Bryant Urges Support for Tennessee Marriage Amendment

Below is the release from former Congressman Ed Bryant on the Tennessee Marriage Amendment. I wholeheartedly support the Tennessee Marriage Amendment, even if my support of Focus on the Family (see the postscript) has waned. While I don't feel the need to get into specifics here, let's just say it mirrors the problems that the ACLJ have experienced related to money, the control of their organization, and staying true to your beliefs. Money should never come between an organization and acting on its beliefs, whether they be the preservation of a Christian America, defending the Second Amendment, ending abortion in our country, or anything else for that matter. That being said, I have nothing but praise for Family Research Council.

Now that I've completely gone off-topic, here is Ed's letter:

Dear friend,

Cyndi and I want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all the support you gave us on the campaign trail. We were blessed to meet so many Tennesseans who were interested in the betterment of our state.

I am writing you today about another way you can help fight for Tennessee's bright future. On the November ballot, you will have the chance to vote on an amendment to define a marriage as being between one man and one woman. This is absolutely vital if we are to protect the values we hold dear.

The campaign to inform and promote the amendment, called RealMarriage.org, is being spearheaded by Family Action of Tennessee (FACT), directed by my friend, State Senator David Fowler, in association with Focus on the Family.

They need your help.

It takes more than a majority of the votes for the amendment to pass. We must have a number of votes equal to half the total votes cast in the Governor's election plus 1. Any number less than this, regardless of the percentage of favorable vote, will result in the amendment's defeat. People must go into the voting booth informed and ready to vote "yes."

And to that end, RealMarriage.org is running a radio and "get out the vote" campaign. Would you please prayerfully consider making as generous a contribution as you can to RealMarriage.org? You can contribute on-line by
clicking here or my mailing your check made payable to "RealMarriage.org" to 2479 Murfreesboro Road, No. 362, Nashville, TN 37217.

Best Regards and God bless,

Ed Bryant

P.S. - If you make a $2,000 donation by October 11, you will receive two tickets to a private reception on October 16 with Gary Bauer, and Tony Perkins, President of the Family Research Council. The event will be held on October 16 at 5:30 p.m. at Two Rivers Baptist Church in Nashville. Also included will be priority seating at the Stand For the Family Rally featuring Dr. James Dobson of Focus on the Family immediately following the reception.
