My Brothers & Sisters:
Starting at 9 am PST TODAY Oral Arguments are being presented to the California State Supreme Court on whether Proposition 8 is Constitutional and should become law… The opponents of Proposition 8 claim the voters of the State of California made a fundamental change to the Constitution of the State of California which requires a completely different process than that for simply amending the Constitution, one which we, as voters, aren’t legally empowered to do. Of course, we, and those arguing on our behalf, claim that Proposition 8 did not make a fundamental change to the Constitution of the State of California, and that the one’s who made the change were the 4 justices of the California State Supreme court who overturned the State’s ban on “Same-Sex” Marriage (Proposition 22) in May, 2008.
As most of you know, the opposition to Proposition 8 and its supporters has been virulent and, sometimes, downright hateful. Those who support “Gay Marriage” have displayed NONE of the tolerance they’ve so often demanded of others. Because of that, and because of the need to preserve Traditional Marriage in society, I’m going to beg you to pray for 2 things - 1) That those presenting in defense of Proposition 8 (The Respondents - the California State A.G. refused to defend the law we passed) persuade the Justices of the State Supreme Court that Proposition 8 is “Constitutional”, makes NO fundamental change to the California State Constitution, that the voters were well empowered by the State Constitution to AMEND the Constitution in “this Manner and Fashion”, and that this NEVER required the process envisioned by the opponents of Proposition 8; 2) That those who have so vehemently opposed Proposition 8 and have so strongly supported “gay marriage” would accept a Decision that declared Proposition 8 to be Constitutional, that God would soften their hearts so they would live in peace with their neighbors who supported Proposition 8, and that God would so soften their hearts that they would hear and accept His Gospel, reprnt of their sins and inherit eternal life.
