Excerpts from “Gay ‘Marriage’ Bill Approval Adds to Calif. Woes”
By Jennifer Riley, The Christian Post – September 10, 2007
Pro-family groups are denouncing a new California bill passed by the state senate Friday that grants marriage licenses to homosexual couples.
The bill, AB43, was passed by a vote 22-15 and seeks to replace the words “a man and a woman” with any “two persons” in California’s marriage laws.
The bill now heads to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s desk for approval.
Schwarzenegger has been ambiguous during previous questioning on the issue. He suggested that the term “marriage” can be eliminated because registered “domestic partners” already have all the same legal rights, benefits, duties and obligations as married couples. However, the governor also vetoed a similar bill in 2005.
California would be the second state to legalize same-sex “marriage,” after Massachusetts, if the bill is signed by Gov. Schwarzenegger.
In 2000, 62 percent of voters passed a constitutional amendment, Proposition 22, that states “only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.”
“Time is running out for generous souls to leave the legacy of marriage to future generations through the VoteYesMarriage.com amendment,” said Randy Thomasson, president of Campaign for Children and Families (CCF).
The VoteYesMarriage initiative gives California voters the right and ability to override the judges and politicians in the decision to protect marriage as between a man and a woman.

It’s not hard to prove the statistical link between “gay marriage” and destruction of families. Click here to read FPN’s commentary on statistics proving why societies that adopt “gay marriage” simultaneously weaken the traditional family.
The state of California does not have a marriage amendment that protects one-man, one-woman marriage. Pro-family Californians should work to pass a state marriage amendment before the pro-homosexual legislature or rogue judges force “gay marriage” on them. However, marriage amendments that merely define the term “marriage” without also banning counterfeits should be opposed. Click here to read why merely protecting the “m”-word is not enough.
