From Jonathan Saenz and Texas Values:
Tuesday, August 5: 10-2:00 PM
Today, a diverse group of state leaders and groups are holding a press conference to show their support for Texas’ effort to defend our marriage laws defining marriage as between one man and one woman. Many of these groups have filed legal briefs with the Federal Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in support of Texas marriage laws this week.
Now we need your help to stand for true marriage in Texas and support the Texas Constitution that defines marriage as one man and one woman!
Here’s what you can do to stand for marriage in Texas:
1. Sign the Texas Marriage Declaration at TexasMarriageDeclaration.com. If you haven’t already, join with thousands of fellow Texans and declare your support for marriage and for Texas’ right to self-governance.
2. Join the #1Man1Woman Tweet Storm. From 10-2:00 PM today, join a tweet storm in support of marriage. Please use the #1Man1Woman hashtag and see some suggested tweets below.
3. Facebook your support for marriage. Share the TexasMarriageDeclaration.com website on your Facebook page today and share some of our marriage graphics. See some images to share below.

Definitions matter. A descent into meaninglessness has been the hallmark of the push to redefine marriage #1Man1Woman #txlege
It’s a terrible abuse of power for a court to abandon the definition of #marriage adopted by the people of #Texas #1Man1Woman

As most of you know, I do not agree with Jonathan on this one. As long as the government controls marriage, it should be open to all citizens. If you think a definition is needed to restrict marriage to two people, then I would be fine with that. I would be better if the government got completely out of the marriage business and left it to the church where it belongs.
But I didn’t create this website to restrict opinion to only those that I agree with. If you are so inclined to help Jonathan and Texas Values, by all means, it is your right. Cherishing the First Amendment is okay but worthless unless you use it.
