Florida--Signatures Needed for Marriage Petition

======================================================================
From the HSLDA E-lert Service...
======================================================================


February 16, 2006

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

In order to place a marriage amendment on the ballot for the 2008
elections, the Florida Coalition to Protect Marriage needs another
155,000 signatures to make the goal of 611,009 petitions.

Brenda Dickinson of the Home Education Foundation has worked
tirelessly to help gather thousands of signatures.

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 Florida 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.

The full text of the amendment is:

Be it enacted by the people of Florida that:
A new section for Article I is hereby created to add the following:

Inasmuch as marriage is the legal union of only one man and one woman
as husband and wife, no other legal union that is treated as marriage
or the substantial equivalent thereof shall be valid or recognized.

ACTION REQUESTED:

Take a moment now and download and sign the petition from this
website: http://www.florida4marriage.org/, or call (407) 251-1957 to
request the petition.

Thank you in advance for your commitment to the protection of marriage
in Florida.

Sincerely,


Chris Klicka
HSLDA Senior Counsel
