Proposition 8 is the very definition of why I write this blog. Christians are pushing a social agenda under the guise of protecting the family. It's all BS, lies, and hyperbole. This is what Prop 8 does.
It eliminates the rights for same-sex couples to marry. Prop 8 would deny equal protections and write discrimination against one group of people—lesbian and gay people—into our state constitution.
Another issue related to this ghastly initiative is that my alma mater has been smeared by association with a pro 8 commercial. I received this explanation by email.
Dear Pepperdine Alumnus:
Many members of the Pepperdine community have voiced opinions over a TV ad regarding Proposition 8. The ad features a Pepperdine professor and currently includes reference to his affiliation with the University.
We’d like to stress that the professor does not represent a Pepperdine University-endorsed position, as the University does not advocate for/against political candidates or ballot propositions.
The professor in the ad was not advocating a Pepperdine position, but his own personal position.
We have received confirmation that our request to have the reference to Pepperdine University deleted from the ad will be honored. We have been assured that the ad will be revised, perhaps by today.
Pepperdine is a Christian university. There is a big cross overlooking the campus. They by live their Christian values. The one thing I can bank on is their integrity.
Vote NO on Proposition 8.
