This is a copy of an email that I just sent out to all of my friends, etc... I have decided to share it with my friends here on LDS.net and request your support as well in defending traditional marriage.
I hope you will take the time to read this and join with me in protecting the family. I am confident that if we pull together - we can accomplish great things.
To My Friends, of which I consider you all -
As many of you know, leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints have invited members living in California, to do all that [they] can to support the passing of Proposition 8. It is my personal desire to follow this admonition and I am inviting you to join with me in speaking out on this issue...
I am writing to ask each one of you to help me get the word out about the potential affects that the on-going legalization of same-sex marriage will have on all of our children and future posterity. This is a serious issue for those of us who believe that the only definition of marriage is between a man and a woman - and is ordained of God.
This issue does not only affect citizens in California. What happens in California - will not stay in California. This is a subject that should concern all of us and for which we have been asked to expend out very best efforts in behalf.
Those of us who desire to defend traditional marriage must have our voices heard. Not just that we simply support traditional marriage, but the specific reasons that we do so; and for which we are very adamant about! I am a firm believer that education is the key to defending the family right now.
That is why I am writing to you my friends, family and associates. I have written and published online an article on these very important points, and need you now - to come in and show your support by helping to circulate "The Truth About Same-Sex Marriage, Equal Rights and Your Children".
This article is intended to help others understand the critical reasons that we must protect the family, through the defense of traditional marriage. This article also addresses the very distorted parallel that is being drawn between same-sex marriage and issues of racial discrimination. This is not an equal rights issue. Do you understand why?
In order for this article to be seen by as many people as possible, it needs to be read and shared by more people. That is where each of you can help. Currently this article has been read over 500 times, but that is still not enough.
Each one of us are most familiar with how effective "viral" email can be when we want to share something important, funny or interesting with others. Many of us receive from each other - more of these types emails than we can possible count.
I am inviting each one of you to read the article that I have written and email it to your family, friends and associates and then ASK them, to do the SAME!
1. READ THE ARTICLE. "The Truth About Same-Sex Marriage, Equal Rights and Your Children"!
2. Give it a BIG THUMBS UP - and comment if you would like to add your verbal support. Very important if you would be willing to do so.
3. Share it with others by sending it via email and ask them to do the VERY same. You could even include this letter along with the article, OR forward this entire email. You all are certainly familiar with this action:-)
That's it... and you have added your support and voice in defending traditional marriage in a very important way -- Truth. As I said before, educating others is the key to success. Helping other good people understand the seriousness of this issue is how each one of us can be most effective in the defense of marriage.
