“I promise you this: The only thing that will ‘confine’ the Court’s holding is its sense of what it can get away with.”
— Justice Scalia about the Supreme Court’s intent to redefine marriage.
All eyes are on Utah to see how we will respond to same-sex marriage being imposed on us. Do citizens care that we have been vetoed from the bench? Will we arise to protect one of the most foundational rocks of society?
Or are we just too busy? Or unaware of its enormous implications?
National media has commented that even when same-sex marriage is imposed on a religious state like Utah, the citizens don’t raise their voices. In the face of this assault upon family, religious freedom and state sovereignty, they think that Utahans just don’t care.
We now find ourselves in the national spotlight. If Utah’s marriage law falls, the rest of the nation will follow.
The Stand for Marriage-Stand for Amendment 3 event is your chance to show where you stand. We are looking for a crowd of people to come to say, “We stand for family. We stand for marriage. We stand for religious freedom.”
We stand for marriage, not against anyone.
Why do an event?
Because we strengthen each other when we see that we are not isolated or alone in standing for traditional marriage.
Because we will help you understand what you can do in the face of this imposition from the bench.
Because your presence helps to rally state officials to stand.
We not only invite you to come. We need you to come. We need the numbers to be great. This is your chance to manifest where you stand.
When: Tuesday, Jan. 28, 7:00 p.m.
Where: Utah State Capitol Rotunda
Wear pink (or red) or blue so that we can fill the rotunda with our colors.
Speakers include Sean Reyes, Utah Attorney General; Brian Brown, President of the National Organization for Marriage; Robert Oscar Lopez, nationally-renowned voice on the problems with same-sex parenting who was raised in a lesbian household; Wayne Niederhauser, Utah Senate President; and Rebecca Lockhart, Speaker Utah House of Representatives.
When we stand with children, we will always be on the right side of history.
