    One lone Catholic organization opposing prop 8! Instead of stop paying taxes, gays should start using the laws to curb this devious Christian cult of Catholicism. This gutter cult hasn’t contribute anything positive to humanity once. Only deaths and destructions.

  2. achievementgap says:

    Wow, you are just a fount of positive commentary. You and Jesus are against gay marriage, and you are against the Catholic Church? Strange contradiction so I’m not sure you’re serious.

    I’m not even Catholic and the notion that the Catholic Church has never contributed anything positive to humanity is preposterous. Catholic Charities is one of the most active and effective charitable organizations in the world. What about Mother Theresa who was the public face of a massive Catholic aid project in India. What about Soeur Emmanuelle, the “French Mother Theresa?”

  3. […] Churches and other faith-based organizations against Proposition 8 […]

  4. I just wanted to let you know that the 2008 Session of California-Pacific Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church went on record OPPOSING Proposition 8 on June 20, 2008. The Cal-Pac Annual Conference is the regional judicatory representing 380 local churches and 89,000 congregants in Southern California, Hawaii, Guam, and Saipan. The Conference took this unprecedented action after a ten-year dialogue among progressives and evangelicals resulting a a number of cooperative mission projects through which we came to know each other as as faithful Christians despite our profound difference on a number of contemporary issues. The particular concern of Cal-Pac members was the impact that Proposition 8 would have on gay and lesbian families and the 50,000+ children in California being raised in same-gender households. We are hopeful that in the next phase of this effort, the campaign for marriage equality will give these issues the attention they deserve.

    Thanks for all that you are doing.

    Grace and peace,

    Thank you Pastor Scott.

    The No on 8 campaign was not run well, in the opinion of many people. I think Prop 8 took the community by surprise and none of us did what we could to defeat it. We particularly failed in neglecting to reach out to all members of our community – including families with children.

    I have hope though. Prop 8’s passage has mobilized us and I believe in the next phase we will approach the struggle with a broader perspective. Protecting the children of same sex parents should be on the top of our agenda. Thank you so much for your comments.

    Best regards,
