As we might expect, the American Family Association is all twisted up over Senator Bayh's position on the FMA. Or the Marriage Protection Act, as Mr. Wildmon is wont to call it. Mr. Wildmon remains clueless about any number of things, including the position of Senator Lugar on this amendment.
AFA has cleverly put all of Senator Bayh's phone numbers together for us. Let's make sure he hears from rational Hoosiers, those who support equal rights, those who oppose bigotry, homophobia and hatred, and let's make sure he hears from every voter who cares about human rights!
At the end of the AFA message is the usual shameless plea for money. I would suggest if you're looking for someplace to put your philanthropic dollars this week, that you send it to Senator Bayh, Senator Lugar, or Indiana Equality in honor of this Action Alert from the American Family Association.

Senator Bayh opposes Marriage Protection Amendment
Senator Evan Bayh is expected to vote against the Marriage Protection Amendment which comes up for a vote in the Senate on June 6.
This means he would prefer that a single activist federal judge have the authority to wipe out Indiana's state law that defines marriage as only between one man and one woman.
A vote for the Marriage Protection Amendment is a vote for traditional marriage. A vote against the MPA (which Bayh has indicated he will do) is a vote for homosexual marriage.
Senator Bayh needs to hear from you today! Call him. If the line is busy, keep calling.
Remember that no matter what Senator Bayh says, the bottom line is this: If he votes against the Marriage Protection Amendment, he is voting for the legalization of homosexual marriage.
Here are his phone numbers. We suggest you call the District Office if it is a local call, or call the Washington office if no local number is available.
Please call Senator Bayh today and tell him to vote for the MPA. If his lines are busy, please keep trying. He needs to hear from you personally.
If you have called in the past, please call again and remind the Senator that supporting this amendment is very important to the voters in his state.
