Equality advocates in Tennessee CAN influence the course of marriage equality elsewhere in our country. Today is the only day to act!
Today's message to members of the Family Action Council:
Let your voices be heard on marriage!? ?Today is our only day to speak up.
81% of Tennesseeans voted to make marriage between one man and one woman, but the federal court ruling in California that marriage violates the U.S. Constitution will make your vote null and void – our law will be unconstitutional too if the court ruling is upheld.
Several Attorneys General from other states will be filing an amicus brief today, Friday, in the now infamous Perry v. Schwarzenegger case regarding the constitutionality of Proposition 8 in California.
Tennessee’s attorney General, Bob Cooper, has received a copy of the Amicus brief and been asked if he wanted to sign on and join the effort to protect marriage. We have learned that as of yesterday (Thursday) he had not agreed to "sign on" in support of marriage.
He wouldn’t stand against the national health care mandate.
Don't let him fail to stand for marriage too.
URGENT ACTION NEEDED:?
Please contact Tennessee’s Attorney General, Bob Cooper, and ask him to join the Perry v. Schwarzenegger Attorneys General Amicus Brief to defend Tennessee’s right to be a sovereign state and define marriage as one man and one woman.
You may reach his office at: (307) 777-7841. All you need to tell the switch board operator is "Please let General Cooper know that I am in favor of him signing on to the Attorneys General brief in favor of marriage in the Perry case."
Please forward this to all your like-minded friends and family members. He must sign on by the end of today. There is no time to lose!
