Proposition 8 - You Can't Change Truth

As a Catholic Christian who believes society is best served by not trying to spit into the wind - and ignoring other natural laws, I was glad to see Prop 8 pass in California. CALIFORNIA of all places. Imagine what it might do elsewhere.... well, okay, forget Massachusetts—perhaps the most Catholic unChristian commonwealth in the country. I'm always a little taken back by the contradiction of Massachusetts' occasional abbreviation "Mass". Based on the lives and policies of their congressional representatives, and state policies, even though there are a lot of "Catholics" living there, a "Mass" in Massachusetts seems incongruous.

But, California! Even though Prop 8 passed by a slim margin, there is a shred of light in its passing. Now, I'm trying to figure out how the Supreme Court (in CA) can rule on a constitutional proposition. Do they invalidate the Constitution that gave the people the right to amend it? I really don't know how that works.

But there is one thing I know that does work, and no one can invalidate the consequences if you buck it: Natural Law (God's Law).

Meg Waters, part of the Yes on 8 campaign team, told City News Service:
Marriage has been defined as a man and woman since time began...You can't change the definition of something that existed forever because you don't like it.
Someone else suggested that gays might give a name to their partnerships, how about "Gayrage." Seems appropriate.

And then this bit of wisdom from Ellen DeGeneres on the issue. It's "insightful."
Watching the returns on election night was an amazing experience. Barack Obama is our new president. Change is here. I, like millions of Americans, felt like we had taken a giant step towards equality. We were watching history.

This morning, when it was clear that Proposition 8 had passed in California, I can’t explain the feeling I had. I was saddened beyond belief. Here we just had a giant step towards equality and then on the very next day, we took a giant step away.
Amazing isn't it that homosexuality, something condemned time and again through out history, by the Bible, and by natural law (Gayrage can't procreate -- by natural consequences it ends in death) is equated, fallaciously, with the equality due human being of different races. In terms of what God sees nothing morally is changed. He loves all, even Ellen. And he hates sin. He's loving, but he's also just. Get used to it.

Finally, as proof (okay, I can't prove anything.... so how about...) ah, as evidence -- of what is true (in reality) notice the picture of Ellen and her partner at the top of this blog. It's not strange that Ellen and her partner can't shake the call of natural law in their lives -- that "somehow" there should be, has to be, must be, -- a man and a woman in a conjugal relationship. Notice how they are dressed.

You can't spit into the wind without consequences.
