You're an Accomplice to Murder?!

Dear Marriage Supporter,

Just when you thought you'd heard it all...

Apparently believing that marriage is between a man and a woman, as millions of Americans like you and I do—and saying so publicly—is hate speech and equivalent to murder.

I'm not making this up. (To tell the truth, I don't have a good enough imagination to come up with this stuff.)

But I am completely serious when I say that this is exactly what NOM is fighting against every day: a vicious attempt to impose a radical social agenda while trying to silence anybody who disagrees.

Please make a donation to support the National Organization for Marriage today, and help us stand up to these vile attempts to silence and stigmatize supporters of traditional marriage! Stand with us today and help us raise $25,000 in the next 72 hours to make your voice heard!

You see, recently, actor Kirk Cameron went on the Piers Morgan show to promote his new film, Monumental. Cameron is a devout Christian and father of six (four of whom he adopted), who is not afraid to stand up for his beliefs—which he did when Piers (as he has been doing with so many social conservatives lately) turned the conversation quickly toward same-sex marriage.

Cameron explained that he believed marriage "was defined by God a long time ago...one man, one woman for life, till death do us part."

Well, as I'm sure you can guess, his answer and the subsequent discussion generated a swift and intense backlash. And it included this tweet from actress Roseanne Barr:

"Kirk or kurt or whatever Cameron is an accomplice to murder with his hate speech. So is rick warren. Their peers r killing gays in Uganda."

Yes, you read that right: Barr thinks anyone who believes in marriage is guilty of hate speech and an accomplice to murder!

According to Hollywood radicals bent on destroying marriage and the family, you and I are now accomplices to murder, and God's truth about marriage is nothing more than hate speech which leads to the killing of gays and lesbians in Uganda.

As you can see, the same-sex marriage movement is NOT about live-and-let live.

It's about viciously and aggressively imposing a radical transformative social agenda on society and ruthlessly silencing anybody who disagrees with them.

We have so many fights on so many fronts—none of which we can afford to lose if we're going to stem the tide eroding our fundamental cultural values. Please make a gift right away to help us make your voice heard.

Sure, we may be tempted to dismiss tweets from Roseanne Barr as absurd and removed from reality. But sadly they illustrate a much larger and more important point:

Proponents of same-sex marriage want to end the debate about the issue by silencing and stigmatizing us, the opposition.

That's the bottom line.

In their worldview, you and I don't have the right to say in public that it takes a man and a woman to form a marriage. So they try to brand us as bigots and haters...and now, murderers.

Marriage Supporter, it's up to people like you and me to stop them.

In love, we speak the truth, and let the American people be the judge.

Please act now.

If we can raise $25,000 in the next 72 hours, it will enable us to continue to fight. Your gift today will send a loud message to Hollywood elites like Roseanne Barr that everyone has a right to their opinion without slander and retribution.
