Support marriage measures

A vote will not change what marriage is. People pretending will not change what marriage is. The only form of marriage that has worked best through the ages has been a marriage between one man and one woman.

It was meant to preserve and propagate our world, protect women and prepare children for a stable society. True marriage also validates men as men and values men as necessary to children and women.

In the next few weeks, the people of the state of Washington will have the chance to petition to vote on this important matter. If you believe marriage is between one man and one woman, get a copy of Initiative 1192 and Referendum 74 and sign them today.
