Yes on 8 signs targeted in Covina

17845-yeson8-thumb-300x300.jpg

It’s a typical late October campaign stunt — steal signs of the opposition. This year’s target happens to be Yes on Proposition 8 signs from several homes in Covina, officials said.

If passed, Prop 8 would ban gay marriage in California. In official language: “Only a marriage between a man and a woman would be recognized by the state.

In all as many as 15 residents have been victimized, Covina police Lt. Scott Pierson said. The thefts have all occurred under cover of the night. The homes affected are in a neighborhood bounded by on the east by Hollenbeck Avenue and west by Azusa Avenue. The north and south boundaries are Puente and Edna, Pierson said.

Total monetary value associated with the thefts equaled about $5 per sign, Pierson estimated. Patrolmen will be on the lookout tonight for “campaign workers.”

    Im a CHRISTIAN and Im voting NO on 8!

    Why? Because the funding comes primarily from two out-of-state IDOLATRY groups: THE CATHOLIC CHURCH (who worship Mary) and the MORMONS who worship MEN.

    Since I DO NOT SUPPORT IDOLATRY IN ANY FORM, Im VOTING NO ON 8.

    Dont be fooled by IDOL WORSHIPPERS!. Tell all Christians to vote NO on 8.

    I’m a CHRISTIAN and I’m voting NO on 8.

    Why?

    Because it seems that all the funding has come from false Christian groups like ROMAN CATHOLICS and “MORMONS” both of whom are idolaters (worshiping Men, Mary, beads, little statues of saints, etc).

    IDOLATRY is a worse sin. Voting yes on 8 supports idolatry.

    Christian, Yes on 8

    Idolatry or not, the truth is there are some things that are in agreement with Christianity like Marriage between man and women.

    Supporting gay marriage out of spite is the wrong reason to do so.

    Vote yes on 8 and let the world know, not everybody in the US is moving away from Christ!

    i am a christian(i believe in jesus christ!) and belong to the church of jesus christ of latterday saints. i am only thinking of children and i believe they have the right to be raised by a mother AND a father. of course every situation doesn’t fit that…divorce…single parents..and other things may change that dynamic but i support and sustain measures to protect the family…the union of husband and wife….there is a reason only this union can bare a child.

    Whatever happened to “Seperation of church and state?” What business is it of anyone who marries whom? I’m in an interracial marriage that wouldn’t have happened 40 years ago if someone hadn’t fought against unfairness. Who are we to judge anyone? A same-sex marriage will not threaten your “straight” marriage any more than an interracial marriage will.

    This “story” states that Yes on 8 yard signs in Covina were vandalized. There is no mention of No on 8 signs being vandalized. BOTH ADVOCATES AND OPPONENTS HAD THEIR YARD SIGNS REMOVED OR DEFACED. This is the existential truth, and partisanship cannot change that.

    I am a married lesbian. There were plenty of Yes on 8 signs in my neighborhood and around the city (some illegally posted), but I believe in private property rights, so I did not remove any of them, despite the fact that I took Proposition 8 both seriously and personally.

    Marriage is a civil contract. It is the only area in which society gives clergy authority to act on behalf of the government. In most European countries, a couple goes to “city hall” for the paperwork, and then, if they so choose, have a ceremony in church. This would be more true to the American separation of church and state.

    The proponents of this measure used lies, fears, and extortion–along with the virtually unlimited funds provided by Mormons, the Knights of Columbus, Focus on the Family, et. al. But people are realizing that gay and lesbian persons are not what “they” have been representing us to be, and that rights for some and not for all is unAmerican. It won’t be long until this horrid decision goes away. And no one will be hurt by my–or anyone else’s–marriage.

    p.s. Fix divorce. Fix adultry. Fix spousal abuse. Fix the problems with your own marriages. Those things are a far greater danger to society!

    Christian – YES ON 8. And glad it’s passed.

    One: to all of you who think it’s JUST supported by Catholics and Mormons, it’s NOT. Prop. 8 was and still is supported by Christians around the world, not just two ‘idol worshipping’ groups.

    Two: voting No on 8 would mean changing the definition of marriage, which has always been and always will be between one man and one woman. Our society was built upon that fact; do you really want to tear it down?
