Following his February 24 announcement supporting a constitutional amendment, the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP) sent a letter to President Bush, expressing its congratulations for his stand against same-sex “marriage.”
While realizing that this measure will not stop “civil unions,” the American TFP believes it “removes from the homosexual movement any hope of an immediate victory and secures precious time for pro-family America, time it needs to organize fully for the underlying Cultural War.”
The Honorable George W. Bush
President of the United States
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington D.C. 20500
Dear Mr. President:
On behalf of the directors and members of The American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family, and Property, I congratulate you for today’s announcement supporting a constitutional amendment banning same-sex “marriage” in the United States.
That the sacred institution of marriage needs a constitutional amendment to defend it is a sad indicator of the strange corruption of our age. Yet only such an amendment can prevent activist courts from redefining marriage out of existence.
A constitutional amendment that defines marriage “as the union of a man and a woman” removes from the homosexual movement any hope of an immediate victory and secures precious time for pro-family America, time it needs to organize fully for the underlying Cultural War.
Time is of the essence. The American TFP prays that Congress will act quickly, approve the amendment and send it to the states for prompt ratification.
