Anti-Family agENDA

A bill coming up for a vote in the Senate next-week innocuously named the "Employee Non-Discrimination Act of 2013 (ENDA)" is nothing other than a Trojan horse built to attack the foundational institution of marriage between a man and a woman.

Please contact the Senate right away and let them know where you stand on this egregiously flawed law. Urge them to reject ENDA and to preserve pro-marriage Americans' rights to speak, vote, donate, or act in defense of marriage as the union of a man and a woman. In addition to our Senators what’s their names in MA, please also call these important swing voters;

Senator John McCain (R.-AZ) - 202-224-2235
Senator Rob Portman (R.-OH) - 202-224-3353
Senator Orrin Hatch (R.-UT) - 202-224-5251
Senator Kelly Ayotte (R.-NH) - 202-224-3324
Senator Jeff Flake (R.-AZ) - 202-224-4521
Senator Dean Heller (R.-NV) - 202-224-6244
Senator Pat Toomey (R.-PA) - 202-224-4254
Senator John Barrasso (R.-WY) - 202-224-2946

Ask for a legislative staffer if you get through, or leave a voicemail to make sure these senators know where the majority of Americans stand on this dangerous bill. Here are some talking points to guide your discussion:

"I oppose ENDA because it is a threat to religious liberty, workplace civility, and traditional marriage."

"This bill will be used to bully and intimidate traditionally-minded citizens and organizations like we've already seen occurring in states that have passed they own ENDA-type laws."

"Believers in traditional marriage are already threatened with stigmatization by the reckless wording of Justice Kennedy's DOMA decision, and this bill will put them in even more danger of being labeled bigots or haters by those who disagree with them."

"Employees nationwide shouldn't feel that their workplaces are hostile environments just because of their belief in marriage."

"This bill will almost certainly be used as a tool for pushing a nationwide redefinition of marriage."
