DONT LET THE RIGHT WING TAKE AWAY YOUR RIGHTS!
I received this in another group I'm in:

The Senate is scheduled to vote on the Federal Marriage Amendment on Monday, June 5th. The
right-wing is attempting to enshrine discrimination in the U.S. Constitution. (On Pride month no less!)
Why you should care about the FMA:

If this amendment passes:

a.. Discrimination against same-sex couples will be enshrined for generations
b.. We will lose the potential for civil unions, domestic partnerships, even partner insurance
benefits
c.. The right-wing extremists will learn they can get away with demonizing us - and they'll find
new ways to hold us back
The Task Force and HRC have set up online petitions and postcard campaigns that will automatically
be sent to your congresspeople...its easy, so take advantage.

Ask Dont Tell" here:
