Gay Marriage Legal In New York? Not If We Work Together!

 

Email Header Image

Dear Marriage Supporter,

As you know, the National Organization for Marriage fights to protect marriage in all 50 states.

But you also know that New York is critically important—more so than most others.

The same-sex marriage lobbyists have been focusing on the Empire State for a long time, pouring millions of dollars into their campaigns to permanently legalize gay marriage. Now they are focused on convincing you and your fellow citizens of the LIE that the fight is over.

That is why we have a special battle plan to protect marriage in New York in 2012, and why I am writing you today.

Our fight to repeal New York's same-sex marriage law will escalate in 2012. NOM has pledged $2 million to oppose pro-gay marriage legislators who betrayed us on marriage. We must send an emphatic message to the "business-as-usual" crowd in Albany: sell out your constituents at your own risk!

Over the years, NOM has defeated every pro-gay marriage Republican we have ever targeted. With your help, we will continue that trend in New York. We will win for New Yorkers their right to vote on a statewide referendum to uphold marriage and, I've no doubt, restore the definition of true marriage in the Empire State.

Will you help fund our 2012 campaign in New York by making one special gift to the NOM NY PAC right now?

The bottom line: 2012 will either be the year when traditional marriage makes a comeback...

...or it will be the year when the same-sex marriage lobbyists knock the doors down and begin their assault on marriage in all 50 states.

As always, the success of our campaign depends on you, Marriage Supporter.

So please, to protect marriage in New York, make one urgent financial gift today.

Thank you in advance, and God bless you.

Sincerely

Brian Brown

P.S. We know the anti-marriage bullies will outspend us in New York. Mayor Bloomberg, Governor Cuomo and their Wall Street buddies have already raised MILLIONS of dollars for the re-election campaigns of the senators who betrayed us. They will also use much nastier tactics. But the people are on our side, so as long as we have the resources necessary to spread the truth and fight back against the smear campaigns, we will win. So please make the most generous financial gift you can afford at this time. Thanks again.

    I'll file that under "never gonna happen." You NOMers better ask for a money-back guarantee before dropping a single dime on this plan.

    If you really want to help families why not spend $2 million on feeding and clothing some of NY's poor.

    Brian, I so appreciate your work. But what is the plan for NY? From what I read online, it would take everything going perfectly in our favor until 2014 until the initiative process becomes part of the NY constitution. Then, an anti-gay marriage initiative would have to be approved by the majority of voters in two separate elections. Wouldn't our contributions to NOM be better spent elsewhere?

    " I support marriage equality, the ability for all bodied HUMANS to marry the person of thier choice!"

    Truly? Marry their sibling, for example? Or a minor? Or their parent? How about marry more than one human at the same time?

    Where do you draw the lines around marriage? What would distinguish marriage from all other human unions, such that it maintain its unique status? And how would your lines of demarcation affect paternity law?

    James Gilliard,marriage exists to promote the practice of opposite-sex relationships by rewarding decisions to form relationships of that type in recognition of the benefits humanity receives from that specific practice.All humans have equal rights to do or not do what qualifies for those rewards.
