The Wyoming Republican Platform Guides Good Policy Decisions!
Dear Wyoming Republicans and County Leaders, Yesterday’s vote on the “Respect for Marriage Act” sadly saw our own Senator Lummis vote aye. This act threatens religious liberties and is opposed to the Wyoming Republican Party Platform which was ADOPTED UNANIMOUSLY at the May 2022 Republican State Convention by more than 400 delegates from across the state. Please reach out to our Federal Representatives and let them know our Platform is important to YOU and their representation needs to reflect their constituents’ values and priorities! Here’s the exact language of pertinent planks of our Platform: Plank 8 – Marriage is defined as the union of one man and one woman. Plank 6 – The freedom to practice one’s faith is a God-given fundamental natural right, secured by both the Constitution of the United States and the Wyoming Constitution, and shall never be infringed. The First Amendment does not require the expulsion of religion from public life. We must keep in mind the Judeo-Christian principles of the Founding Fathers when they wrote it; the practice of faith under this tradition encourages good moral behavior and the development of character that helps secure the other fundamental bases of our national citizenship. Freedom of religion, and the free exercise thereof, included the right to abstain from actions contrary to one’s religious beliefs. Friends, Congress keeps chipping away at the liberties we hold dear. Your action and faithfulness to the policies that make America a unique bastion of freedom play a critical role in tempering the liberal agenda. Never give up! Call or email your Wyoming Senators today and let them know how much this means to you, the ones who voted for them to represent us. Please approach your U.S. Senators with respect and kindness. There are many opinions in the public arena. Those expressed courteously are often best received and heard. Influence comes with persistent, respectful interaction.
