When will it be a moral and political good for the Arkansas government to go into the gambling business? When will it be a moral and political good to place any foster or adoptive child with gay couples? Never, is my answer. Not this year. Not next year. Not 10 years from now. Not 50 years from now. Never. As Arkansas closes in on Election Day, the issues are tightening up. It's going to come down to which registered voters will make going to the polls a priority. Lottery proponents are counting on those of us who have rejected lotteries at least 5 times in my lifetime to have grown weary of the battle, to give up. Groups that have embraced political correctness on gay parenting are hoping that finally, you have too. Please, with all I can ask you, don't give up. Don't EVER give up on your convictions because of weariness. If we do that, it is only a matter of time before we lose every fight. We have to resolve to fight bad policy every time it comes, and support good policy every time it comes, for as long as it comes. Early voting begins this coming Monday, October 20th and ends Tuesday, Nov. 4th. Please vote FOR ACT 1, The Arkansas Adoption and Foster Care Act and AGAINST AMENDMENT 3, the State-run lotteries amendment. Your kids and grandkids need you to stay in the fight. Don't let anything stop you from voting.
Sincerely,Jerry CoxFamily Council President
