Oppose the Federal Marriage Amendment

It is now clear that President Bush and the Republicans will use attacks against gays and lesbians as their 2004 election year strategy.

Recently, President Bush officially declared his support for the Federal Marriage Amendment — a measure that would write discrimination into the United States Constitution.

It's time to stand up and be heard.

We must protect our civil rights and liberties and protect the constitution from the hands of the far-right conservatives.

President Bush can't run on his record, so he'll work to divide Americans on wedge issues like same-sex marriage to ignite his failing campaign. What's worse — he's willing to do it by darkening our Constitution with an amendment that forbids our rights instead of protecting them — the only other amendment to do so was Prohibition.

All of our civil rights are at stake, and we must do everything we can to protect them. Please sign this petition today to oppose the Federal Marriage Amendment - all of our rights depend on it!
Dear President Bush and Members of Congress:

I am outraged at the President's willingness to support the Federal Marriage Amendment. This measure threatens the freedom of all Americans because it denies the civil rights of a whole group of individuals. All Americans deserve equality under the law.

President Bush, I urge you to stop catering to far-right conservatives, and to start showing respect for GLBT families.

Members of Congress, if the President is indeed willing to launch an attack on the civil rights of gay and lesbian Americans, then the responsibility now falls on you to defend the rights of the people all of the people. As my elected representative I urge you to fulfill your duty to your constituents by opposing the Federal Marriage Amendment. Any attempt to amend the constitution for the sole purpose of denying freedoms to a minority of Americans is an attempt to deny equality for all Americans.
