Today is an important election day because Proposition 2 is being voted on in the ballot. Prop 2 wants to make marriage be clearly defined between a man and a woman. We as Christians adhere to the teachings of Jesus Christ. The late Pope John Paul the Great and then Cardinal Ratzinger who headed the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith stated in clear and no uncertain terms: " . . . Marriage is not just any relationship between human beings. It was established by the Creator with its own nature, essential properties and purpose.(3) No ideology can erase from the human spirit the certainty that marriage exists solely between a man and a woman . . ." ". . . man, the image of God, was created "male and female" (Gen 1:27)." ". . ."That is why a man leaves his father and mother and clings to his wife and they become one flesh" (Gen 2:24). . ." ". . .Thus, he blessed the man and the woman with the words "Be fruitful and multiply" (Gen 1:28). Therefore, in the Creator's plan, sexual complementarity and fruitfulness belong to the very nature of marriage. . ." ". . . The Church teaches that Christian marriage is an efficacious sign of the covenant between Christ and the Church (cf. Eph 5:32). . ." ". . . This Christian meaning of marriage, far from diminishing the profoundly human value of the marital union between man and woman, confirms and strengthens it (cf. Mt 19:3-12; Mk 10:6-9). . ." ". . .Sacred Scripture condemns homosexual acts "as a serious depravity... (cf. Rom 1:24-27; 1 Cor 6:10; 1 Tim 1:10). . ." ". . .Nonetheless, according to the teaching of the Church, men and women with homosexual tendencies "must be accepted with respect, compassion and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided".(7) . . ." Remember to vote today. The deadline is 7PM so hurry up! It is our duty as Christians to give glory to God through life. Marriage brings forth life and only between a man and a woman can life spring. Vote 'FOR' Proposition 2.
