Why we Support Proposition 8

I appreciate the comments on the last post. The comments helped me understand even better that this is an issue that people feel strongly about on both sides because both sides feel like their rights are being infringed upon. Here are a few documents and links that I hope may be helpful in understanding why we believe in defending proposition 8:
  • The Family: A Proclamation to the World - this document defines what members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons) believe marriage is. It also talks about why we believe that families are so important and the God-given laws associated with marriage and families.
  • The Divine Institution of Marriage - This is a document produced by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to explain its reasons for defending marriage between a man and a woman as an issue of moral imperative.
  • Other Links - These links are from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint's Newsroom that explain the Church's position on Same-Sex Marriage and Proposition 8.
