Minnesotans in favor of a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage: Call your State Representatives.


The Senate will vote at 10:30 a.m. tomorrow, Wednesday, May 11, on the final passage of the constitutional amendment that would ask voters to permanently ban marriage rights for same-sex couples in 2012. This vote cannot by vetoed by Governor Dayton.
.
It may be important to call your senator and tell him/her to vote yes to the amendment! All you need to know is your zip code. Just dial this toll-free number:
.
1.855.508.6473.  
.
This number connects you to the gay activist organization, OutFront Minnesota.  Don't worry, their system will automatically connect you with your elected officials; after enduring a short pro-same-sex propaganda statement, you will be directed on how to contact your representative after keying in your zip code.  From thereon follow the the prompts and you will be conveniently connected directly to your Minnesota State Representative and Senator — all toll-free. You can call in more than once to reach both of your legislators.  I actually have 3 in my district and I was able to urge them to vote YES for passage of the amendment.  You need to give your full name, zip, address and I'd leave a call back number as well.
.
If you're unable to speak with your senator, be sure to leave a voicemail. Tell them you're their constituent (which is why you must give your address) and leave them a brief message urging them to say YES to constitutional amendment which will protect Minnesota families, as well as religious freedom.

.
It is vital that undecided and swing vote senators from the suburbs and greater Minnesota hear from their constituents favorable to the amendment. Tell your friends and family who live in these places to contact their senators to vote YES on the amendment! Have them call 1.855.508.6473 tonight and tomorrow morning.

.
Please pray the prayers of the Holy Rosary with the intention the vote on the constitutional amendment is passed.
.
Thanks to Michael Bayly for posting the contact information, although he posted to rally pro-gay marriage supporters and in hopes that the amendment would fail.

  2. Terry, I'm glad my information is of help to you and your readers (although a link to the original post is generally provided in situations like this.) I'm all for people contacting their elected representatives and sharing their perspectives and concerns -- regardless of what they may be.

    Peace,

    Michael

  3. Michael, sorry about the link - I didn't think it was necessary since you had pretty much taken over the combox in the previous post I did on Fr. Echert, I aasumed my readers would be able to click on your name and get right to your site anyway.

    Prayers,

    Terry
