S.J. Res. 26!
Last night, two days
before Thanksgiving, five US Senators* introduced Senate Joint
Resolution 26, a harmful and divisive Senate counterpart to the
anti-gay "Federal Marriage Amendment" that has been
unfortunately gaining support in the House since May. This
resolution seeks to amend the U.S. Constitution to discriminate against
GLBT families by defining marriage as between a man and a woman.
*Wayne Allard, R-Colo.; Sam Brownback, R-Kan.; Jim Bunning, R-Ky.; James
Inhofe, R-Okla.; and Jeff Sessions, R-Ala. introduced the resolution.
It is vital that you
contact your Senators at their district office and urge them to oppose
S.J. Res. 26! Your Senators need to hear from you while they're in
their district offices throughout the month of December!

The amendment seeks to
permanently deny the right to marry, as well as virtually all other
forms of legal recognition to same-sex couples, including the most basic
legal protections. It further seeks to circumvent the right of state
legislatures and courts to make decisions on basic
government-administered protections, thereby forever denying gay and
lesbian Americans fundamental rights and benefits such as hospital
visitation, Social Security, inheritance and health care benefits.
The opposition is gearing
up with phone calls and letters and we need to do the same. Please call
your Senators today!
