OFFICIAL PROPONENTS ASK NATIONíS HIGHEST COURT TO RESOLVE PROP 8 CASE
Proposition 8 Legal Defense Fund ^ | July 31, 2012 | Proposition 8 Legal Defense Fund

SACRAMENTO – ProtectMarriage.com, the official proponents of California’s voter-passed Proposition 8, petitioned the United States Supreme Court today to review the misguided decision by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals declaring the initiative unconstitutional.

Earlier this year in a 2-1 decision in the Perry v Brown case, the Ninth Circuit – the most frequently overturned federal appellate court in the nation – errantly upheld a federal district judge’s decision that the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment prohibited California from enacting Prop 8 to restore the traditional definition of marriage between a man and a woman.

“Marriage between a man and a woman has been the cornerstone of our society for millenniums,” said Andy Pugno, Proposition 8’s general counsel. “In fact, before the recent movement cooked up by Hollywood heavyweights and supported by activist judges to normalize homosexual marriage, it was commonly understood without a hint of controversy that the institution of marriage owed its very existence to society’s vital interest in responsible procreation and childrearing. Prop 8 simply continues what every society has known and practiced: children and society are far better off when traditional marriage is maintained.”

I am continually bemused as to why homosexuals need to put the stamp of marriage for whatever or whenever they do their thing. To play housekeeping doesn’t take a marriage.

They are doing it so that they can criminalise Christianity and kick off Diocletian Persecution 2.0
