Marriage and the Election

by : Rusty Ford

Dear Friends of Marriage,

There is a lot of talk on both sides in this election that this is the most important election this century. Most of this is exaggeration to try and motivate people to vote for one candidate or the other. But in one area this is true.

Depending on who wins this election, marriage as we know it may never be the same. In the last debate President Bush said he was for a marriage amendment because you cannot trust activist judges on the court. We have already begun to see this happen. On October 5 a Louisiana judge voided the constitutional amendment that was passed this past spring by the State Leislature and passed the public vote by 78%.

After Novembers election over one third of the states will have a constitutional amendment or law defining marriage as being between one man and one woman. Senator Kerry when ask the same question about a marriage amendment sighted the number of states with laws or amendments as reason to not have a constitutional amendment. This argument sound great but now we see that the courts could over rule all these laws and amendments.

While it is uncertain that we will get a constitutional amendment it is very important that we have the right judges appointed. Senator Kerry stated in the debate that he would only appoint judges who supported abortion. As we have all seen in the past pro abortion judges are almost always extremely liberal and are the types of judges that do not support marriage.

If you support marriage as being between one man and one woman it is imperative that you vote in this election and encourage as many people who believe in families to also vote. It looks as if this is going to be a close election and voter turn out will most likely make a difference.

Please do not let the homosexual community and their undying support for the Democrats steal this election and destroy family as we have know it for over 6000 years.
