Vote YES on Proposition 8

In the beginning there was Adam and Eve. It started out with husband and wife and that is the way it should be today. Marriage between a man and a woman is ordained of God. “The spirit and influence of wives and mothers make our homes places where we are surrounded by peace and love and protected from the contention, temptation, and opposition of the world.” (Daughters of God, by S. Michael Wilcox, P. 7) As mothers we bring children into the world through birth and from that point on our lives are centered on our children. As a woman we all have the characteristic and attributes that come from being a mother. Mothers play a very important part in the lives of the children in their homes.
Father’s presides over the home with his wife by his side. President Gordon B. Hinckley has taught: “In this Church the man neither walks ahead of his wife nor behind his wife but at her side. They are coequals.” (Conference Report, Oct. 1996, 68; or Ensign, Nov. 1996, 49). Husband and wife are united in all things as they lead, guide and direct their families
All children should have the opportunity of being a part of a family unit where there is a mother and a father. Each brings something different and unique to the marriage and family unit. We need the strength and the power that comes from the husband and the nurturing that comes from the mother. We need to do all that we can to protect this family unit by voting no for Proposition 8.
