The following message was sent to Senator Mark Schoesler (R) of the 9th district.

















TO:  

Senator Mark Schoesler

FROM:  

Mr. Joe Reilly

BILL:  

5688 (For)

SUBJECT:  

Disappointed

MESSAGE:  

Dear Senator Schoesler,

SB 5688 is a bill to compromise with those who believe that marriage should be reserved for different-sex couples. The bill offers marital-equivalent benefits to those committed couple who are denied the right to marry by our state DOMA law in a complex and confusing way, while denying them a simple legal marriage license endowed with hundreds of years of common law rights and responsibilities. You voted against this bill even though it threatens no marriages. In case you aren't aware, those affected live right here in the 9th LD. On the plus side, when 50-60% of these couples break up, the lawyers will make a lot more money dissecting the domestic partner laws than if it were a marriage dissolution. That'll stimulate the economy.

If you think there is a culture war, you are woefully misinformed. There are simply people trying to live their lives who refuse to accept 2nd-class citizenship anymore. I hope you will change your mind and offer a public endorsement of this bill.

Your constituent,

Joe Reilly
