(CNSNews.com) - "Mr. and Mr. Patrick and Chuck Everlove take pleasure in requesting the honor of your presence at the joining of their son Bruce William, in holy matrimony, to Mr. John Robert Jones..."
So begins an "action alert" from the Campaign for California Families, a conservative group that is fighting same-sex marriage in California. CCF's message airs concerns about turning the traditional social order on its head.
"Unless you act today, homosexual wedding announcements will soon be common in California," the group said in a press release.
"Eventually these wedding announcements will be followed by, 'Mr. and Mr. Bruce and John Everlove-Jones take pleasure in announcing the adoption of their new babies William Robert and Lea Ann,'" the message continues.
"Perhaps Bruce and John will even be teachers for your children or grandchildren; or coaches; or maybe even church youth pastors. Their children, who, sadly, have been indoctrinated to believe that they may 'be gay' and that homosexual sex is just fine will be influencing your children and grandchildren," the action alert says.
"Think about it," the Campaign for California Families urged. "Perhaps someday soon a boy will ask your son or grandson out for 'a date.'
"After all, they say, 'gay marriage' is good and natural and state-approved. Ultimately, we will be able to rid ourselves of old-fashioned, Judeo-Christian, and wrong-headed traditional values, and instead celebrate the wonderful warm togetherness of diversity and rainbow love completely absent moral standards or concerns for health."
The Campaign for California Families warns that such a "twisted world" will become reality if California Assemblyman Mark Leno, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, and the homosexual advocates within the state have their way.
Assemblyman Leno, on Feb. 12, introduced a homosexual "marriage" bill in the California State Assembly. AB 1967 is co-authored by 19 Democrat lawmakers, CCF noted, and if it passes, it would make same-sex "marriage" legal in California.
But, said CCF, the proposed bill "completely rejects the vote of the people," who on March 7, 2000, passed a referendum (Proposition 22), which says only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.
The Campaign for California Families warned that what's happening in San Francisco "will soon become a very real part of your life and the lives of your family and loved ones -- unless you act now."
CCF recommends that concerned citizens let Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and their elected representatives know (by phone and by email) that they oppose any bill legalizing same-sex "marriage.
The message also includes a fundraising pitch for CCF and a plea to spread the word about stopping same-sex "marriage."
The Campaign for California Families is not only mobilizing opposition to same-sex marriage in California, it is also taking the battle to court.
On Feb. 13, with the help of Liberty Counsel and the law firm of Lively & Ackerman, the Campaign for California Families filed a lawsuit in San Francisco to block and dissolve the invalid and unlawful marriage certificates issued in that city.
That court hearing is scheduled to begin Tuesday, Feb. 17, at 11 a.m. (California time).
