MS. MAGGIE GALLAGHER, PRESIDENT INSTITUTE FOR MARRIAGE AND PUBLIC POLICY
MS. GALLAGHER: If you have your governments and your laws teaching the next generation including in grade school children in public schools that two men in a union are just the same as a husband and wife, that's a really important cultural shift. It's going to be
very hard to teach the next generation that children need a mother and father when our own government has defined that ideal as a form of bigotry. [Music] DR. GARLOW, LEAD PASTOR, SKYLINE CHURCH: Now we're up here, we're up to the I didn't even, uh, point out

DR. LEAD PASTOR. Why would that be? And where you change the definition of marriage once. GARLOW. And The reason is Now ironically in those places where same-sex marriage is legalized. simply because it works. Marriage has been the fundamental building block. a post-Christian culture. GARLOW. SKYLINE Letter E. LEAD PASTOR. a pre-Christian culture. You're a good In every culture. LEAD PASTOR. GARLOW. SKYLINE [Interposing] Good teacher. DR. letter E. an anti-Christian culture. CHRISTIAN COMEDIAN: you Sir. one man/one woman. CHRISTIAN COMEDIAN: [Interposing] Thank you. whether it's a Christian culture. there's a reason for that. in every culture. Thank DR.

Everywhere. SKYLINE [Interposing] You're doing pretty good. ironically marriage rates begin to plummet.
multi-racial marriages. that. has tried to equate the permission for same-sex people to marry with those who are biracial. It's not right.35 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 And three times. BOB HUGHES SKYLINE CHURCH PASTOR: You cannot compare the discrimination that was experienced of those of us who are up against--against interracial marriage in this country and compare it with same-sex marriage. Bob and Jan Hughes. It's wrong. And I want you to talk to us about What do--what goes through your Who wants to talk first heart and mind? when you hear those kinds of comparisons made? As the Connecticut Supreme Court just recently made that and said same-sex marriage has got to be legal because interracial marriage is now legal. and four times. step up here if you would. BOB & JAN HUGHES SKYLINE CHURCH PASTORS MR. pastors here on the church staff here at Skyline. and you end up with all kinds of odd combinations. Now one of the things that's been so offensive that the other side has tried to do. .
that was discrimination. what do you want to add to interracial marriage is forbidden. SKYLINE CHURCH PASTOR: There's nowhere in the Bible where In fact. DR. JAN HUGHES. DR. But it's the Bible itself that does condemn homosexual actions. Jan. And it doesn't violate God's law. This is an issue where we're taking a moral stand against an issue that the Bible explicitly forbids. God ordained And marriage between a man and a woman. Same-sex marriage does. SKYLINE CHURCH: that? MRS. GARLOW. when there used to be laws in this country that forbid interracial marriage. LEAD PASTOR. So do not condemn my God-ordained marriage on an issue that God labels as sin. SKYLINE CHURCH: Hear them carefully because when . even when interracial marriage was seen and authorized as legal. This isn't a matter of discrimination against homosexual marriage. um. GARLOW.36 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 It's just--it's just wrong. it's still God's pattern. LEAD PASTOR.
Maggie Gallagher. Talk to us about this issue that everywhere. MAGGIE GALLAGHER.37 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 interracial marriage laws went down. LEAD PASTOR. GARLOW. the fundamental building block has been one man/one woman. A man and a woman. GALLAGHER: Yeah marriage is a virtually universal human social institution. human beings over and over again come up . down in--in the Steppes of Asia. INSTITUTE FOR MARRIAGE AND PUBLIC POLICY MS. what Bob said. in every culture. which is God's pattern. it opened the door for God's pattern. uh. I hope you're available to hear us right now. of more men and more women to marry. Thank you Bob and Jan Hughes for your sharing on this as well-[Applause] DR. you know. Praise God that law was thrown aside. SKYLINE CHURCH: Let's go to Maggie Gallagher. Everywhere in--in jungles and in the desert and--and.
in our own culture but in every known human . Only those societies that manage the procreative implications of male/female sexual attraction survive. And it's It's a public union. I mean those of us who know about God's law but even those who don't know about God's law. it's a sexual union not some other kind of union between male and female. And. it's manifested over and over again. the thing you really have to ask yourself is why is it. got a certain shape to it. not just a person one. You need babies. And children need a Those three Not only father as well as a mother.38 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 with this basic marriage idea. ideas are the heart of marriage. Why? And I think that when you ask the question the answer is not hard to find. over and over again. not some other kind of union. Marriage exists in every known culture because every culture if it's going to survive has to deal with three basic facts which is that men and women are powerfully attracted to an act that creates new human life. um. so sex between men and women makes babies.

LEAD PASTOR. Now let's go further with our story. step over here a little bit further up. let's just pretend. GARLOW. if I were the enemy. a married couple. This--in this They're This-- illustration. Okay there we go. what would want to do is destroy the image of God off the earth so people would not have a grasp of the fullness of the nature of God. SKYLINE CHURCH: Okay. SKYLINE CHURCH: Victor. LEAD PASTOR.
The real marriage you have not yet fully seen. But if I were Satan and I knew that was God's agenda and where he was headed and he needed visual aids on the earth to try to . even the delight within sexual expression itself is a reminder of the sheer joy at the right hand. marriage. The real marriage. The joy of being in the presence of Almighty God.91 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 be like in the end times. is this one. And so he made the analogy well just like you have marriage on earth. the redeemed community. I'm going to put marriage on the planet so they'll get a grasp of the joy and the delight. We have it backwards. truly become one with each other. are pleasures for evermore. capital M. The church and Jesus coming together. This is small m. And God said. All of history is culminating towards that one thing when Jesus and the church become completely one. hum. so they can understand how wonderful this is. That's when the church and Jesus become one. that's what it's going to be like when Jesus and the church. capital Marriage.

I would clobber it with stuff like divorce and pornography.
Prop 8 is needed. as it was called. In 2000 a strong majority voted to uphold the definition of a traditional marriage with a statewide referendum. JENA NORRIS: For some citizens of California the need for Proposition 8 might seem a big confusing. As part-time residents of the Golden State we are concerned about the precedent set by Proposition 8 and its effect on the rest of the nation. the Marriage Amendment that maintains the union between a man and a woman. NORRIS: We encourage Californians to vote yes for Prop 8 for three simple . That is why It would amend the Constitution to define marriage as a union between one man and one woman. But Proposition 22. However in May of 2008. 4 California State Supreme Court judges. only amended State Civil Code. against the will of the California citizens. MRS. MR.93 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 California's Proposition 8. just as you voted in 2000. voted that laws limiting marriage to opposite sex couples violate the State's constitutional rights of same-sex couples.
MRS. NORRIS: Um-hum. NORRIS: The second reason that we encourage Californians to vote yes for Prop 8 is because redefining the bounds of marriage will have an immediate impact upon all of our children especially those within public schools. NORRIS: The third reason that we .94 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 reasons. First we don't believe four judges should have the right to overturn laws already passed by voters and the State legislature. The majority of Californians have already spoken and it is simply not right for a very small minority to override their decision. NORRIS: MR. Their jobs is to apply the laws to specific situations not to create new ones or legislate from the bench. Proposition 8 is not just about preserving traditional marriage but pro--protecting educational curriculum about this sacred union. MR. California Education Code Section 51933 states that instruction and material shall teach respect for marriage and committed relationships. MRS.
MRS. NORRIS: MR. NORRIS: Even Texans-[Interposing] Even . NORRIS: [Interposing] Um-hum. --as Americans. I say things that may ruffle feathers in government but freedom of expression is all of our right-MRS. God created the first couple. NORRIS: [Interposing] Um-hum. a man and a woman. MRS. Let's unite and let our Please take courage and vote yes on Proposition 8. MR. NORRIS: And safeguard marriage for future generations of Californians and the rest of America. that there's no reason to be ashamed of that fact. NORRIS: Um-hum.95 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 encourage Californians to vote yes for Prop 8 is because we're all Americans and we should never be afraid or intimidated to vote our conscience-MRS.
