Message from Vote On Marriage.org

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting Radio Campaign Urges Citizens to Contact Legislators and Secure their Right to Vote on Marriage Airing on news/talk stations statewide
The campaign to allow voters to decide on the definition of marriage in Massachusetts - announces the launch of a radio advertising campaign that began June 12 on news and talk stations statewide.
The spots inform citizens that some Beacon Hill lawmakers want to kill the Protection of Marriage Amendment, and therefore the people's right to vote on the definition of marriage, when for a legislative vote on July 12.
"We know that 75% of Massachusetts voters believe they, not the courts, should decide on marriage," said Kris Mineau, president of Massachusetts Family Institute and spokesman for VoteOnMarriage.org. "But some lawmakers think they know better than the vast majority of the voters they represent, and are threatening to block a vote using parliamentary procedures which amount to nothing more than dirty politics."
Over 170,000 citizens across the state signed petitions last fall for the right to vote on marriage-the largest number of petition signatures collected in state history. The Protection of Marriage Amendment is now before Beacon Hill where 50 votes are needed this year and next year. If successful, the Amendment will go before the voters in 2008.
The radio campaign calls on the citizens of Massachusetts contact their legislators to support the Protection of Marriage Amendment during the July 12 Constitutional Convention.
Here is a sample of the ads:

In addition to the radio campaign, a newspaper campaign is planned for launch later this month.
