to the public.

Adoption agencies will be forced to place children with same-sex couples, regardless of an agency’s beliefs.

Adoption agencies that oppose placing children with same-sex couples for religious or other reasons have already been forced to stop providing adoption services in Massachusetts and California.

Religions that sponsor private schools

with married student housing may be required to provide housing for same-sex couples, even if counter to church doctrine, or risk lawsuits over tax exemptions and related benefits.

 
Ministers who preach against same-sex marriages may be sued for hate speech and risk government fines.

It has already happened in Canada and Sweden, countries that have legalized same-sex marriage.

Everyone will pay.

Changing the definition of marriage will generate a flood of lawsuits which will inflict heavy legal costs upon the parties who are sued and upon their business customers–that’s you.

As you can see…all good reasons (!???!?!?!!?!).

 

I’m glad the UK has a more enlightened view as I’m really looking forwards to my daddies wedding!!
