Joe and marriage

We were told during the last election cycle by Joe Radinovich and our Democrat leaders, “Marriage is already protected under the State Constitution; it doesn’t need a Marriage Amendment to protect it.”

Six months into his term he is now voting against traditional marriage — against the will of the majority of House District 10B constituents (62.5 percent).

Separation of “church and state” is to protect all churches from the state, NOT the state from the churches.

We need as many signatures from 10B as possible to send this message: Joe, you represent us, not yourself.

I need these signatures ASAP. Give/send them to everyone in his district, email me your name and address if you can’t sign a petition and I will put you on my list,

I am a father, husband and Sunday school teacher. All these positions are connected to marriage/freedom of religion, not from religion.

A state mandate on what marriage is will remove my freedom of religion to believe and speak what is written in (what used to be used as a textbook), the Bible.

Marriage will be voted on in the next two weeks.

Doug Kern,
