Who will be the next governor of California?

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, the former head of the ACLU of Southern California, former Speaker of the California Assembly, and former husband before his wife divorced him over his chronic adultery, says he won’t run for Governor of California in 2010.

This leaves two top contenders for the Democratic nomination: California Attorney General and former governor Jerry Brown vs. San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom.

On the subject of respecting marriage for a man and a woman, Newsom was reelected mayor in 2007 despite his affair with a married woman. More than any mayor in the state or nation, Newsom has led the charge for homosexual “marriages” in the courts, the law and the culture.

What about the other candidates? Jerry Brown also supports homosexual “marriages,” trying to strike down Prop. 8 at the California Supreme Court, and now calling for Prop. 8 to be struck down in federal court.

On the Republican side, major contenders Steve Poizner and Meg Whitman both say they voted yes on Prop. 8. Poizner also says he’s “fine with domestic partnerships and all.”  Whitman says she supports the court validating 18,000 homosexual “marriages,” and also supports homosexual adoptions and homosexual “civil unions” with all the rights of married spouses

Second-rung Republican contenders include former congressman and state senator Tom Campbell, who has been a prominate voice in favor of homosexual “marriages” and against Prop. 8. Another possible Republican candidate is Ventura County supervisor Peter Foy, who supports marriage licenses and marriage rights for only a man and a woman.

Given that 52.3% of California voters said marriage should only be between “a man and a woman” last November, will they remain consistent on this point when voting for their next governor?

But Israel has rejected what is good;
       an enemy will pursue him. 
They set up kings without my consent;
       they choose princes without my approval.
       With their silver and gold
       they make idols for themselves
       to their own destruction.
Hosea 8:3-4 NIV
