Emergency Alert: NY Marriage Vote May Come Tomorrow - Have you called your Senator?

 

Dear Marriage Supporter,

I'm in Albany, New York, where I had the privilege of standing with Rev. Jason McGuire of New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms this afternoon as he delivered 63,000 petitions from New Yorkers urging their senators to oppose the same-sex marriage bill.

Although the New York legislative session was slated to end at midnight tonight, we've just received word that any vote on the same-sex marriage bill has been postponed until at least tomorrow—so it looks like we're headed to overtime.

Your phone calls are needed now more than ever.

There is no reason the Senate should even vote on this bill. Marriage belongs to the people of New York—not just 62 senators under intense pressure from donors, activists and lobbyists. Please call every senator on the list below and urge them to oppose the same-sex marriage bill and instead support a referendum that would give the people of New York the right to vote on marriage.

Tell them it's time to make sure the marriage question goes directly to the people. Let the people vote!

Stephen Saland (518) 455-2411
Andrew Lanza (518) 455-3215
Mark Grisanti (518) 455-3240
Greg Ball (518) 455-3111
John Flanagan (518) 455-2071
Joseph Addabbo (518) 455-2322
Shirley Huntley (518) 455-3531

Then forward this message to everyone you know who lives in New York. The outcome in the New York Senate will have ramifications all across the nation—please take action right now! And if you can't make phone calls today, click here to send your message by email!

It's down to the wire! Please keep praying!

Brian Brown

Faithfully,

Brian Brown

National Organization for Marriage
