For the sake of parental control....First let me say that I live in the liberal state of Massachusetts. I grew up in a traditional family in a small town.
Parental rights are and should remain at the forefront of raising our children. Matters of morality and sexuality will be initiated and reenforced in the home and our local church. Sadly, we have reached a point in our society where the "if it feels good ..do it"mentality is the prevailing social doctrine and the ultra liberal vocal minority has done an exceptional job in influencing the curriculum in our schools and working with organizations such as the ACLU to remove the last shreds of morality and parental control from schools.
Books like "the king and the king" and "And Tango makes three" have been insidiously pushed on our kids as early as Kindergarten and serve no other purpose than to indoctrinate our children into the gay agenda. This indoctrination serves no other purpose other than pushing social agenda over age appropriate learning. There is nothing unfair or immoral about the passing of question 8. The voice of the majority has been heard. This majority rule if the very foundation of democratic society. While I can empathize with the plight of any group of people who have lost in votes in our democratic society...the greater good is served. I believe that if the gay marriage question was put to ballot in all the states, it would be soundly defeated. Please understand, I am not a hate monger nor intolerant...I just believe that marriage is between 1 man and 1 woman and the more we allow vocal minority groups(by minority I mean in numbers only) to pick apart the foundations of our society, the more we move head on into our own undoing.
