Oppose Stealthy Attempts to Promote Marriage Discrimination
    #2887401 - 07/13/04 09:49 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

ACLU Action Network Members

Subject:
Oppose Stealthy Attempts to Promote Marriage Discrimination






Even as Senate Republicans appear to be failing in their efforts to write discrimination into the Constitution, leaders of the House of Representatives are gearing up to find alternative backdoor methods to block marriage equality.

House Republican Majority leader Tom DeLay is considering two proposals that take steps toward halting marriage equality. One proposal would block the District of Columbia from recognizing marriages of gay and lesbian couples married in other states. The other would deny the Supreme Court and all other federal courts of the ability to consider any challenges to the anti-gay Defense of Marriage Act.

Both these attempts are crude attempts to force marriage discrimination. The House should reject any attempt to stop marriage equality.

Take Action! Urge your representative to oppose stealthy attempts at marriage discrimination.

Also, because time is short, you can also call your Representative through the Capitol Switchboard at 202 224 3121 or 1-800-839-5276. You can look up their direct number at http://congress.org/congressorg/dbq/officials/directory/directory.dbq?command=congdir

P.S. As mentioned earlier, the Senate is likely to start votes on the Federal Marriage Amendment tomorrow! If you have not already done so, you can send a message to your Senator by clicking below. You can also use the numbers above to call your Senators.

I'm against anything that would deny the Supreme court and all federal courtsthe ability to consider any challenges to any piece of legislation ever.
