Illinois--Calls Needed to Support Traditional Marriage

From the HSLDA E-lert Service...

February 10, 2006

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

Now is your opportunity to support traditional marriage.

Senator Brady has introduced Senate Joint Resolution 70, which allows
a marriage amendment to go to the voters this upcoming election. SJR
70 is now in the Senate Rules Committee.

If SJR 70 is passed by both the Senate and House, the issue will go to
the people and you will have the opportunity to vote for traditional
marriage during the next election.

The main part of SJR 70 reads:

"...[T]here shall be submitted to the electors of the State for
adoption or rejection at the general election next occurring at least
6 months after the adoption of this resolution a proposition to add
Section 9 to Article XIII of the Illinois Constitution as follows:

Only marriage between one man and one woman shall be valid or
recognized in Illinois. The uniting of persons of the same sex in a
civil union, domestic partnership, or other similar same sex
relationship shall not be valid or recognized in Illinois."

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 Illinois 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.

Action Requested:

Please call the members of the Senate Rules Committee listed below and
give them this message:

"Please vote for SJR 70. 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.

Senate Rules Committee members:

Chairperson: Louis S. Viverito

John J. Cullerton

Rickey R. Hendon

Edward Petka

Peter J. Roskam (is strongly supporting the marriage amendment)
217-782- 8022

Thank you for standing with us for freedom.

When a social service worker arrives at your door, tension can run
high. Wouldn't it be nice to get your lawyer on the phone,
providing you with immediate step-by-step guidance?
