Trying to raise my kids the best I can

Probably wasting my time but

I got this in my email today:

Dear Friend,

Just last month, the first "homosexual marriage" licenses were handed out here in California following a 4-3 California Supreme Court decision declaring an open-ended right to marriage under the state Constitution.

This arrogant act of judicial tyranny could create a ripple effect that threatens marriage from sea to shining sea.

If this decision is allowed to stand, the liberal Congress would feel emboldened to legalize "homosexual marriage" nationally. Liberal activist judges would be given cover to overturn the will of the people defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman.

Already, homosexual groups estimate that over 68,000 people from across the country will travel to California to take advantage of "homosexual marriage." The result? A legal crisis over whether many states -- maybe even yours -- will be forced to accept California "marriages" as legitimate.

The outcome of this fight in California may determine the fate of traditional marriage in America.

Fortunately, you and I have a chance to put a stop to this assault on traditional marriage. Thanks to a groundswell of public support from 1.1 million Californians who signed our petition, has placed the California Marriage Amendment on the November ballot. The Amendment would restore the traditional definition of marriage, overturning this activist court decision for good.

This is a fight we must win -- and winning won't be easy. Passing the California Marriage Amendment in the most expensive state in the country will require at least $15 million for TV, radio, and Internet advertisements, against a ruthless, determined opposition.

Will you join in this historic fight with your contribution of $250, $100, $50, or even $35?

If this radical agenda is allowed to prevail here in California, there's no telling how far and how fast the assault on traditional marriage would spread. The threat is no longer hypothetical. It is happening right here and right now, and this is our moment to act.

Just think of the impact on our children if this decision is allowed to stand. Under California law, schoolchildren as young as kindergarten would be taught that ?homosexual marriage? is the same as traditional marriage. This means that marriage -- the cornerstone of our society for thousands of years -- would be rendered effectively meaningless.

This is why we need you to join in this fight.

Unfortunately, we can't count on the same virtually unlimited resources available to the homosexual groups and their Hollywood friends. They will say and do anything to stop the California Marriage Amendment.

The reality is that to win, we must overcome left-wing billionaires, Hollywood money, and a liberal media which holds our traditional values in contempt.

Victory in California will take nothing short of a groundswell of support from concerned citizens like you, who rise up and say "Enough!" to this brazen attack on marriage.

Will you give what you can now, and send this email to 10 family and friends alerting them to this nationwide emergency?

This truly is a battle of historic proportions -- the first campaign of its kind to reverse an outrageous act of judicial overreach against marriage.

We can't afford to have you stay on the sidelines. Please join the campaign to preserve traditional marriage today.

Very urgently yours,

Ron Prentice

P.S. Unfortunately, there are other organizations that may try to use this crisis for their own fundraising purposes. Please rest assured that the legal sponsors of the California Marriage Amendment have designated as the official campaign committee for all donations in support of the Amendment.

I probably wasted my time but I wrote them back. tee hee. This is what I said:

I am a Christian who disagrees with you. I don't appreciate the fear mongering. I believe that the government should stay out of defining marriage. Civil unions for all! Leave the marrying up to the church! And you are completely wrong about the supreme court overstepping it's bounds. It is doing exactly what it is supposed to do. Read my blog on the subject here.

Thank you for reading this
