New Jersey--Same-Sex Marriage--Calls Needed Immediately

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

A same-sex marriage bill is scheduled for a vote in the New Jersey
Senate tomorrow. We need your help!

The situation is even more urgent because Assembly Speaker Joseph
Roberts has announced that if the bill passes the Senate, he will
immediately bring it to a vote on the Assembly floor--bypassing the
usual process of having it scrutinized by a committee.

ACTION REQUESTED

Please call your state senator immediately. Your message can be as
simple as: "Please vote no on same-sex marriage, S 1967. Let the
people decide." Then call your assemblymen with the same message. Use
our legislative toolbox to find your senator and assemblymen.

BACKGROUND

Only the people of New Jersey--and certainly not a lame-duck
legislature--should be in control on an issue as profound as marriage
itself.

Your rights as a parent are not spelled out in the U.S. Constitution.
Instead, they hinge on statements of the U.S. Supreme Court. But the
Supreme Court has said that parental rights are based on "western
civilization concepts of the family" (Troxel v. Granville). So if the
western civilization concept of marriage--one man and one woman--is
undermined, parental rights may shrink or disappear with it.

HSLDA Senior Counsel

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.
