Don’t be misled by all of the TV ads and hoopla.

Same-sex couples already enjoy all the same rights and benefits as married couples in Washington under the domestic partnerships “Everything But Marriage” law from 2009.

The referendum is about the definition of marriage; it’s not about whether same-sex couples deserve official state recognition of their relationships or the rights and benefits of marriage.

Marriage as the union of one man and one woman is in the public good. It serves the interests of men and women, of children, and of society itself. We as Washingtonians must rally together to reject Referendum 74 to preserve marriage for future generations.

Please consider the consequences that might face your business, child in school, church and the future of the USA!
