Fw: Marriage Takes Another Hit-help rally support for a constitutional amendment.

Vertical Politics Institute
Today the Vermont legislature attacked traditional marriage by voting (by only one vote) to override Governor Douglas' veto. Vermont becomes the fourth state to legalize same sex marriage. The other three states, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Iowa did so by judicial rulings. Now the Vermont legislature has joined in the assault on the most critical foundation in our society - the American family.

Governor Douglas, when he vetoed the original legislation on Monday, said "I believe that marriage should remain between a man and a woman." I agree with Governor Douglas. We must not continue to undermine the traditional American family. Once again, the right to decide an issue of such importance has been taken out of the hands of the voter.

The actions of the Vermont Legislature, coming on the heels of the judicial ruling by the Iowa Supreme Court, should make it apparent to each of us that conservative values and conservative principles are under attack as never before. We must take action now.

It is up to each of us who believe in traditional marriage to increase our efforts to protect the foundation of our society. I continue to support a constitutional amendment defining marriage as between one man and one woman. It is now an absolute necessity. We must stop the liberal legislatures and activist judges from undermining the moral fabric of our society. Fighting for passage of a constitutional amendment is critical to conservative principles.

Join me in waging the battle for the protection of the family - help rally support for a constitutional amendment. 

Fighting for our principles
