Subject: Familes to Rally at Utah Capitol Sept. 18 to support religion and marriage
Date: Fri Sep 12 20:57:05 MDT 2014
Dear Friends, Our family invites yours to stand at the Utah Capitol in SLC on Sept. 18th at 7 p.m. to show support for traditional marriage. Some people think this is an anti-gay rally. This is not the case. This is a rally to support religious freedom for all people, and includes concern for: 1) the rights of all people to have the continuing religious freedom to not be forced to cater to any agendas to which their conscience is opposed. 2) the rights of children to have legal access to both of their biological parents, even if one of them has married a gay partner 3) the right of any state to make its own decision on this (and other) issues, and not to be overpowered by the opinion of a federal entity We often talk about saving our Constitutional rights, but when will we actually participate to make it happen? At what point will enough people drop what they have planned for that night, and show up at the Capitol not only to listen to the speakers, but to stand as a witness of true principles with hundreds or thousands of other families and citizens who believe in these things? Sometimes all it takes is just to show up. Local and national media are watching whether Utah will fight for these rights or not. Please try to come. Thank you. Scott and Christel Swasey P.S.

It's powerful because it contains an implicit threat. Conservative focus on helping vulnerable is overdue - For conservatives, poverty and eroding economic security for middle income families are not simply social problems, but moral problems as well. Poll: Most Utahns want police to wear body cameras - Apparently the use of "cop cams" appeals to both the public and the police in Utah, though perhaps for varying reasons: documentation that protects the public, and documentation that backs up police actions. Whether by fire or blade, 'green' energy is killing birds - Turns out the sun's power isn't free if you're a bird caught in man's efforts to harness the sun. "Free" wind power isn't free to birds, either. Utah, where careful planning makes the sun shine - A new report finds that Utah is one of only nine "sunshine states" - meaning the state governments have enough financial assets to cover their financial liabilities. - Support Sutherland If you no longer wish to receive these emails, please reply to this message with "Unsubscribe" in the subject line or simply click on the following link: Unsubscribe - Sutherland Institute 15 W.
