Texas--Calls Needed to Support Marriage

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

Your calls are making an impact. However, there are four key senators
that have not made a decision. We need you to call them immediately in
order to protect marriage in Texas.

The Texas House has already passed House Joint Resolution 6, which
allows a marriage amendment to go to the voters this November. HJR 6
is now in the Senate State Affairs Committee.

If HRJ 6 is passed by both the House and Senate,

"This proposed constitutional amendment shall be submitted to the
voters at an election to be held November 8, 2005. The ballot shall be
printed to permit voting for or against the proposition:

"The constitutional amendment providing that marriage in this state
consists only of the union of one man and one woman and prohibiting
this state or a political subdivision of this state from creating or
recognizing any legal status identical or similar to marriage."

Your right to homeschool rests on another freedom: the freedom to
direct the education and upbringing of your children. Your parental
rights, in turn are supported by the sanctity of marriage. Anything
that undermines marriage may ultimately undermine parental rights.

Amending the Texas constitution will protect the concept of marriage
from activist state judges. Without this amendment, an activist judge
out of step with the citizens will one day redefine marriage for us.


Call these four key senators and this give them this message:

"Please vote for HJR 6. Give citizens an opportunity to have their
voices heard in support of preserving marriage."

You do not need to identify yourself as a homeschooler.

Sen. Eddie Lucio, Jr.

Sen. Frank Madla

Sen. Leticia Van de Putte

Sen. Judith Zaffirini

Thank you for standing with us for freedom.

-> Is customer service an art or a science?

For us, good customer service is both an art and a science
-it should appeal to our members and be effective. Consider what
our members say about us:

We're thankful for the support HSLDA membership provides us. We'd
never homeschool without them. We highly recommend HSLDA to all
homeschoolers. - North Tonawanda, NY

I cannot imagine our homeschool journey without HSLDA's strong
leadership, protection, and guidance. God bless HSLDA!
