Religious Freedom Coalition thanks President Bush for action on Federal Marriage Amendment

Feb. 24, 2004 - Washington, DC

Today the President acted firmly and with resolve on the issue of same sex marriage. Speaking from the Roosevelt Room in the White House, President George W. Bush announced his support for an Amendment to the Constitution to define marriage as between one man and one woman. The President stated that: "The union of man and woman is the most enduring human institution, honored and encouraged in all cultures and by every religious faith. Marriage cannot be severed from its cultural, religious or natural roots without weakening the good influence of society today." (Read President's remarks)

Immediately the Religious Freedom Coalition and nearly 70 other social conservative groups sent a letter of thank you to the President. The combined groups, representing tens of millions of Americans stated, "We pledge to you we will do everything in our power to inform and educate our constituents about the importance and urgency of this issue both for the preservation of the family in America as well as the right ordering of our government." (See letter in pdf)

The vast majority of Americans are against same sex marriage and the number opposed is growing every day as they realize its full impact. Homosexual marriage will change all adoption rules, forcing children into homosexual homes they themselves do not want to be a part of. Religious organizations will be forced to accept "married" homosexuals and even provide their "spouses" with medical and other benefits. Every school will be forced to teach "how to" classes on anal and oral sex because it will be a part of "normal" married life.

There was no need to do any polling, the American people are with President George W. Bush on the marriage issue. I honestly believe this single issue will put the President back in the White House for four more years.
