URGENT: Action Needed on NM DOMA Bill NOW

Two so-called defense of marriage act bills introduced by Republicans have so far been tabled and stopped in the New Mexico legislature this year. Now a Democrat, Sen. Lidio Rainaldi of Gallup, has introduced another that will be heard today. Please use Equality New Mexico's easy to use tool to contact members of the NM Senate Public Affairs Committee NOW:

From Equality New Mexico:
We're sorry for the late notice, but at the last minute EQNM was informed that Senate Bill 816 the "Defense of Marriage Act" (DOMA) that was introduced by Senator Lidio Rainaldi (D-Gallup) has been scheduled to be heard in the Senate Public Affairs Committe TODAY at 2:30 PM!

We need your help! In order to defeat this anti-gay legislation we need as many people as possible in the committee room to show the members that a yes vote will harm our families.

With just a few clicks you can send a message to each committee member via email (or FAX if the member doesn't have a published email). Please help protect ALL New Mexico Families ... CLICK TO TAKE ACTION NOW

I am really getting tired of this discriminatory crap, and what makes it particularly disgusting is that it's from a Democratic Representative. With so many important issues affecting our state, this clown wants to focus on something that has absolutely NO impact on anyone but the two people getting married. No matter who the guy or gal down the street marries, it doesn't change anything for anyone but them.

Rainaldi is one of the worst Dems. He is far right on many issues and claims to be a devout Catholic but I notice taking "gifts" is just fine.
