Adventists Against Proposition 8

Proposition 8, which would amend the California State Constitution to define marriage as only between a man and a woman breaches the spirit of religious liberty, separation of church and state, and non-establishment of religion that Adventists have long cherished. By supporting this Proposition to define marriage from a religious perspective the Seventh-day Adventist Church State Council is in danger of imposing their particular religious, theological convictions upon the general public. Adventists in the United States have historically defended the concerns of minority groups (even when they have disagreed with them on specific positions and practices) and have strongly objected to the use of religious arguments and means for establishing even what they consider to be public good. Therefore, we urge the Church State Council to rescind its support for Proposition 8 and encourage Adventists in California to vote “NO” on Proposition 8. NOTE: Only real names provided in full will be recorded. You may sign the petition anonymously in which case you should NOT list your Title and Organization. They WILL show on the signature page.
