Idaho--Calls Needed to Support Marriage

From the HSLDA E-lert Service...

February 9, 2006

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

Now is your opportunity to support traditional marriage.

The Idaho House has already passed House Joint Resolution 2, which
allows a marriage amendment to go to the voters this upcoming
election. HJR 2 is now in the Senate State Affairs Committee.

If HRJ 2 is passed by both the House and Senate, the issue will go to
the people and you will have the opportunity to vote for traditional
marriage during the next elections.

HRJ 2 states:

"The question to be submitted to the electors of the State of Idaho
at the next general election shall be as follows:

Shall Article III, of the Constitution of the State of Idaho be
amended by the addition of a new Section 28, to provide that a
marriage between a man and a woman is the only domestic legal union
that shall be valid or recognized in this state?"

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 Idaho 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
and allow same sex marriages.

Action Requested:

Call as many members of the Senate State Affairs Committee members
below and give them this message:

"Please vote for HJR 2. Give citizens an opportunity to have their
voices heard in support of preserving traditional marriage."

You do not need to identify yourself as a homeschooler.

-> Extreme makeovers are for extreme circumstances...

Most homeschools don't need an extreme makeover, but there is
something to be said for attention to detail and recognition of
accomplishments. Watch the media and you'll soon see that not
everyone wants home educators and homeschooling to look good.
HSLDA works hard to shed light on the good work of home educators
so it's obvious that we don't need someone "making-over" our
homeschools. Join HSLDA and help us show the world that we're fine
as we are . . . thank you!
