R-71 is on the November ballot. Judge McPhee denied, for a second time, the allegations that R-71 did not qualify. Judge Spector had earlier denied the same allegations.
People in the press have told me they think it is a miracle that we made it. The Secretary of State's office says, of the R-71 signature -checking process it "is probably unprecedented in nearly a century ---of initiatives and referenda." Unprecedented in 100 years.
The final official count is 121,780 valid signatures. We needed 120,577.
It is a miracle.
And it is clear how God performed it.
It happened through people like you who stood with us with you financial support, prayerful support and your action in circulating petitions to your circle of friends and those in your community. We were not dissuaded by those who referred to us a "leaderless army" predicting failure or those who had more money and attempted to keep R-71 off the ballot.
It will be through people like you that the miracle will continue.
We have only 7 weeks to educate the public to the reality that SB 5688 removes all legal differences between Domestic Partnerships and marriage. If this bill becomes law, the stage will be set for a lawsuit that will demand the word " marriage" for same-sex partners on the basis of discrimination. Marriage will be redefined and DOMA will be irrelevant.
Your donation today will allow the miracle to continue. We need money now to print educational materials that will help the public understand what is at stake in this matter. We also need to place ads on radio and television.
If you have a mind and heart to defend what is good and right in our culture, this is the time to do what you are able to do. It is also a time to forward this to anyone you feel would be willing to help us at this time.
