Proposition 8

I don't like to get political on my blog. I tried to figure out why that is, and I came up with a few reasons:
  1. I don't want to alienate possible readers.
  2. I don't want to get harrassed for my political views, and I inevitably would. I'm not a registered Democrat or Republican, and I don't strongly associate myself with either party. However, if I had to choose, I would say I lean on the Republican side.
  3. I'm just not that interested in politics. I know I should be, and I try to be somewhat informed. In all honesty, though, I only see the current political environment and economic problems as the beginning of the end. Things are only going to get worse before they get better.

That said, there are some issues that I am wholeheartedly concerned with, and I will make no qualms expressing my opinions. Actually, I will let someone else express them. That is, I'm all for Proposition 8, and rather than tell you why, I will let Susan Noyes Anderson tell you in Prop 8: It's Impact: GREAT.

As a bonus, I'll even give you a link to an article written by a liberal Democrat who supports the Proposition: Protecting Marriage to Protect Children.

Thing I'm thankful for: having a job in these difficult economic times. And apple pie.

I admit, I was really sceptical about the whole gig at first when i skimmed through the wikipedia link cuz while I don't see homosexuality as right there are people whose brains work that way and it seemed at first like it was just going to leave them out in the cold...but that lds living article made it more clear that it's mostly about the definition of "marriage" and I agree with the way homegirl explained it. I imagine tons of homosexual couples will still feel unsatisfied with not being "married" even though it would only differ in name alone, but I think that is probably the right compromise. She cited great examples, too. Thanks for the links, Sara! I had never heard of this (I think).

In the "Thing I'm thankful for" section, I really like the "And apple pie." ha ha.
