On the ballot in California this upcoming election, we will be voting on whether or not to amend the constitution to preserve marriage so that it is only between a man and a woman. A yes on proposition 8 would mean that religious freedoms and personal liberties associated with following one’s own beliefs are protected. A no on prop 8 would mean more government and less parental control. For example, 2 weeks ago in San Fransisco, a public school took a group of first graders to a lesbian wedding. This week, another school hosted “Gay day” for their kindergartners, and did not inform their parents. In Massachusetts, where gay marriage is already legalized, a father was arrested for discrimination when he simply asked the school if he could be informed whenever his son would be exposed to ‘gay’ literature. If prop 8 does not pass, religious preachers and pastors will be continued to be sued under the guise of ‘hate speech’ crimes if they preach against homosexuality.
Right now, Yes on Prop 8 is up in the polls by 3%, but our opponents are spending over $7 Million dollars on airtime alone this week. Prop 8 has spent little money because we have so many grassroots campaigns, but in this last week it is very important that we get the word out to everyone we did not reach with our door knocking, phone calls, and sign waving. The No on Prop 8 commercials are relentless, and we desperately need to combat them. While we definitely have a superior amount of yard signs posted than our opponents do, it doesn’t help when they keep getting stolen or set on fire by those who intent do inhibit free speech.
If we do not raise $3 Million dollars this week, we will lose. Please help us in our efforts. If you are wealthy and can afford to contribute, please follow the link below. If not, please spread the word and pass this email on to anyone you know that can help.
Also, if you don’t live in California, which many of you on this list do not, consider the ripple effect that California laws often have on the rest of the nation. Let’s stop it at the root of the problem now.
Thank you so much for your time and support,
