I would like to know if the following has any truth to it.
Please forward this email to every Christian that you know. It is important that the Christian voters of Texas speak loud and clear in November, by SUPPORTING and voting YES to HJR 6. Of course you may be wondering why you have not heard of this proposed amendment before? The answer is simple. There is a grassroots effort in our Texas gay communities to keep conservatives in the dark. Since there will not be any big elections this November, the probability of people getting out to vote are slim. The gay community is planning to use our complacency against us. While we are not voting, they will be!
Please encourage everyone you know, to get out and vote on November 8th, in support of HJR 6. Educate your friends, family, and church members on the content of this amendment. I have enclosed a summary. We as Christians and as Texans need to send a message once and for all. While researching this amendment, the websites against it far outnumbered the ones in support of it. That is what prompted me to write. Pass this along.
PRAY!!! that the believers in Texas will rise up to vote in support of this resolution.
ACT!!! We are in need of Christians to educate the community of HJR-6.
