Dear Marriage Supporter,
Sean Fieler is a good man. An investor and philanthropist, he supports dozens of good causes, including NOM's work to protect marriage.
But he knows his support for NOM and for marriage could make him a target for gay activists, just like we saw happen recently to Dan Cathy, the owner of Chick-fil-A.
Sean could have kept his support for marriage private.
Instead, drawing inspiration from Dan Cathy, Sean decided to become one of the first signers at KeepTheRepublicAndMarriage.com and "out" himself as a public supporter of marriage.
Sean said no more to intimidation of good Americans. He refuses to be silenced or intimidated:
Gay marriage activists are successfully using fear and intimidation to silence the majority of Americans who want to preserve marriage as God created it, the union of one man and one woman. To stop this cycle of fear and intimidation, we need courageous Americans to step forward and make their support public.
Every American has the right to hold their own beliefs, including pro-marriage Americans like you and me.
That's why I'm calling on YOU to join with Sean and trumpet your public support for NOM's work in defense of marriage by signing KeepTheRepublicAndMarriage.com.
Our Founding Fathers fought to bequeath to us a republic where everyone would enjoy the right to exercise their liberty to speak their mind, organize, and support causes they believe in, without fear of harassment and intimidation.
When Benjamin Franklin was asked by a woman what type of government the American people were going to have, he said, "A republic, madam, if you can keep it."
As proud Americans we know our challenge today is to keep the republic. And to do that in 2012 means keeping marriage and securing our right to publicly protect this sacred institution!
Please join me, Sean, and countless others who refuse to be silenced and intimidated. Sign up at KeepTheRepublicAndMarriage.com and add your name to the list of brave Americans fighting to keep the republic and what it stands for.
Together, united, we are strong enough!
