The entire text of Proposition 8 is as follows: "Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid and recognized in California."
Proposition 8: The California Marriage Protection Amendment (from www.protectmarriage.com/about
Proposition 8 places into the California Constitution the same language that voters already passed by 61% of the vote in 2000. This is necessary to overturn an outrageous California Supreme Court decision that overturned Proposition 22.
About Proposition 8
Proposition 8 is simple and straightforward. It contains the same 14 words that were previously approved in 2000 by over 61% of California voters: “Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.”
Because four activist judges in San Francisco wrongly overturned the people’s vote, we need to pass this measure as a constitutional amendment to restore the definition of marriage as between a man and a woman.
Voting YES on Proposition 8 does 3 simple things:
It restores the definition of marriage to what the vast majority of California voters already approved and what Californians agree should be supported, not undermined.
It overturns the outrageous decision of four activist Supreme Court judges who ignored the will of the people.
It protects our children from being taught in public schools that “same-sex marriage” is the same as traditional marriage, and prevents other consequences to Californians who will be forced to not just be tolerant of gay lifestyles, but face mandatory compliance regardless of their personal beliefs.
“For 5,000 years, every culture and every religion - not just Christianity - has defined marriage as a contract between men and women,” Warren wrote. “There is no reason to change the universal, historical definition of marriage to appease 2% of our population.” Video on Rick Warren support proposition 8
Warren is considered one of the most respected and influential pastors in America and his support of Proposition 8 is unequivocal. He was named one of TIME magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World and 15 World Leaders Who Matter Most and was called one of America’s Top 25 Leaders by U.S. News and World Report.
One person has astutely observed that ’we cannot win the culture war merely on Prop 8, but we can lose it on Prop 8.'
"It is imperative that all pastors and Christian leaders view this for what it is: an irretrievable moment, with profound and lasting consequences. We must vigorously support Prop 8, as if our ministries and our lives depend on it. Ultimately, they will." www.protectmarriage.com/testimonials
