It Really Never Stops

The will of the people obviously means nothing to the Californians devoted to deleting the word "marriage" from all state laws.

Yeah, you read that right.

There is now a petition circulating around California with the aim to replace "marriage" with "domestic partnership." Sounds a little sketchy doesn't it? Well, that's because it is. It would, in effect, repeal the Prop 8 decision made last November that has all the liberals in a tizzy. It would allow for the "union" (whatever meaning that has to the anti-marriage crowd) of any two people - man and woman or man and man. Both partnerships would be "equal."

They are trying to "kill marriage." (To borrow a phrase from Fox News)

And what does that mean for the Church? Basically, that God's unions are no longer important to the state. Marriage would be dead, the word would be meaningless. The sacramental and holy value associated with the word would be lost to the future generations who would only ever learn about "domestic partnerships" and never about Matrimony. What would that do for the declining numbers of Church goers? At what rate would non-believers exist in the country then? And is homosexuality really something a 4 year old NEEDS to learn about, alongside Arabic Numerals and the English Alphabet?
