Uphold Morality in Arizona!
Focus on The Family Alert, April 24, 2001
Pro-family advocates in Arizona need IMMEDIATE help in stopping the state
from giving its official stamp of approval to homosexual sex, adultery,
cohabitation and lewd and lascivious sexual acts that have been illegal since
The state Senate could vote as early as Thursday on HB 2016, a bill that
would repeal existing state laws banning sodomy, cohabitation and lewd and
lascivious acts. It would also repeal one law prohibiting adultery. If the
bill makes it into law, homosexual sex, adultery and cohabitation would be
placed on the same level as the husband-wife relationship.
The state House has already passed the bill.
Consider the fallout if HB 2016 passes:
* Repealing laws banning cohabitation and sodomy would undermine efforts to
uphold traditional morality. For example, Scottsdale and other cities are
considering providing benefits and subsidies to unmarried sex partners,
whether homosexual or straight. The only legal basis for opposing spending
taxpayer money on these benefits is found in the laws against cohabitation and
* There will be no legal basis for opposing future elements of the
homosexual agenda, including homosexual adoption and special job protection
for homosexuals and the transgendered. The state would be one step closer to
making criminals out of business owners and even pastors who refuse to hire
openly homosexual job applicants.
* If we cannot draw moral boundaries related to sexual activity, how do we
oppose bestiality (sex with animals), polygamy, bigamy and even the sexual
abuse of children?
TAKE ACTION (for Arizona residents only):
1. Pray that God would bring about the defeat of HB 2016.
