Marriage Matters

marriageIn recent weeks and months, state governments, courts, and human rights commissions have tried to take away the safety and livelihood of U.S. citizens, whose only crime is trying to exercise their religious beliefs and First Amendment rights, relative to marriage.

Americans shouldn’t have to fear the government’s retaliation for holding a view on marriage that every major religion shares. The federal government shouldn’t be in the business of retaliation and harassing those who define marriage the same way most states (35) do.

Regardless of how you define marriage, you should agree that Americans on both sides of this divisive issue deserve to be treated with respect. Consequently, Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) has initiated the Marriage and Religious Freedom Act to provide protection for churches, religious groups and individuals.

Urge your U.S. Senators to vote FOR the Marriage and Religious Freedom Act! Thank you.
