A Few Prop 8 Thoughts

I have finally been able to find my way through the post-election dust and fog, and have posted some thoughts on the coalition that supported Prop 8 and one big issue -- perhaps the issue-- that still looms. But the post is not here - you'll find it at Article Vi Blog, which focuses on questions about religion in the public square. I hope you enjoy it.

Remember this from Ezra Taft Benson?

"I testify that wickedness is rapidly expanding in every segment of our
society. It is more highly organized, more cleverly disguised, and more
powerfully promoted than ever before. Secret combinations lusting for
power, gain, and glory are flourishing. A secret combination that seeks
to overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations, and countries is
increasing its evil influence and control over America and the entire
world.

"I testify that as the forces of evil increase under Lucifer's
leadership and as the forces of good increase under the leadership of
Jesus Christ, there will be growing battles between the two until the
final confrontation. As the issues become clearer and more obvious, all
mankind will eventually be required to align themselves either for the
kingdom of God or for the kingdom of the devil. As these conflicts rage,
either secretly or openly, the righteous will be tested. God's wrath
will soon shake the nations of the earth and will be poured out on the
wicked without measure. But God will provide strength for the righteous
and the means of escape; and eventually and finally truth will triumph.

"I testify that it is time for every man to put in order his own house
both temporally and spiritually. It is time for the unbeliever to learn
for himself that this work is true...to walk in all the ways of the
Lord, to use our influence to make popular that which is sound and to
make unpopular that which is unsound. We have the scriptures, the
prophets, and the gift of the Holy Ghost. Now we need eyes that will
see, ears that will hear, and hearts that will hearken to God's
direction."
