In an amazing and fairly unprecedented move, the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ has requested your urgent help - to contact your senators to ask them to support the marriage ammendment.
Remember the quote by a man named Burke: Evil triumphs when good men do nothing? Now is the time to stop letting evil triumph and to start doing something.
The church's stand has always been to remain neutral with most political years, never commenting on referendums, candidiates, etc. There must be something in the air or extremely urgent for the First Presidency to make this request.
Over at Meridian Magazine (an excellent online magazine for LDS readers), Maurine Proctor has given an excellent delineation about the request and how to go about following through. Here is the link.
Have you ever sat in a sunday school, mentally disappointed with ancient Israel for not listening to their prophet(s)? Have you ever sat in Relief Society or any other meeting, amazed at the hard-headedness of the Nephites (or Jaredites for that matter), in refusing to take action?
Can you imagine what Captain Moroni might have done if no-one had followed him when he lifted that torn piece of clothing, now so well known as the Title of Liberty?
Well, your moment is history has arrived. Do not be like ancient Israel, the Nephites, or even the Jaredites. This time, we as modern Israel WILL listen to the prophet.
Here is Maurine's link again. Now go get busy showing the world that modern Israel actually listens to their prophet!
