An Issue Bigger than California # 2 of 2

An Issue Bigger than California # 2 of 2
cinops be gone Tuesday, October 21, 2008 P.M.

We continue from this morning’s article:
Proposition 8 opponents don’t necessarily disagree. As Bill Press, former chairman of the California Democratic Party and a nationally known political commentator says:
“Proposition 8 is the death rattle of the homophobic religious right. They will lose, and that will end the ugly attempts of so-called Christian conservatives to sell discrimination to sell discrimination in this country.”
(The above hurts deeply because it is spoken by a CINOP commentator.)

One major factor affecting the initiative is the national election. United States Senator John McCain, the GOP candidate for president, has announced his support of the measure. California’s Republican Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, on the other hand voices his support for the Supreme Court’s decision and his opposition to the ballot measure.
(The above hurts deeply because Governor Schwarzenegger is a CINOP.)

Also, as one California lobbyist told CWR, “If Obama is on a roll and the ‘yes’ side doesn’t have a lot of money to spend on TV, this thing probably goes down.”

One late-breaking and potentially decisive factor is a move by former governor and current Attorney General Jerry Brown to change the ballot title and summary language, which California law allows him to do. The title was to have been The Limit on Marriage Constitutional Amendment. However, Brown has changed the title to read, “Eliminates Right of Same-sex couples to Marry.”

Voters originally would have seen the description: “Amends the California to provide that only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.” Now, because of Brown’s actions, they will be asked to vote on a measure that “{changes} the California Constitution to eliminate the right of same-sex couples to marry in California.” …
The above hurts deeply because Brown is another most notorious CINOP; and while there is division with the Catholic Church on Catholic-in-name-only politicians, marriage is fundamental to our Faith. It would be wise for our California Bishops to censure these politicians in a one paragraph announcement.
Headline News: California Teacher Unions contribute 1$ million to defeat Prop. 8

Personal: I have watched Jerry Brown in politics for more than 30 years. He is a rotten, despicable human being. He destroyed the Public School Teaching Profession that I was in for 23 years. I retired in 1986. He legalized the Rodda Act of 1975 which destroyed the independent-minded teacher, unionized and politicized the teaching profession. It is a personal insult to pay today the unions of NEA, CTA, and Westminster, about one thousand dollars a year as tribute to teach in the Public Schools. They use these monies to promote left-wing causes.
I retired in 1986. By the way, I was a voluntary member of the NEA, CTA and WTA for five years, 1963-68 when at time they were a professional teacher organization. My voluntary dues were about $50. yearly, for all 3 organizations.
