TN Republican Party Pushing Anti-Gay Marriage Amendment

As expected, the Tennessee REPUBLICAN PARTY is pushing the anti-gay Marriage Amendment to get their conservative anti-gay Christian base out to vote.
Here's the evidence!
Here is their website:

It is VITALLY IMPORTANT that progressive Democrats speak out AGAINST this unnecessary amendment to the Tennessee Constitution!
Please visit the Vote No on Amendment 1 and join the fight against discrimination and bigotry in Tennessee!
