ACTION NEEDED: Tell Legislators to Give People Vote on Indiana Marriage Amendment

 

National Organization for Marriage

Dear Marriage Supporter,

Your legislators need to hear from you today in support of the Indiana Marriage Amendment.

Click here to take action now.

The amendment was passed by the legislature in 2011, and needs just one more legislative approval before going to voters in 2014.

But gay marriage activists and their allies in the media are playing up opposition to the amendment — trying to persuade House and Senate leadership to postpone a vote on the measure. Most recently, a group of liberal clergy — representing groups such as the United Church of Christ, LifeJourney Church (a Metropolitan Community Church whose website indicates it was founded by "18 devout gay Christians"), and The Church Within, among others — gained airtime with a public letter urging the legislature to reject the marriage amendment.

With substantial Republican majorities in both houses, the amendment stands a good chance of passage if brought to a vote, but recent reports indicate that Senate President Pro Tem David Long (R-Fort Wayne) is hedging on whether he will allow the amendment to be voted on in the Senate.

I need you to do two things right now:

  1. Click here to send an email to your state legislators urging them to support the Indiana Marriage Amendment. A copy of your letter will also be sent to Senate President David Long and House Speaker Brian Bosma.

  2. Forward this email to friends and family throughout the state, or use the buttons below to share on Facebook and Twitter. We need a groundswell of public support to make sure legislators know their constituents stand firmly on the side of marriage.

We're on the cusp of a major victory in Indiana, and need your help to make the amendment a reality. Please take action today!
