Same Sex "Marriage" Emergency!

They're at it again, and Bill May, of Catholics for the Common Good, is on the case.

Proponents of same-sex "marriage" will not quit until they have overturned the will of the people of California and destroyed marriage. We must act before July 23!

"SACRAMENTO, Calif., July 10, 2007-- AB 43, a bill legalizing marriage between two persons of the same sex, passed the Senate Judiciary Committee on a 3-2 vote. See how the Committee members voted. The bill passed the Assembly in June on a 42-34 vote.

The bill will now be heard in the Senate Appropriations Committee on July 23.

In 2000, California voters passed the California Defense of Marriage Act, Proposition 22, by an overwhelming 61.4% to define marriage as between a man and a woman. It is the very language of this initiative that the legislature is proposing to change.

The bill changes the current legal definition of marriage as "a personal relation arising out of a civil contract between a man and a woman" by removing the words "a man and a woman" and substituting them with " two persons". Any other gender specific references in the bill are made gender neutral, to allow the legal recognition of same-sex marriages. "

Stop this disgracful attempt to destroy marriage and to overturn the 61.4% majority of California voters!

If you live in California, please contact your State Senator and ask him/her to vote NO on AB 43. Click here to find your Senator.
