Support the Marriage Protection Amendment
March 6, 2006 Refer a Friend

To date voters in 19 states have acted to protect marriage as the union of a man and a woman. The message to the rest of the country and to our U.S. Senators is clear: citizens everywhere are in strong support of this most sacred institution. Despite this progress, the courts still pose a direct threat to the democratic process. Consider Nebraska.

Nebraska was one of the first states in 2000 not only to protect marriage, but also to do so in its state constitution. While over 70 percent of Nebraska voters approved amending the constitution, a single federal judge overturned everything Nebraskans worked so hard to accomplish. The judge's decision makes a mockery of the phrase "We the People" that begins the U.S. Constitution.

President Bush, affirming his support for the Marriage Protection Amendment, said, "After more than two centuries of American jurisprudence, and millennia of human experience, a few judges and local authorities are presuming to change the most fundamental institution of civilization." An amendment to the U.S. Constitution is the only way to curb permanently the power and ambition of judges, who discard the work of our Founders and the will of most Americans.

The vote in the U.S. Senate is currently scheduled for the week of June 5, 2006. We have time to make a difference - and we must. Please sign this petition in support of the Marriage Protection Amendment. We will deliver these petitions to your Senator prior to the vote. Let your voice be heard.

Without this amendment, liberal courts are likely to mandate homosexual "marriage." When that occurs, every institution in American society will be pressured to change and to accept, even honor, this new civil right. Churches will be harassed. Schools will be infused with literature and history textbooks that praise homosexuality and insist it is normative. Our already eroding culture will accelerate its decline. Marriage will ultimately be abolished. The lessons from overseas are clear.

The time to act is now - while we have time. I ask you, from the bottom of my heart, to sign our petition and to join with tens of thousands of your fellow Americans who are responding when their country needs them. It does no good to defend our civilization in foreign lands only to lose it here at home. Please do your part, and may God bless you and your family.


Petition to U.S. Senators for Preserving Traditional One-Man/One-Woman Marriage in America


Sincerely,
Tony Perkins
President

P.S. It's essential that we have a massive show of support for the Marriage Protection Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Please sign our petition to the U.S. Senate and forward this message, today, to your friends. When our voices are heard, Congress will act.

Isn’t this the same argument that was used against integration? That one day society would be forced to accept that Blacks are equal?

I really doubt that marriage will be abolished – especially since that’s what the homosexual community is after…

And… umm… excuse my ignorance… but, what are “the lessons from overseas”?
