Activism

Warning! This blog has been hijacked by a political activist!
Well, OK, it's just me...But I thought I would offer you all an explanation for the many recent posts related to the upcoming elections. The main purpose of this blog is to write about issues related to family and homeschooling. Earlier this year, a few judges on the California Supreme Court took it upon themselves to redefine marriage for the entire state of California. My immediate response was "I have to fight this!" I knew that many, many others share my concerns, and I started to look for ways to get involved. I signed up as a volunteer with ProtectMarriage.com, the coalition sponsoring Proposition 8. I have since gone door-to-door to talk to voters, I have made phone calls, I have a bumper sticker on my car--and I have posted my thoughts on this issue on my blog. I believe this issue cuts to the core of what is important in life--that is our families, and our freedom to worship God in accordance with out concience. I feel that there is a wind blowing in our country--a wind trying to silence the majority of the American people, the majority who believe in virtue, in morality, in God and Family. There are those who push their liberal agendas openly and loudly, while accusing anyone who speaks up for virtue and morality of bigotry. We are a majority. We need to stand up for right. We need to make our voices heard. The Savior commanded us to love our neighbour, and to be a light to the world. He never suggested we should condone sin. Thank you to all those who are reading and studying the issues. Let us move forward with prayer, with faith and hope, in support of what is right.

I'm so proud of you. I worked with the Family Leader folks here in my state. I was shocked at how many church members, even, took this subject lightly. All I can figure is that they don't understand the implications.

Thank you for DOING something about it. A lot of people say they agree, but then that's the end of the story. Do we believe marriage and family are important or not? Anyway, keep it up!

Okay, by the end of that I wanted to stand up and yell, "Amen, Sister!"
