Dear Marriage Supporter,
When the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals issued its ruling that Proposition 8 is unconstitutional, we were saddened, but not defeated.
After all, we fought long and hard to help the people of California vote on and pass Proposition 8, protecting marriage as a sacred union between one man and one woman in America's most populated state.
So when all that work—and the voices of seven million voters—was swept aside by two anti-marriage judges, we had every right to be outraged!
But we are not going to back down. At the end of the day, this setback will be simply a speed bump on our way to final victory at the U.S. Supreme Court...but only if we have the resources to see this case all the way through to the end.
That's why we launched our 7-day money bomb designed to raise $100,000 to immediately help appeal this ruling to the Supreme Court.
But we still have a ways to go to raise the funds we need to petition the Supreme Court to hear our case.
Thanks to faithful Americans all over the country, we've raised over $40,000 in just 5 days! And while this is a true blessing, we must reach $100,000 in order to have the funds needed to fight back against this ruling.
If we can raise the final $60,000, we will have the funds we need to continue this critical legal fight in defense of marriage.
Will you help us close this final gap, supporter of marriage?
Remember, the Proposition 8 case is about more than just California.
If we allow this ruling to stand, then every single legal protection for marriage in every single state is in danger...
...and the day will soon come when same-sex marriage is the law of the land all across America.
