The base of the Republican Party believes if they bring out the wedge issues then they will bring out a Republican victory in California. Randy Thomasson and his friends are bringing out an initiative to protect marriage to be on the November ballot. However the heterosexual population of California have done little much to protect their own marriages with increased incidents of divorce. In a state such as California there are other worthy issues the Republican party can use to get the vote instead of this.
If we want to protect marriage we need to require couples to enter in a covenant marriage and eliminate the no-fault divorce before we decide to enact bigotry in our state constitution.
Please reconsider signing these petitions by considering your friends and family members who will be affected by your signature to “protect” marriage. If you want to protect marriage, protect your own instead of creating second class citizens.
