Dear Marriage Supporter,
As the legislature returns to Springfield, powerful elites—from Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel to President Obama himself—are pressing lawmakers to approve a measure that would redefine marriage and jeopardize the rights of religious believers across the state.
While most citizens in the Land of Lincoln have been celebrating the Christmas and New Year holidays, gay marriage activists have been busy contacting legislators and lobbying in support of SSM.
The bill is now scheduled for a Senate committee vote as early as this evening.
Have you contacted your state senator and representative yet?
Even better would be a phone call, if you have the time to spare. Letting your voice be heard by your elected legislators is the best way to ensure that they get the marriage loud and clear: the people of Illinois do not want marriage redefined!
So, even if you have already sent your email message (thank you!), please take a moment to make two short phone calls today as well.
The Democratic leadership in Springfield is trying to railroad this bill through during the lame duck session. Our best chance to stop this measure is to get the word out, prompting a massive groundswell of opposition from every corner of the state.
So please call your legislators right now, and then help us spread the word, using the buttons below to post this email to Facebook and Twitter, and forward it to all of your friends and family across the state. Together, we can resist this radical legislative action and all of the disastrous consequences it would entail—but only if we act right away!
I know I can count on you to help. Thank you!
