Thoughts on Traditional Marriage

Reason to Write is not a platform where we discuss our political ideals. However, this one is of such importance, I feel the need to post about it.

For those of you not in the state of California, let me tell you a little about Prop 8.  Prop 8 would create a state constitutional amendment that would state the only marriage between a man and a woman is allowed in the State of California.

Now, I really don’t know all the statistics or the numbers or every logical argument being put forth about this important issue.  All I can tell you are the things I know to be true.

First and foremost, I know that God loves His children.  All of them.  No matter what.  Because of that love, He has given us commandments to follow and consequences for when we choose to follow or choose not to.  One of the things He ordained from the creation of our Earth was that marriage was to be between a man and a woman.  His first commandment was that Adam and Eve should multiply and replenish the Earth and bring forth children.  These children would get the chance to learn and grow and strive to rely on the Atonement of Christ in the hope of someday after death, returning to live with God.  This is His plan for His children.  And He gave it to us because He loves us.

Gay marriage is not part of that plan.  This does not mean, however, that God loves those children that desire it any less then those that do not.  No, He loves them all.  God’s love of His children does not make it right though.  He has told us that if we would follow His plan and rely on Christ, that we would be led home to our Creator.  He also said that if we did not follow His plan, there would be consequences, the ultimate being the inability to return to God’s presence.

This issues (Prop 8.) is unfortunately being painted as a rights issue.  And it is not.  Everyone is right.  This is a moral issue.  But sometimes moral issues, especially those which go against the framework of truth given to us by our Father in Heaven, are too important no ignore.  This is one of those issues.

I understand that I may offend many by this post.  If so, I’m am sorry you were offended.  But, I am not sorry for what I have written, for what I have written is the truth that I know in my heart.  The truth that family is ordained of God and has been from the dawn of time.  The truth that the “traditional” family is essential to our life here on Earth and our life into the eternities.  The truth that some issues are too important to be a passive voter.

And, so, I would encourage you all to vote Yes on Proposition 8 come November 4th and declare that only marriage between a man and a woman is legal and accepted in the State of California.

Funny stories…

So as my first official post, I shall share a discovery I made this evening.  Fitting, it is, to mention it here, as it is another reason to write.

It’s got me thinking of all the funny experiences I have to write about.  Most of them are the make-you-cringe, I’m-so-glad-I-didn’t-have-to-deal-with-that-mess, mommy stories.  Most of them are probably a lot better if you were there to watch them happen… But that’s the problem of the author, and can usually be resolved by some quality-writing.

Be patient with me, dear public, as I learn wordpress.  Looks like it’ll be an uphill battle, as I can’t figure out the first step:  How to post as someone other than Zenobia.  😉
