Thanks to all those who contributed to making the Values Voter Bus Tour through Iowa such a success last week! Co-sponsored by FRC Action and the Susan B. Anthony List, the tour covered 22 cities and more than 1300 miles in just 5 days.
From judicial appointments to abandoning DOMA, and in dozens of behind-the-scenes maneuvers designed to undermine marriage in our society, President Obama is quietly pushing our nation toward same-sex marriage. It's time to say “enough is enough,” and put the brakes on President Obama's pro-SSM agenda.
And the GOP presidential candidates seem to be getting the message. On Saturday afternoon we were thrilled to see the NOM Marriage Pledge signers take three of the top four spots in the Ames Straw Poll. And throughout the week, GOP hopefuls Michele Bachmann, Tim Pawlenty, Rick Santorum and Thaddeus McCotter all joined us at various points on the tour, sharing their commitment to marriage directly with the people of Iowa.
We've just finished a short recap video with highlights from last week's bus tour. I hope you'll take a few minutes to watch, and then share it with a friend.
We have much more to come in the days ahead, but would you take a moment right now to make a donation to help protect marriage? Perhaps you haven't donated at all yet in 2011. Your gift of $20, $35 or even $50 or more would send a strong message of support during these summer months. Perhaps you would consider becoming a monthly donor – even just $5 or $10 a month would help to sustain NOM and our work all through the year.
Thanks for all you do to support marriage. I hope you'll stand with us again today!
