Log Cabin Republicans: Thank Rep. Ros-Lehtinen for co-sponsoring Respect for Marriage Act

An email I received today from Log Cabin Republicans:

Ileana Ros-Lehtinen

Thank You Congresswoman Ros-Lehtinen!

By becoming the first Republican to co-sponsor the Respect for Marriage Act, Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen showed what it means to be a leader.

Now, she is under attack from the so-called National Organization for Marriage, which is flooding her office with anti-gay messages.

Will you help us show our appreciation for her support? Join Freedom to Marry and Log Cabin Republicans in thanking her:

Rep. Ros-Lehtinen did something that you and I can relate to: she spoke out when silence would have been easier. She understands that DOMA hurts same-sex couples and their families in Florida and across the country. Now, because of her commitment to ending federal marriage discrimination, she is facing vocal opposition.

It's up to us to make it clear that she made the right decision.

This is our chance to send a message of appreciation. Thank Congresswoman Ros-Lehtinen for co-sponsoring the Respect for Marriage Act:

Please sign this thank you letter today, and pass it on!

Thanks for all you do,

R. Clarke Cooper
Executive Director

"Being gay in ... [the Mormon] culture is beyond hell … I wanted to be cured so badly. The family is the center of Mormonism -- it is the sacred, potent unit. … It is a great failure that family can only be the family almost by the Ozzie and Harriet definition, and anything outside that is not family at all." Trevor Southey, artist

"The only marriage sanctioned by God is of a man to a woman. In the case of a gay person, they really have no hope. … And to live life without hope on such a core issue I think is a very difficult thing." Marlin Jensen, official LDS historian.

"Homosexuality Is sin: Next to the crime of murder comes the sin of sexual impurity." Excerpt from a 2002 Mormon pamphlet.

"We do not intend to admit to our campus any homosexuals. If any of you have this tendency and have not completely abandoned it, may I suggest that you leave the university immediately after this assembly. ... We do not want others on this campus to be contaminated by your presence." Ernest Wilkinson, president of Brigham Young University, in a 1965 lecture to the BYU student body, titled: "Make Honor your Standard."
