Why I voted 'yes' on Proposition 8

I have read the editorials on yes versus no on Proposition 8 because marriage can only be defined by the creator of marriage ­- God. I voted yes on 8 because God said that marriage is between a man and a woman.

I cannot go against God's law.

Going against God's law would be equivalent saying to a police officer, "Yes, I saw the speed limit sign but, I decided to speed instead. The law doesn't really matter."

The majority have already voted to not allow same-sex marriages three times in our state so this fight legally has to stop.

Same-sex couples already have rights and laws set in place for them to be seen as a couple.

Yes, I am going to observe God's law and the government law as well. It is not that I do not love the people in same-sex couples, it is the sin that is wrong.

God makes it quite clear that same-sex couples who consider themselves spouses is a sin. I can not ignore that fact.

In addition, I will get involved in politics. I have strong beliefs and opinions that I will not ignore. So, saying that churches should have tax exemption rights taken away is like saying I should be taxed double because I AM a Christian or any other religion that believes the same way or differently than I do.

The "church" is not just a building, it is the people that love God with all their heart.

There is no separation of church and state. You will never find it in the Constitution or in its amendments.

So should I as a Christian be taxed double because of my strong beliefs? Should we teach our kids that having sex before marriage is okay, even if it goes against what God teaches?

Or go ahead and hit your friend because they would not give you a piece of candy?

Are all of these moral issues? In my opinion, yes, they are.

And on what morality are we basing our laws?
