Arizona -- Marriage Amendment on November 7 Ballot


Dear HSLDA members and friends:

The general election ballot on November 7, 2006, will include a very
important proposed amendment to the Arizona Constitution. In
Proposition 107 voters are asked to approve a constitutional amendment
to recognize and define marriage only as a union between one man and
one woman. Under Proposition 107 no other union would be valid and no
legal status for unmarried persons shall be created or recognized by
Arizona.

How does defining marriage as being between one man and one woman
potentially affect your right to homeschool your children?

Here is what the Supreme Court said in 2000 in the case of Troxel v.
Granville:

"Our jurisprudence historically has reflected Western civilization
concepts of the family as a unit with broad parental authority over
minor children. Our cases have consistently followed that course."

Thus, parental rights are based on "western civilization concepts of
the family." When those concepts are no longer the legal definition of
the family in this nation, then the foundation upon which parental
rights are based is completely removed. Therefore, HSLDA will continue
to fight against same-sex marriage. Same-sex marriage attacks the
traditions of the family in western civilization. This is an attack on
parental rights. This is a battle the homeschooling movement cannot
afford to lose.

Please vote in favor of the amendment to define marriage in Arizona as
between one man and one woman. It's important to every traditional
family.

reasons to support the amendment, please go to:

Very truly yours,

Thomas J. Schmidt

We don't know! But we do know that gathering little by little
enables ordinary folks to prepare for hard times. That principle
is behind HSLDA's payment plan: by paying a month at a time,
families can receive an annual HSLDA membership. Meanwhile, they
can feel secure as they homeschool and focus on other priorities
-- their children. Don't go nuts trying to pay for membership all
at
once. Choose one of our convenient payment plans.
