Arkansas--Calls Needed to Support Traditional Marriage!

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

Did you know that the City of Eureka Springs is issuing Domestic
Partner Certificates to unmarried couples? This flies in the face of
the Arkansas Marriage Amendment approved by 75% of voters in 2004
which states in part, "Legal status for unmarried persons which is
identical or substantially similar to marital status shall not be
valid or recognized in Arkansas . . . ."

Tomorrow the House of Representatives is expected to vote on House
Bill 2176, which would prohibit any local government from creating a
domestic partnership registry or any other certification process that
conflicts with the Arkansas Constitution. Homosexuals have mounted an
aggressive lobbying effort to defeat this bill. Your calls and emails
are needed to show state representatives that the vast majority of
Arkansans still support traditional marriage.

Time is short! Please contact your representatives today and urge
them to support this important legislation.

ACTION REQUESTED:
(1) Please call and/or email your state representative and urge him or
her to vote in favor of House Bill 2176 with this message:

"Please vote for House Bill 2176, which would help preserve
traditional marriage in Arkansas. Local governments should not be
permitted to recognize domestic partnerships that are contrary to the
Arkansas Constitution."

(2) Please forward this email to every family you know who is not a
member of HSLDA and urge them to contact their state representatives
with this same message.

You can find the name and contact information for your state
representative by going to the Arkansas legislature's website at
http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=6323 .

You can leave a message for your state representative at the Capitol
by calling (501) 682-6211.

Let your voice be heard today!


Sincerely,

Dewitt T. Black, III
Senior Counsel
HSLDA
