Black Community Says YES on 8 "THIS IS NOT a CIVIL RIGHTS Issue"

An email received from Marvin Perkins


Great news!

With the Black community now leading the support for Yes on Proposition 8, victory is within our grasp. However, we can't let up. We must show California voters that civil rights is not the issue. The information in this email will do just that. So will you please share this email with everyone you know in CA? The real agenda for the gay rights movement is political power and control. It is about manipulating public opinion and indoctrinating children. As Dee Garrick, who marched with Dr. Martin Luther King, says at the end of the attached video, "It's not about civil rights. Racism was about civil rights. This is about society, our future and our children." For those of you in other states, see summary #5 on how CA decision affects your states.

1. CNN Interview Airs Today Gay Supreme Court Judge and Two Others Said "NO" to Overturning Prop 22

Judge Carol Corrigan, one of 3 dissenting CA Supreme Court Justices said "In a democracy, the people should be given a fair chance to set the pace of change without judicial interference. That is the way democracies work. Ideas are proposed, debated, tested. Often new ideas are initially resisted, only to be ultimately embraced. But when ideas are imposed, opposition hardens and progress may be hampered." Corrigan is saying she would like to see gay marriage become the law of the land. She just did not think it was the place of the court to make it so. And she feared that in so doing, the court might actually do more harm than good. http://www.sacbee.com/opinion/v-print/story/945707.html

4. CA School Holds "Gay Day" for K-8 Graders (October 23, 2008)

Opponents of Prop 8 say that it has nothing to do with children or what is taught in schools. If they're willing to be this blatant before the election, can you imagine what it will be like if we don't get the YES on 8? http://www.citizenlink.org/CLNews/A000008510.cfm

5. Gay Man Speaks of CA Prop 8 Decision On Other States

Last week I, Marvin, had a conversation with a Rev. on the board of the SCLC, Southern Christian Leadership Council, founded by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. He shared with me a conversation he had with a gay man. "With civil unions, you have the same rights as married couples, so why is gay marriage so important to you" he asked. The man said "You're right, we do have the same rights with civil unions. But if we move to another state which has chosen not to recognize same-sex marriage, if we have a legal marriage from CA, they have to recognize it. This further demonstrates that this is not at all about civil rights. In essence, not only are they looking to take away the rights of Californian voters, parents and children, but those of other states as well. See similar wording in the Gavin Newsom Video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yPh0PQ89n6Y
