There is a well-funded, well-organized effort to redefine marriage as we've known it for centuries, and impose same-sex marriage as the law of the land in all 50 states.
But YOU have the power to stop it.
Friend, you've helped the National Organization for Marriage stand up for marriage by contacting your elected officials, and I cannot thank you enough for that. But today, I must ask not only for your activism, but also for your generous financial support – anything you can afford to donate to our cause is critical.
Because right now, we are in the middle of our most important fight ever. The very future of marriage is at stake, and that is why we are recruiting Americans from all walks of life to stand up with us and declare, loudly:
Will you help? All I ask is that you take two simple actions right away:
Please click here to sign our online PETITION FOR MARRIAGE, which we'll send to your two U.S. Senators, telling them you oppose so-called "gay marriage."
Make your most generous contribution of $1,000, $500, $250, $100, $50 or even $25 to the National Organization for Marriage to help us repeal the new homosexual marriage law in New York and stop the anti-marriage radicals in the other 49 states.
It is vital we put unprecedented grassroots pressure on the Senate, because right now, President Obama is leading an unprecedented assault on marriage. He has declared that the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is unconstitutional, and legislation is moving through Congress to completely repeal DOMA.
On top of that, activists in New York State, with a heavy dose of backroom armtwisting from Governor Cuomo, persuaded lawmakers to betray their constituents as they pushed a same-sex marriage bill through in the closing hours of this year's legislative session.
But this is not the end of the fight, it is just the beginning.
We at NOM have promised to raise $2 million to help defeat the politicians who've betrayed marriage in 2012.
I am not overstating things when I say that right now is the most dangerous moment for marriage in American history.
And NOM's sole mission is to fight back and win.
We know how to stand up against the same-sex marriage bullies. Thanks to allies like you all over America, we've been fighting and winning since we were founded in 2007:
When a handful of judges imposed gay marriage in California, we led the charge to reverse that decision.
When gay marriage was shoved down the people's throats in Maine, we forced the issue onto the ballot, and the voters rose up in defense of marriage.
In Iowa, we helped voters throw three Supreme Court justices out of office for their same-sex marriage edict.
And when the media told us that gay marriage was "inevitable" in Maryland, we mobilized a powerful grassroots lobbying campaign and won.
In short, we know how to educate and mobilize Americans from all walks of life to rise up and declare loudly:
So please join our historic effort today by signing your PETITION and make your urgent, generous gift of $1,000, $500, $250, $100, $50 or $25—we need your voice and your financial support to win these difficult, expensive battles.
Thank you in advance.

National Organization for Marriage
P.S. One last thing—the radical same-sex marriage activists receive enormous financial donations from Hollywood celebrities and wealthy private foundations. The Human Rights Campaign—just one of the groups pushing gay marriage on you and me—rakes in more than $30 million per year! That's why it is so important for citizens like you—who support marriage—to donate whatever you can to help us fight back. So when you sign your PETITION FOR MARRIAGE, please also make one thoughtful financial gift of $1,000, $500, $250, $100, $50 or even $25 to the National Organization for Marriage.
