Oppose the Federal Marriage Amendment sign now

On Thursday, July 12, 2001 the group, Alliance for Marriage, announced their proposal for a CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT entitled "The Federal Marriage Amendment." The purpose of this amendment, according to the AFM, is to strengthen American families and reintegrate the role of a strong father figure. Realistically, though, this is a thinly veiled attempt to federally ban gay marriages in the US. According to the Alliance for Family, this Amendment would add the following two sentences to our Constitution:

"Marriage in the United States shall consist only of the union of a man and a woman."

"Neither this Constitution or the constitution of any state, nor state or federal law, shall be construed to require that marital status or the legal incidents thereof be conferred upon unmarried couples or groups."

This would eliminate Vermont's Civil Union bill and the future that ANY states have to institute a similar bill. This could also leave the door open to the abolition of domestic partner benefits in the future.
NOW is not the time to take steps BACK in reinforcing and embracing diversity in our country.Nor is it the time to give in to groups who are trying to hide behind the wall of "Family Values" when they are undermining the very root of it. They are not only seeking to destroy loving couples and families, but they are asking you to be the enforcers in violating basic human rights of your gay tax payers and voters.

So, please DO NOT give in to such a blatant attempt to discriminate against EQUAL citizens of this country.

    Such an amendment would be a direct violation of the separation of church and state. This is nothing more than bigotry and racism hidden behind one groups interpretation of family values. If these people really had any sense of what values mean then they
