As I’ve become more familiar with the worldwide societal changes to family that are taking place I can’t help but wonder if the No on Prop 8 folks have the wrong message. If they are honest about their end goals – complete acceptance of any alternative family arrangement – anything goes – then they would recognize that by the time gay marriage is allowed it is too late to turn back. Does the fact that we now allow same-sex marriage mean that we’ve already dimished the value of family beyond repair? Those of us that are LDS had what we consider a prophetic declaration regarding the sanctity of the Family and it’s divine structural requirements in 1995. Timely enough to probably save the families in the Netherlands. I suppose I’ve been mistaken in think that the Proclamation was simply prophetic as predicting the times we live in now. I’m now wondering if there was action that we should have taken in 1995 to prevent the perilous spot we are in now.
Having said all that, we are Americans. We are not Europeans. Our will (the peoples) has not been heard since the Judiciary voided our voice. I believe it is not to late for us yet. Vote Yes on 8 and prove that we are captains of our our destiny.
