On Wednesday, the Sydney Morning Herald reported
that same-sex marriage legislation will be debated in the NSW parliament next week. This comes as the ACT passed laws this week allowing same-sex couples to marry.
It is important we persuade NSW parliamentarians to uphold the institution of marriage by voting against this bill. Even though the federal government has vowed to challenge state-based marriage laws in the High Court, we can't simply assume there will be a good result.
Therefore we need your support; we encourage you to email, write letters, and telephone your MPs. Encourage them to remember why marriage is important. It provides a natural, timeless, and sustainable foundation for children and our society.

Thank you for your support. It really makes a difference.
