Reasons LDS Church is supporting California Prop 8

From the LDS Church Newsroom:
"At the request of the Protect Marriage Coalition, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is making arrangements for them to call friends, family and fellow citizens in California to urge support of the effort to defend traditional marriage. The coalition has asked members of the many participating churches and organizations to contribute in whatever way they can to the effort to pass Proposition 8."

Allow me, as a Roman Catholic blogger to this site, make the first comment.

The Roman Catholic Church has long been under fire for promoting things like the idea that marriage should be between one man and one woman for the purpose of love and the purpose raising children into the Judeo-Christian ideal. One man, one woman, and many children. All raised under the roof of Christian belief, and with the ideas of tolerance as long as they do not compromise our Judeo-Christian tradition that has stretched from neolithic times to the present.

Friends and relatives, let me tell you this thing. Even if the political climate changes and we have to accept things, legally, like marriage between more than one woman and a man, or man between man, or woman between woman, that will only mean that things have not changed. The Christian belief has suffered through centuries of non-belief, and, unlike our Moslem cousins, we have always held out the possible conversion and the possible changes of what people believe as the olive leaf of peace.

No, the Catholic Church does not believe that compromise is the key to the Kingdom of God. What the Maker told us was that we of the faith should believe and teach by example. That is the example of the savior. That is our example. That is what we believe, and that is how I live.

James, you have a point that the Christian belief has suffered before. With that in mind, however, that does not mean that we sit back and let it happen, either.

Like Catholics, there are things for which Mormons will not compromise. This is one of those issues.

I don't think one can claim to be a Christian of any denomination and support gay marriage or Islamic polygamy being written into our laws.

Well whether we support it or not, it is happening right in front of us. I think it makes it even more important to understand what our kids are being taught and then make sure that they understand why we believe what we believe.

James, you are right on that. I know my own parents let us know what they believe and why. There will always be those who will want to teach our children things contrary to what we believe...whether they are still children or on their own as adults.

We just have to keep the faith.
