Religious Liberty Platform Resolution

April 20, 2012

Attention all grassroots supporters of Religious Liberty.  Party Platforms are going to be written as the parties prepare for the State (and National) conventions this year.  Many Senate District/County conventions are going on this Saturday, April, 21st.  Look online or call your county headquarters for meeting details.  This means you have a great opportunity to take a stand for religious liberty (and other important issues) by submitting a resolution to your party’s platform at your local convention.

A resolution is a statement of principle that is voted on at a political convention.

To be eligible to participate, you must sign an affidavit stating your Party affiliation for the May 29 Primary. By claiming party affiliation at the Senate District/County convention you will not be able to vote in another party’s Primary or Run-off election.You may present as many resolutions as you like, but remember to make 12 copies to give to the Platform Committee members.

Below is a suggested resolution on Religious Liberty:

WHEREAS, religious liberty is our most fundamental constitutional freedom; and

WHEREAS, the First Amendment of the Constitution protects the free exercise of religion from government interference; and

WHEREAS, government at all levels is growing increasingly hostile to the free exercise of religion, and is trampling on our religious liberty in the courts, legislature, and through executive fiat; and

WHEREAS, a state religious liberty constitutional amendment provides the best guarantee of lasting protection for our citizens’ religious liberties from an activist court, overreaching legislature, or government bureaucracy; and

WHEREAS, thirty (30) states have state constitutional protection prohibiting a government agency from burdening a person’s free exercise of religion; now therefore

BE IT RESOLVED, that we call upon the Texas Legislature to safeguard our constitutional right of religious liberty by passing a state constitutional amendment that prohibits any government agency from burdening a person’s free exercise of religion.

Be it further resolved, that a copy of this resolution be sent to the ___________ Senatorial/County Convention Resolutions Committee from Precinct # ___ of the __________County  ______________ Party, with the recommendation that it be passed and sent to the State Convention Platform Committee of the ___________Party of Texas.

Voters Guide Update – Candidate Questionnaires Going out Today!

March 15, 2012

Now that the Texas Primary Election date has finally been set for May 29, 2012 and the filling deadline has passed, our questionnaires are now ready to be sent to the candidates.  This year we are joining forces with Heritage Alliance, American Family Association, and Texas Eagle Forum in sending out one joint questionnaire to candidates.  These invitations will be going out via email to the campaigns and will ask that the candidates log in and fill out the questionnaire electronically.  The email invitations will start going out today.

If you are a candidate in the Texas Republican Primary for State House, State Senate, U.S. House, U.S. Senate, State Board of Education, Supreme Court, Court of Criminal Appeals, or any other statewide office and do not receive an email invitation by the end of today, that likely means we do not have contact information for your campaign. If you do not receive an invitation today please contact, as soon as possible, Joni Boggs at jboggs@heritagealliance.com and provide her with an email address for the campaign so that we can send an invitation. The questionnaires must be filled out online.

Our 2012 Voters Guide will be distributed exclusively though our updated freevotersguide.com website. On freevotersguide.com, you will be able to access a personalized guide based on your address, and in addition to our comprehensive candidate questionnaire, you will find important information on candidates’ voting records, and have access to important voter registration and get-out-the-vote tools.   Be sure to visit freevotersguide.com and provide us your email address today to join our voters guide team to be kept up to date on when the voters guide will be released.

Texans deserve to know where candidates stand on important issues – so don’t miss out on the opportunity to be a part of the most widely distributed Voters Guide in the state!
