Hi all. Here's my latest news.
Well...I guess we have a new president. I didn't vote for him, but I sincerely hope he does this Country proud. I do have to say it is nice to have the first Black President in the White House. It's been a long time coming. So, for all of you supporters Congratulations! You won it. And I hope that he continues on the path he outlined for us as the leader of this great Nation of ours. HooRah!
Now onto more controversial subjects-Prop 8
I voted Yes on 8 as all of you know. And I am proud to say that 5,725,000 other people feel the same way I do. Once again the Sanctity of Traditional Marriage is sacred again. But, as one spokewoman for the Mormon Church says in an interview this morning, "This measure in no way changes anything for Gay Rights." It's true. We will continue turning a blind eye to same sex couples co-living together and setting up housekeeping. They will still be covered in the insurance offered by various companies. Even though I disagree with couples living together outside of Marriage this also covers those who do. This woman continues on by saying, "...All this measure does is difines that the Sate of California can only recognize a Marriage as Traditional, between a man and a woman."
Furthermore, we who voted Yes on Prop 8 are being accused of racism and discriminating against Gay Rights. This is not true. The laws are pretty clear on this particular argument. You can not be racist or discriminate against sexual orientation. You can be racial and discriminate against other races than yours. That is the real definition of racial discrimination. It has absolutely nothing to do with sexual orintation. Voting Yes on 8 does not make anyone racist it only defines what California wants, No Gay Marriages Allowed.
Moving on to another issue that will soon be coming up in this State. Gay couples being allowed to adopt or foster children. The State of Arkansas voted Yes on Prop 8, also took it to another level. They voted against Gay couples being allowed to adopt or foster children. I'm not sure about our Morale supporters in Arizona and Florida on this particular argument. I do know, that they also voted in our favor on Prop 8. But, it will soon become clear if we need to follow Arkansas lead on Gay Couples being able to adopt or foster children. As for me, I disagree with the whole adopting thing. I beleive that a child should be rasied in Traditional Home with Traditional Values. Being Gay is a choice. Your choice. And I commend you for that. But, it does not mean that being Gay is Right.
So, here it is. My views and opoinons on this whole Election thing. What's yours? Leave your comments and refute any or all of my statements including anything others have wrote.
Thank you and have nice day.
