The fact is, one homosexual activist (from another state!) has the power and funds to donate one million dollars to help defeat Proposition 8 on the California ballot; whereas, a traditional family advocacy group has sacrificially donated half a million dollars (money from donations that have been saved up over the course of several years) in the effort to get the message out there for Christians to come out to the polls in droves and vote for Proposition 8.
Utah millionaire donates money to fight California's anti-gay marriage amendment
Don't you love the spin in that title? It's not an "anti-gay" marriage amendment. It is an amendment to CORRECT the ideologically driven OPINIONS of four rogue judges who took it upon themselves to re-define the term "marriage" while creating a "right" to same sex "marriage" out of thin air.
The same thing is always done on the topic of abortion. Pro-life advocates are called "anti-choice." That is NOT factually correct either! I'm pro-life and I'm all for choice - specifically, the choice for the BABY TO BE ABLE TO BE BORN AND LIVE!
Choose life! Your mother did!
The verbal propaganda of the homosexual activists is already out there. Unfortunately, they will have the press and MSM on their side. Such propaganda is only going to be ratcheted up the closer we get to Election Day.
I would urge all Christians to become totally familiar with the proper talking points in order to turn away the spin that our opponents will undoubtedly place on this issue. We need to point out and emphasize, every chance we get, to proclaim the REAL AND GENUINE point of this issue:
The fact that 61% of Californias VOTED for Proposition 22 back in the year 2000 which stated that, "only marriage between a man and a woman is legal and recognized in California." And, four rogue judges seem to think that their 4 measly ideologically driven opinions and votes should trump the over 4 million votes that were cast when Proposition 22 passed in 2000. THAT'S the TRUTH of the matter.

"The battle for marriage in California is very important," the American Family Association said in its email message.
"If California defeats Proposition 8, it will open the floodgates for same-sex marriage in all the other states. The battle in California isn’t simply about California. It will affect every state, yours included. The homosexual groups have already raised millions, and are expected to spend nearly $20 million to destroy marriage as it has existed for thousands of years."
The American Family Association said the group fighting to defend marriage in California needs financial support. "Your gifts over the years allowed us to provide some help. We thank you," the message concluded.
This is how important and crucial Proposition 8 will be to our society, our state, and our nation.
We need to bathe this situation in prayer every day - from this moment until the close of the polls on November 4, 2008.
Will you choose to join me in being a Christian Culture Warrior on this extremely important issue?
I noticed that the homosexual activist/supporter who gave one million dollars to groups active in trying to defeat this ballot measure said the following:
"Bastion said, "I'm just not going to sit quietly by and let them do it. I just don't believe it's right. I don't believe it's fair. I don't believe it's what Jesus would do."
He doesn't believe "it's what Jesus would do??"
Don't you just love it when non-Christian people use the name of Jesus while trying to make a political point that CLEARLY goes against what the Bible teaches?
This man may make millions at his job, but he certainly does not know the REAL Jesus. He doesn't have a clue about what Paul describes and teaches in the epistles that we are to have "the mind of Christ." Yet, this guy is arrogant enough to tell millions of Christian believers what he thinks Jesus would not do?
People, the onslaught is only just beginning.
PLEASE do not give in to the homosexual activists.
PLEASE do not give up on this issue.
PLEASE do all that you can - prayerfully, action-oriented, and financially in the effort to get Christian voters to the polls and VOTE FOR PROPOSITION 8 on November 4th!
Sincerely & In Christ's service,
2Ti 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
2Ti 1:8 Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me His prisoner, but share with me in the sufferings for the gospel according to the power of God,
2Ti 1:9 who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began,
2Ti 1:10 but has now been revealed by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who has abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel,
2Ti 1:11 to which I was appointed a preacher, an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles.[fn2]
2Ti 1:12 For this reason I also suffer these things; nevertheless I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day.
2Ti 1:13 Hold fast the pattern of sound words which you have heard from me, in faith and love which are in Christ Jesus.
2Ti 1:14 That good thing which was committed to you, keep by the Holy Spirit who dwells in us.
