New Legislation to Repeal DOMA

Print Friendly Version of this pagePrint Get a PDF version of this webpagePDF

We are rolling out a campaign to educate the public and hopefully inspire many of you who are already informed, to inform others regarding our effort to REJECT SB 5688.

Please note that we supported R-71 to get SB 5688 on the ballot. You have accomplished that. Now that you have put it on the ballot, we are asking people to vote NO or REJECT SB 5688/Referendum 71. You are to vote no or reject.

We ordered 100,000 flyers yesterday which explain why people should REJECT SB 5688. We have also ordered yard signs that will be available later this week.

I have written an article that has been published in at least one newspaper so far, as an op-ed piece. You read it yesterday. It is now available in a PDF that you can forward to as many people as possible or you may download, print and distribute to friends, family and those in your church. You may also ask your local newspaper to run it as an op-ed article. Click here to download article.

We will likely not have the money necessary to buy large blocks of media time as will the homosexual marriage advocates. However, through a strong grassroots network we were able to put R-71 on the ballot and I believe we can contact a good number of people across the state using the same means. I am equally convinced that as people become aware of what SB 5688 really means to them and their children, they will reject it on the ballot.

Larry Stickney and I are also organizing groups in local precincts to drop off the flyers at homes in each area statewide. We will be reordering flyers as money is available, as we move forward.

Ways to continue the miracle:

1. If everyone who circulated a petition form will, over the month, contact in some way, 100 people to be sure they vote and to be sure they vote to reject SB 5688, that alone will represent nearly a million people.

Nothing is more effective than a personal conversation or contact. The miracle will continue as we take our message to friends, family and colleagues in our communities.

2. We need money to move this forward. I know you know that. Please do what you can. We will move as quickly as we have the funds to do so. Click here to make a donation to the PAC.

3. If you will participate with others from your area in distributing flyers, please let me know by email. Please give me your address and a phone number so we can contact you. Your personal information will be kept in strict confidence, but is necessary for us and the local team to contact you with specifics.

4. Circulate the article I wrote, consider joining the team to distribute flyers in your community and please remember this effort in prayer. I expect unexpected things to happen over the next few weeks as we walk into this phase of our mission together. I am certain God is in control.

Stay focused on the purpose and the principles. Do not be misled or confused. God is not the author of confusion nor of fear. Voices have tried to dissuade us, I am certain they will be heard again.

This is not a time to grow weary in well doing and it is not a time for silence. It is a time to speak.

New Legislation to Repeal DOMA

Today Congressman Jerrold Nadler, D-NY, Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin, D-WI, and Congressman Jared Polis, D-CO. plan to introduce legislation to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).

They plan to hold a press conference this morning at the House Triangle, near the southern steps of the Capitol Building in Washington D.C.

President Obama has assured them and other homosexual activists he will stand with them in their attempt to redefine and deconstruct marriage. The President has said, "I stand by my long standing commitment to work with Congress to repeal the so-called Defense of Marriage Act."

Homosexual activists say their bill has at least 50 or more co-sponsors.

This, again, is not a time to be silent. We will keep you updated as this bill moves forward and at the appropriate time will ask you to contact your Representative.

Be strong. Be prayerful. Be vigilant.

God bless you.
