Federal Judge Declares Utah’s Marriage Law UnconstitutionalBy Cherilyn Bacon Eagar On Dec 21, 2013 1 Comment
I sent this email to my list yesterday. I’m following up with more information today. This is urgently critical. Please help us continue to represent our values in Utah and across this nation. Utah was cherry-picked as the first state, even though it was broadly considered to be the last bastion of defense of marriage in the nation. More to come soon…
It seems the Obama Administration likes to use the Friday before Christmas to deliver his “lovely” Christmas presents to us.
Remember 2010? Yes, it was ObamaCare wrapped up in a glittering, beautifully-wrapped package all tied up with a pretty bow.
Well, now that bow has unraveled and what’s inside is not so glittering, beautiful or pretty.
Today, again the Friday before Christmas, Utahns received their “Christmas” present from the Obama Administration: An Obama-appointed Federal district judge named Robert Shelby single-handedly declared that Utah’s Amendment 3 is unconstitutional in a 53-page opinion.
In that opinion he also proclaimed that the will of the people is irrelevant. He said so.
This is judicial activism in its “finest” hour.
The Attorney General’s office is going to appeal and will call for a stay.
We are actively engaged in this fight, as you know, and will be at the next legislative session in 2014 where we anticipate other challenges to marriage and family.
Christmas is right around the corner. Everyone is busy, but marriage and our children are most important to the future of our society.
Your help is urgently needed right now. It will take just a moment to give $25, $35, $50 or $100 or more to help us continue to protect children throughout the nation.
Utah is the number 1 targeted state in the nation for overturning constitutional amendments defining marriage between a man and a woman.
If Utah goes down, a strongly-conservative state on the marriage and family issues, the entire nation will follow.
We network with many other family issues groups at the legislature to educate our elected officials on a variety of topics. We have assisted with major events to bring the research to elected officials and to you showing that marriage between a man and a woman is the number 1 and best protection for the well-being of children.
Virtually every credible study shows that children are better off in every way in a home with both a mother and father who are married.
Marital “equality” is not about civil rights.
Based on these standards, gay marriage defenders have no constitutional leg upon which to stand.
Religious Liberties Undermined
If you are concerned, we need your help.

“It Won’t Affect Me – What’s the Big Deal?”
In other states that have legalized same sex marriage, the public schools are required to teach that same sex marriage and homosexual relationships are legal and no different from marriage between a man and a woman.
Frankly, children are being taught LIES in school. In fact, if you aren’t for “equality” you must be a bigot – or a “bully.”
If you are concerned that your children are being – or will be – indoctrinated or their religious beliefs challenged, you should be concerned about this challenge and others that Utah will face in the next legislative session.
Thank you so much for your kindness in the past and for your help today.
