Take Action to Save Marriage

Here’s something specific you can do-a recommendation from Austin Ruse of  the Culture of Life Foundation.

In two weeks the US Senate will vote on the future of marriage. Over the July 4th Senate recess, your US Senator absolutely must hear your views on this vital issue. THIS IS HIGHLY URGENT. IT CANNOT WAIT.

This will be one of the most important phone calls or visits you will make this year.

Here are the reasons marriage needs protecting right now. [Below that is a list of targeted Senators and their IN-STATE office telephone numbers.]

Reasons Marriage Must be Protected Right Now

State judges in Massachusetts have set in motion what will bring catastrophe to children, adults and all of society. They have forced their citizens to accept homosexual marriage. This action will eventually, sooner rather than later, force other states to accept same-sex marriage. This will force you to accept homosexual marriage.

What the Massachusetts judges have forgotten, what all the proponents of same-sex marriage have forgotten, is that every child has the right to a mother and a father.

Society’s experience of the divorce culture over the past few decades abundantly proves the wisdom that every child has the right to a mother and a father. The only coupling that allows for children to know a mother and a father is the one between a man and a woman. Two men cannot provide both mothering and fathering. Neither can two women. Only a man and a woman can provide children with this basic right.

Some will say you are a bigot for supporting the notion that children have a right to a mother and a father. Let them. Move on. They will not be convinced. Where you need to make your voice heard, right now, is in the US Senate.

What You Need To Do Over the Next Several Days

The US Senate will take up the Federal Marriage Amendment the week of July 12. The Federal Marriage Amendment will ensure the protection of children through the protection of marriage. The Federal Marriage Amendment will ensure what we all know in our bones: that marriage is only and ever the union of one man and one woman.
 
Over the July 4th Senate recess every US Senator will be in his or her home state. They will be at public meetings. They will be in their home-state offices. It is in their home state where you must be heard. It is where they will listen.
 
Each of you must contact your Senator no matter where you live. But there is a list of Senators who absolutely must be contacted. The list is just below. This is the list of Senators who have not decided on the question of protecting traditional marriage and children. These US Senators are sitting on the fence. It is your job to gently move them to the right side.

Do not be shy. Call their home state offices and let them know where you stand. Find out where they are publicly appearing and tell them there.
 
Tell them where you stand on traditional marriage. Tell them that marriage is only for a man and a woman. Tell them that the lives of children are at stake. Tell them that you support the Federal Marriage Amendment.

Please friends, be brave. Do it with a friend, your spouse, your children. If you live in any of the following states, you must contact one or both of your Senators over the July 4th Senate recess.

Do it, friend. Our country depends upon your action now.
