Dear Marriage Supporter,
Representative Cathy Connolly (D-Laramie) is sponsoring House Bill 169, which would redefine marriage as a civil contract between "two natural persons," rather than between a man and a woman, as the state law now reads.
And, to make matters worse, three Republican State Representatives have jumped on board. Reps. Keith Gingery and Ruth Ann Petroff of Jackson are behind the bill; and Rep. Sue Wallis (R-Recluse) is one of the bill’s co-sponsors.
With the Supreme Court hearing cases on same-sex marriage in just a few short weeks, any action in favor of same-sex marriage would send a bad signal to the entire nation. Today, you and the pro-marriage citizens of Wyoming can send a message loud and clear to the political powers in Cheyenne: DON'T MESS WITH MARRIAGE!
I need your help to stop same-sex marriage from coming to Wyoming. In fact, I need you to specifically do three things — none of which will take much time at all, and can make a huge difference.
First, click here to contact these three Republican legislators, as well as your own state legislators and urge them to oppose House Bill 169 or any other proposed legislation that would redefine marriage in Wyoming.
Second, please call these three Republicans and urge them to oppose this legislation and take a stand to defend marriage.
|Keith Gingery||Home: (307) 734-5624|
|Ruth Ann Petroff||Work: (307) 734-9446||Cell: (307) 690-3392|
|Sue Wallis||Home: (307) 685-8248||Cell: (307) 680-8515|
And third — and this is just as important — I need you to forward this message to as many people as possible throughout the state. As we have seen in so many places, just a handful of citizens courageously standing up to defend marriage can make a tremendous impact. But we need your help to get the word out.
Marriage is too important a matter to be left to the whims of heavily lobbied politicians and the special interest groups padding their pockets. Please be a part of the millions of faithful American throughout the country who believe in and stand up for marriage as God ordained it.
We need to act, and act as one, to send this important message to our elected officials in Cheyenne in time to make an impact. Tell them that the eyes of the state are watching, and that we will not stand idly by while the most basic institution in society — the marriage of one man and one woman — is threatened by a radical agenda.
Stand for marriage, Wyoming!
