>>Subject: help fund print ads
>>
>>Dear Marriage/Civil Union Supporter,  You have probably seen the
>>opposition's deceptive and desparate print ads in Vermont's major daily
>>newspapers this
>>week, designed to stir up fear:
>>
>>"THERE'S ONLY ONE WAY TO END THE THREAT TO TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE NOW, AND
>>KEEP ITS FUTURE SAFE: WITH AN AMENDMENT TO VERMONT'S CONSTITUTION." ...
>with
>>the "Marriage: The 11th Hour" Hour-glass symbol to cut out and put in your
>>car or home window.
>>
>>"House Passes Gay Marriage.  The following legislators voted against
>>traditional Vermont family values: ... The future of your children and
>>grandchildren is now in the hand of 30 Vermont Senators and the Governor."
>>
>>"We DON'T WANT same-sex marriage.  AND WE WON'T BACK DOWN.  Call your
>>Senators AGAIN, and DEMAND a Constitutional Amendment to save marriage
>>NOW. ... This is Marriage's 11th Hour, and the People of Vermont demand a
>>voice.  STAND FIRM.  STAND UNITED.  CALL NOW." ... with the Hour-glass
>>symbol again.
>>
>>
>> Do these ads make you SICK?
>>
>>
>>If these ads have rubbed you the wrong way more than a bit, and you would
>>like to support ads in favor of providing same-gender couples the benefits
>>and protections given to heterosexual couples via marriage as ordered by
>>the Vermont Supreme Court ... in favor of ending discrimination against gay
>>and lesbian Vermonters ... in favor of recognizing that gay and lesbian
>>Vermonters are equal citizens entitled to equal rights ... encouraging
>>support for our Representatives who voted for civil union and urging our
>>Senators to do the same ...
>>
>>      PLEASE SEND YOUR AD CONTRIBUTION TO:
>>
>>    Vermont Freedom to Marry Action Committee
>>         PO Box 1038
>>    Middlebury, VT  05753
>>
>>and indicate that your contribution is designated for print ads.
>>
>>Thank you for your support!  Print ads are EXPENSIVE!  Your contribution
>>will really help, and will translate directly into ads countering mistruth
>>and fear, in support of civil rights for gay and lesbian Vermonters.
>>
>>Yours for civil rights,
>>Dorothy Mammen
