Proposition 8

I am a Californian and I voted FOR the measure but, as time has gone on, I am increasingly aware that this proposition should NEVER had been on the ballot.
First of all, there is nothing in the U. S. Constitution about marriage (or abortion, for that matter). The framers of this document knew that the only way to procreate was for a man and a woman to "make a baby". It was a given fact, both socially and especially physically. The entire issue is unconstitutional!
Secondly, once again progressives want to mandate morals or the lack there of. As with abortion, the idea of "gay marriage" (an oxymoron if I ever heard one!) can't be a legal issue. I wonder why those who were and are against abortions are not some name like those who believe marriage should be between a man and woman? We hate women because we think abortion is murder? I mean, think about it. We are called bigots and homophobes because we believe that marriage is physically, socially and morally designed to be male/female. I don't quite understand how "they" come up with the names either.
I am not "afraid" of homosexual men and women. I have worked and lived in the California Bay Area for over 30 years where we have a community of homosexuals, blacks, Latinos, Asians, and on and on. I never gave the homosexuals any more thought than the rest of them. That doesn't mean I condone their behavior; their CHOICE of lifestyle. I don't understand the bigot label either. How is it bigoted to want to keep private stuff private? How is it bigoted to ask homosexuals to treat me as they would want to be treated? To respect my views and beliefs?
I truly resent that their agenda includes forcing their private sexual life into every part of life today. They push their sex life to the kids, on television, on radio, in the movies. They have outrageous parades that disgust any person who chooses to keep their sex life private. Yes, I know that all homosexuals do not act the way we see on the news. The main-stream media has to sensationalize everything so we will watch their network. I understand that. But I have been in public places and I don't like to see groping, french-kissing, humping between ANY couples. It is inappropriate and immodest. Keep it in the bedroom, okay? That goes for everybody!
If heterosexuals had behaved (or even now do) in public this way even 15 years ago, we would have been arrested for indecent exposure and/or lewd and lascivious behavior. Yet, we are supposed to think it is acceptable that the homosexuals act this way; print pamphlets for our children so they know how to "do it".
None of this should be public: your sex life or mine!! Certainly it should not be a reason for violence, threats, name-calling, etc.
As I said at the beginning, this issue should not have had to even be brought to the voters. Not just once but twice? This issue should not have been set aside by an activist judge who has his own agenda either.
I can only pray that this nation REPENT of its debauchery before we completely fall apart.
