But isn't this the same document that is linked at the start of the page?

Page 8: Family Values ― We support the affirmation of traditional Judeo-Christian family values and oppose the continued assault on those values.
Page 15: We pledge our influence toward a return to the original intent of the First Amendment and toward dispelling the myth of separation of church and state.
Page 8: Homosexuality ― We affirm that the practice of homosexuality tears at the fabric of society and contributes to the breakdown of the family unit. Homosexual behavior is contrary to the fundamental, unchanging truths that have been ordained by God, recognized by our country’s founders, and shared by the majority of Texans.
Homosexuality must not be presented as an acceptable “alternative” lifestyle, in public policy, nor should “family” be redefined to include homosexual “couples.” We believe there should be no granting of special legal entitlements or creation of special status for homosexual behavior, regardless of state of origin. Additionally, we oppose any criminal or civil penalties against those who oppose homosexuality out of faith, conviction or belief in traditional values.
