Rick Warren and proposition 8

I must admit that I'm not much of a Rick Warren fan but when he's right, he's right. Rick Warren has come out in support of California's proposition 8.

In California, Proposition 8 would define marriage as between one man and one woman, overturning the legalization of homosexual marriage as forced on California by idealogically motivated judges.

Warren says that people in California "need to vote 'yes' on Proposition 8 because for "5,000 years, every culture and every religion...not just Christianity...has defined marriage as a contract between men and women."

According to Warren, "there is no need to change the universal, historical defintion of marriage to appease 2 percent of our population." Warren argues that ""This is not a political issue -- it is a moral issue that God has spoken clearly about" (OneNewsNow).

I would argue the same about abortion. It is not a political issue. It is a moral issue on which God has clearly spoken.

Barack Obama has taken positions against God on both of these major moral issues! The fact that so many Christians, Muslims and religous Jews plan to vote for Barack Obama shows how culture has infected their thinking to the point where they will actually put modern concepts of political correctness above what, according to their own religion, God teaches.

Folks, who should know/behave better have chosen to vote "for change". As one columnist stated recently, the Republicans had the ill-fortune to be in power at the time of a world-wide economic slowdown/recession. Just as Herbert Hoover in 1929, McCain, and possibly Repulibicans at lesser levels, will pay dearly on election day; just for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. A Democrat, purportadly, said following the 1929 Crash, "we could run a rag doll against Hoover at this time, and it would win. Well it looks like, due to economic, not spiritual, needs, the "rag doll" will triumph.

This proposition didn't pass, and the liberal illuminati are furious. Deal with, we all had things get through we disliked.
