I just received the following email from the American Family Association and wanted to pass this on for my readers. I hope many of you will take the time to call Senator Obama.
Senator Obama opposes Marriage Protection Amendment
Senator Barack Obama is expected to vote against the Marriage Protection Amendment which comes up for a vote in the Senate on June 6. Please call Senator Obama today and tell him to vote for the MPA. If his lines are busy, please keep trying. He needs to hear from you personally.
This means he would prefer that a single activist federal judge have the authority to wipe out Illinois' state law that defines marriage as only between one man and one woman.
A vote for the Marriage Protection Amendment is a vote for traditional marriage. A vote against the MPA (which Obama has indicated he will do) is a vote for homosexual marriage by an activist Federal judge.
Senator Obama needs to hear from you today! Call him. If the line is busy, keep calling.
Remember that no matter what Senator Obama says, the bottom line is this: If he votes against the Marriage Protection Amendment, he is voting for the legalization of homosexual marriage by activist judges.
Here are his phone numbers. We suggest you call the District Office if it is a local call, or call the Washington office if no local number is available.
If you have called in the past, please call again and remind the Senator that supporting this amendment is very important to the voters in his state.
