California Gay Marriage
Opposing California's Gay Marriage Ruling
Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel is circulating a petition.
The California Supreme Court abandoned the rule of law in its 4-3 decision sanctioning same-sex marriage in the nation’s largest state. Homosexual marriage is now the official law of the land in California and homosexuals and lesbians now have a ‘right’ to get married.
Liberty Counsel has led the fight against ACLU-backed homosexual rights groups in this case every step of the way. Now, Liberty Counsel is filing an official motion to suspend the ruling pending the outcome of this November’s statewide marriage referendum. Sign this petition to suspend the homosexual marriage ruling.
Your petition will be delivered to California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and other officials, urging them to call for an immediate suspension of the ruling pending this November’s ballot initiative. Urgent Action is needed! The first marriage licenses are expected to be issued no later than June 15!
The Petition States:
As a concerned citizen, I am signing this petition opposing the California Supreme Court’s 4-3 ruling sanctioning same-sex marriage. Four activist judges have wrongly overturned the clearly stated will of the people of California and as a result have thrown our nation’s marriage laws into turmoil.
I am asking state and federal leaders — including California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and California Attorney General Jerry Brown — to join the effort calling for a ’stay’ of this ruling. With a constitutional amendment set to be placed before the people of California this November, I call upon the California Supreme Court to suspend it’s ruling pending the outcome of the vote of the people.
Those of you who oppose ‘homosexual marriage’, and activist courts,
go to http://www.libertyaction.org/290/petition.asp?PID=16590782 to sign the petition.
Some Facts about marriage in California
Real Marriage is...
...an institution for a man and a woman. Marriage is not genderless. It is a union of two different sexes, not just a union of two different people. Real marriage (a man & a woman) is not rooted in discrimination. It is rooted in common sense, for the common good. For marriage to flourish in our culture, it must be protected from redefinition; for if marriage can mean anything, it will mean nothing. [Note: If you disagree with this bedrock principle, please read no further. No marriage that violates the man-woman standard can be real.]
...best for children. While thousands of Massachusetts single moms and dads earn their “SuperParent” wings every day, to raise healthy children who become productive citizens, there is but one gold standard for which we should strive as a society... that every child be reared by a loving mother and father.
…the ultimate solution for Massachusetts’s problems. Prisons fill, schools fail, and welfare rolls grow because of the breakdown of marriage & the home. Governments and charities have spent millions of dollars for decades treating symptoms. It is time for governments, churches, communities and businesses to come together to treat the cause.
...an intimate, healthy relationship. Real Marriage means communication, commitment, respect and selfless love. These are the keys to a healthy, happy, affair-proof life ’til death do us part. Successful parenting and warm, enduring bonds with children comes from true intimacy in marriage.
...worth working at. Divorce and dissatisfaction can be avoided. A good marriage is worth the effort it requires, and organizations across Massachusetts stand ready to help with proven programs and timeless wisdom.
...built on faith. Marriage is a God-designed institution predating constitutions, governments, and laws. Marriage works best when God is the foundation and central unifying presence.
